Volunteer Experiences for Vets and Vet Nurses in the Pacific Islands.

SPAW is an animal aid organisation working on Pacific Islands. We recruit industry professionals and work with local agencies to run free veterinary care and spay/neuter clinics within communities on our neighbouring Pacific Islands.  SPAW is a NZ based registered charity.

Our depth of services to Pacific Islands includes Veterinary Care, Spaying and Neutering, Animal Husbandry - Livestock care, parasite and vaccine programmes, humane education, training and skills development, outreach & village field clinics, assisted companion animal export services and research.

We work alongside local agencies on Tonga, Vava'u, Samoa, Fiji, Niue and the Cook Islands.
