Welcome to SPEAR - an established Large Animal Welfare Charity. Our objectives are to provide support and care for elderly, infirm or unwanted large animals and to educate and promote an understanding of their needs.

The Wolf Run is a run with a difference-  the 10 kilometer course is made up of raw natural terrain; open countryside, woodland, lakes, thick mud, and a combination of natural and man made obstacles! On the 15th of June seven runners, Team Canis Lupus, completed the Wolf Run challenge at Stanford Hall, Leicestershire and raised a total of £572.00 for S.P.E.A.R.  The runners were not put off and plan to complete The Winter Wolf in November with hopes of matching the total raised. Canis Lupus would like to wish a huge thanks to everyone who donated to S.P.E.A.R! 







We take the SPEAR stalls out and about to many venues all through the Spring and Summer, fund-raising and publicising SPEAR's work for horses and ponies in desperate need. Here we are with the teddy tombola at Hagley and Halesowen Countryside Show:
