South Pacific Animal Welfare runs free veterinary aid programmes on South Pacific Island nations. We focus on stabalising canine populations via targetted desexing programmes, we vaccinate against the deadline Parvovirus, we provide emergency surgeries and we educate. We have been operating in the South Pacific for 10 years and often our services are the only lifeline for animals in need and usually we are the only veterinary service that community may see in any given year. We were founded due to our strong cultural and geographical connection to South Pacific Island communities. Welcome to our journey.

More about us

South Pacific Animal Welfare is a NZ based charity. Our goal is to inspire change to the health and well being of animals by being present and active on south pacific islands. Our organisation works with island communities to provide free veterinary care, de-sexing surgeries, parvovirus vaccines, parasite control and emergency relief. We have introduced our programme to the islands of Tongatapu, Vava'u, Eua, Upolo, Sava'ii, Rarotonga, Niue, Fiji and Taveuni.

Our philosophy is to run clinics where all of our services are free to the communities that we are working in. This means any animal can receive veterinary care regardless of the financial situation of their family or community.

We recruit volunteer veterinarians and vet nurses who are often the only conduit of veterinary medicine to these animals and communities.

SPAW was founded because of a very real need and New Zealand shares a strong historical and cultural relationship with the South Pacific.

It is our goal to see veterinary care accessible to our neighbouring communities in the South Pacific.
