SPANA is an animal welfare charity for the working animals of the world. Animals are essential to millions of families in the developing world. We improve the lives of working animals through, free veterinary care, education & training and emergency response.
Where we work
Our work takes us to the world’s poorest communities, where people would struggle to provide for their families without their animals. At present we have permanent clinics in seven countries as well as outreach and emergency programmes across the world.
