SPANAThe Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad
#Animal #Welfare #Marrakech #Spana
Domestic and working animals tend to be the forgotten ‘victims’ of any financial crisis. Some owners can no longer afford to feed their animals and simply abandon them. Others cannot afford veterinary care and sick animals go untreated.
Marrakech is fortunate to have a centre funded by the UK Animal Charity SPANA which was founded in 1925 by a remarkable mother and daughter team, Kate and Nina Hosali, after they had witnessed the suffering of animals on their travels through North Africa.
SPANA’s mission is to improve the lives of working animals (horses, donkeys etc.) by providing free veterinary care, animal welfare education/training, and emergency response on the ground. SPANA funds a vital network of veterinary centres and mobile clinics in some of the poorest countries in the world.
Amongst many other things, the SPANA centre in Marrakech provides free health checks for the 300 horses which pull the famous ‘calèches’ (tourist carriages) of Marrakech. They have also installed water troughs throughout the city so that the horses have water in the heat of the summer ( in August it can reach 50C°).
Check out their great work in Marrakech and elsewhere at +SPANA Charity.
