Man riding horse in Tunisian desertSPANA has been working in Tunisia since 1925 and our three veterinary centres and three mobile clinics treat around 23,000 working animals each year.

Alongside our three veterinary centres SPANA operates three mobile clinics, treating 23,000 animals each year. We also have an interactive education bus to teach the next generation of animal owners about proper animal welfare.

Almost all of the working animals we treat, including many camels, are in rural areas well away from tourist towns. The infrastructure is poor and animals are often the only means of transport.

SPANA’s ‘hands-on’ education exhibition has been installed in a specially adapted bus which tours the country. The interactive exhibition focuses on animals and their place in the local environment and reaches tens of thousands of children each year.
