At home with donkeys in Zimbabwe

In 2017, SPANA will once again run International Working Animal Day on 15 June to raise awareness about the vital role played by working animals in developing countries around the world.

Working animals – such as horses, donkeys and camels – are relied upon by one billion of the world’s poorest people for their livelihoods. More than 200 million working animals worldwide do the jobs of trucks, tractors and taxis and, by transporting goods and people, make it possible for impoverished families to earn a living.

Find out more about working animals below: watch our video, download our factsheet, and show your support for working animals by updating your social profiles with our International Working Animal Day Twibbon.
