Morocco

Donkey foal in MoroccoSPANA has been working in Morocco since 1925. We do more for working animals here than anywhere else, treating more than 115,000 animals each year and teaching almost 28,000 children yearly through our education centres.

SPANA also operates a number of mobile clinics which reach working animals in remote communities from the edges of the Sahara to the heights of the Atlas Mountains.

In addition, we have several other special projects. For example, in Marrakech, we run a free health check up scheme for the city’s 300 Caleche horses. We have also built nine water troughs on main routes so the horses have easy access to water as they pull tourist carriages around the city. This simple idea has made a huge difference to the welfare of these beautiful and iconic horses.

SPANA runs an extensive education programme in Morocco. Where there is a classroom there is often a garden with a pond. In the classroom vets teach the children about animal welfare and the environment.
