South Pacific Animal Welfare (SPAW) was founded in 2010 to provide animal aid and desexing programmes to animals living on islands in the South Pacific. New Zealand run and managed, the organisation is often the only life-line of hope for animals who are injured, abused or sick. SPAW recruits veterinarians and veterinary nurses from New Zealand, Australia and around the world to help us deliver free veterinary services on the islands of Tongatapu, Vava’u, Niue, Fiji, Samoa and Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.
The charity is responsible for the introduction of regular veterinary clinics on several south pacific islands since 2010. Often, SPAW volunteers are the only veterinary professionals an island community will see and it is our hope that by being present and fostering positive animal welfare behaviours that over time people will display higher levels of compassion for all animals. Our services include desexing dogs and cats, livestock care, varying surgerical procedures, and the provisioning parvovirus vaccines and parasite care to as many animals as we can reach during a field clinic.
