We help South Pacific islands to care for their animals. We provided emergency relief, medicinal support and advice and run field clinics.
South Pacific Animal Welfare has been working in the South Pacific since 2010.
Your donation will help our organisation continue to assist our partner islands through the Covid-19 era, by sending much needed medicinal supplies to island communities. We are also planning to send clinical teams from 2023. The need is great, and your donation means the world to us, our partner islands and the animals who receive care as part of our ongoing programme.
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.
