Working with: Tree of Life for Animals (TOLFA)
In remote areas of India, sick and injured working animals can have absolutely no access to the veterinary services that they vitally need.
To make a real difference to animals in 24 outlying villages surrounding Ajmer town in Rajasthan, SPANA will be funding partner organisation Tree of Life for Animals (TOLFA) to buy a mobile veterinary clinic that will allow veterinary professionals to tend to working animals in need and advise animal owners in proper welfare. They will also be teaching the five freedoms in local village schools so that the next generation better understands how to properly care for a working animal.
Working with: Help in Suffering
In the arid climate of northern India, hardy camels are a valuable source of income for local communities. That’s why SPANA has teamed up with Help in Suffering to run mobile clinics which have treated more than 250 camels in the past year.
Growing on the important work being done reaching rural communities, funding for 2016 will support two more mobile clinics in Bassi and Jaipur, providing care to another 500 camels every month. Funding helps support vets, medicine, education, and humane equipment exchanges.
