APOPO is an international humanitarian organization committed to saving lives by training animals to rid the world of landmines and tuberculosis.

Last fall SPIRE adopted a Hero Rat named Baraka and a Hero Dog named Gizmo.
Our Pet Heroes have been hard at work detecting landmines in Ukraine and TB in Africa and other parts of the world.

Through our support and that of many others, APOPO, in partnership with the Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is working to survey about 5 million square meters in Ukraine by the end of 2025 – all done by Hero Rats and Dogs and their handlers!!
We are so proud of our Pet Heroes Baraka and Gizmo!!
