APOPO is an International Humanitarian Organization dedicated to the detection and eradication of land mines and tuberculosis throughout the world.

Did you know that over 60 countries are contaminated with hidden landmines and other explosive remnants of war or that tuberculosis is the world’s most deadly infectious disease?

APOPO’s Mission Statement is to “Protect people and the planet with innovative solutions using trained rats and other scent detection animals.”

Due to their size, light weight, and training, these Hero Dogs and Rats have helped detect countless landmines and saved thousands of lives through their work. In addition to saving lives through land mine detection, these Hero Animals have saved thousands from the deadly TB virus. Not a single HeroDog or HeroRat has been harmed doing their work for APOPO.

SPIRE Integrated Solutions is extremely proud to support APOPO through our adoption of our own little Heros – Gizmo, the HeroDOG and Baraka, the HeroRAT.
