Help SPAW conduct multiple island vet clinics in the pacific in 2017. Give a gift for yourself or a friend this xmas!


South Pacific Animal Welfare will be running multiple veterinary clinics in 2017. We are unfunded by the government and have to raise every penny it costs to purchase medicines, equipment and supplies for our clinic activity. Whether it is Samoa, Niue, Tonga, Vava'u or Fiji, our clinics ensure animals in remote island locations receive desperate veterinary care at no cost. The only NZ charity operating in the pacific providing veterinary care - your donation will have a life saving impact on the lives of dogs, cats, horses, cows, marine life on a neighbouring pacific island in 2017.

If you would like your gift as a Christmas Present for a friend or family member, simply donate and email us - we will send a lovely Christmas Card acknowledging your donor gift that benefits the lives of island animals -

About us

South Pacific Animal Welfare is a NZ based charity.

We provide veterinary care and related services to animals living in island communities in the South Pacific. New Zealand run and managed, SPAW is often the only life-line of hope for animals who are injured, abused or sick and a major contributor to reducing the stray dog and cat populations by providing regular desexing clinics.

SPAW recruits veterinarians and veterinary nurses from New Zealand, Australia and around the world to deliver free veterinary services to the islands of Tonga (Tongatapu, Vava’u, Nomuka, Eu'a), Fiji (Taveuni), Samoa (Savai’i), Nuie and Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.

SPAW volunteers are often the only veterinary professionals an island community will see and it is our hope that by being present and fostering positive animal welfare activities, over time, people will display higher levels of compassion for all animals.

Our services include desexing small animals, specifically dogs and cats, surgical procedures, health checks, vaccinations, parasite control treatments and livestock care to as many animals as we can reach during a community clinic and remote village/field locations.
