AISPA - Anglo Italian Society for the Protection of Animals

AISPA are a british based charity who raise funds worldwide for animal welfare organisations in Italy. AISPA contributes funding to twenty sanctuaries throughout the country and offers them support via their 3 voluntary representatives, 2 of whom are vets who have worked for the charity for over 20 years.

The funding they provide helps to support the purchase of medicines, surgical equipment, rescue vehicles, education and training. They also fully fund a mobile spay clinic which includes stray sterilisation initiatives in the areas visited.

All of the sanctuaries supported are active spay and neuter centres. Many regularly carry out trap-neuter-release initiatives in their local communities as there are still many feral cat and dog colonies throughout Italy. They also pursue education programmes, particularly with school children who will visit sanctuaries as part of a school visit which helps to change inherited 'cultural values'.

The sanctuaries supported by AISPA are encouraged to pursue independent fundraising and to gain support from within their local communities. AISPA funding is conditional upon the sanctuaries spaying and neutering all incoming animals and re-homing as many as possible.
