  SPANA, the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad is a voluntary organisation and registered charity founded in Britain in l923.  There are ten centres or refuges where animals are treated or hospitalised and ten mobile clinics going out from these centres to souks (markets) all round the country. Large numbers of working equines can be given basic veterinary care - worming, hoof treatment, wound treatment and dentistry - particularly rasping of teeth.

An agreement with the Veterinary School in Rabat means that all veterinary students must complete two weeks field experience with a mobile clinic, learning basic handling and diagnostic skills. They also have an opportunity to learn surgical techniques, under qualified veterinary surgeons in the free dog and cat spaying programmes.

An education programme is aimed, not only at vets and current animal owners, but at the next generation of Moroccan citizens, by fundamentally changing their attitudes. Interactive exhibitions are being set up in several of the bigger centres, and the National Environmental Education Centre, situated by the lake of Sidi Bou Ghaba has received over 45,000 students so far.
