About Us

Spay Academy Spain was set up by director and senior veterinary professional, Dr Luis Sainz-Pardo. With over 20 years’ experience of working within the veterinary industry, Luis is known for his valuable work with Vet Abroad and Practice Aid.

luissainz-pardo-1Having worked previously on a similar Spain-based neutering course, Luis was keen to ensure this unrivalled opportunity was developed to offer all qualified vets and final year UK University veterinary students the opportunity to progress their surgical skill.

Spay Academy Spain works to support the Spanish rescue centre, Scooby. A privately owned refuge and registered charity, Scooby is the largest safe haven in Spain for a wide variety of animals. Its work, however, is heavily focused on the tragic situation of unwanted Galgos (Spanish greyhounds) and this is where the SAS is able to support with their neutering needs.

Based at the Scooby rescue centre in Medina del Campo, just North of Madrid, Spay Academy Spain runs multiple courses a year open to any qualified vets and final year UK University veterinary students.
