England (London): SPANA – Providing Free Veterinary Care To Working Animals Around The World.





SPANA is a wonderful animal organisation as you can see from the links below. I am pleased to be a SPANA supporter knowing that my monthly donation goes towards assisting animals in so much need around the world.

Take a trip here and see how working animals are being supported without cost to the owners; all from donations and funds provided by supporters.

Regards Mark.



SPANA; or the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad; is based in London, England. It also has an office n Australia:



https://spana.org/about-us/   – Established in 1923, SPANA’s goal is simple: to improve the welfare of working animals in the world’s poorest communities. Through three key areas – treating, training and teaching – we’re inspiring others to act in the best interests of working animals while also providing practical, professional and sustainable solutions today. We recognise that the fortunes of working animals and people go hand in hand: in the developing world, just one working animal can support an extended family of up to 30 people. SPANA’s work improves the lives of working animals while supporting the communities that depend on them. We rely entirely on our loyal supporters to help us in our huge but vital task.


Our History

In 1923, Kate Hosali and her daughter Nina set off for North Africa as tourists; it was a journey that would last a lifetime. As they travelled through the countryside, passing bustling souks, remote communities and rural farms, they were inspired by much of what they saw. But they were also struck by the awful sight of donkeys, mules and camels – malnourished, weak, buckling under the weight of huge loads; suffering with wounds inflicted by poorly fitting harnesses.
