Every day, thousands of animals are overworked, abused, and injured through inhumane hard labour.
They’re often forced to carry heavy loads for farming, festivals, or construction — weights well beyond their capacity — or used unethically in tourism. These animals work in punishing environments, given little to no rest, and work with painful harnessing and untreated wounds. They are frequently without adequate water and nutrition.
Since 2007, Animal Aid Abroad has been dedicated to improving the lives of working animals, particularly in the poorest communities in the world. Our first priority is always direct intervention to relieve suffering and abuse. We partner with local organisations to provide veterinary clinics to treat sick and injured working animals, educate local communities, and provide much needed shelter, food, water, medical supplies, and care to suffering animals.
