Association Mira Protection des Animaux et de l'Environnement MA Morocco

We went to the shelter on February 27th : there were only 3 bags of dog food left!

We saw hungry dogs eating bread with the remaining food.

Worse, since our visit, the last bags of food have all been used, Anas and Mira cannot buy any more because of the lack of funds.

They have tried online collections but no one is helping them, suppliers refuse to work with them, and the numerous SOS launched to foreign foundations are unsuccessful.

Anas and Mira are striving to save the suffering Moroccan dogs, but cannot continue without help, and count on us to accompany them in this difficult time.

We promised Anas and Miras that we would launch this collection for their shelter, even if we don't know if it will succeed.

We would like to send 4000 kg as soon as possible.

100% transparency guaranteed.

 

 

1. During our visit on February 27th, there were only 3 bags of dog food left, which have all been used since then...

When we visited the shelter on February 27th, there were only 60kg of dog food left at the shelter. This stock ran out several days ago, but Anas cannot buy anymore dog food.... Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

When we came, even if there was still a small amount of food left, the dogs were already hungry: they were enjoying a few pieces of bread... Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

For months, the association has been struggling to feed the dogs at the shelter. We went there on February 27th, and could only notice that there were only 3 small bags of dog food left...

The few bags we photographed have been finished since March 1st, Anas and Mira don't have enough money to buy more. 

Relying on donations, which remain rare and random, they are forced to find makeshift solutions day after day "For today, I don't know, I'm going to prepare chicken feet with bread" Anas told us on March 1st, since he had no food left...

 

2. Dogs haven't been eating their fill for weeks, they need to get proper food as soon as possible

Due to the lack of funding, Anas and Mira have been forced to impose rations on the dogs for several weeks: bread, chicken heads and legs are barely completing the few kibbles they manage to get... Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

Anas always take pictures of the empty bags, to post them on his social networks: he always hopes this will lead to new donations, but unfortunately it doesn't really work... 

 

Some dogs, more fragile, lose weight and weaken rapidly: Smella, gathered two months ago in the slums near Casablanca, has a vital need for food. Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

Bella, 10, was left homeless when her former owners moved out. Lethargic, she barely moves and shows great signs of weakness. Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

The lack of funding endured by Anas and Mira is not new, but its consequences are increasing week after week, as their own resources are running out: they can no longer afford to buy dog food.

For several weeks now, dogs have been eating insufficient quantities of kibbles, which barely cover half of their needs. The few additional carcasses that Anas and Mira manage to obtain do not change much "This remains very insufficient for dogs and puppies"

Already weakened by their diet, the dogs are not in a condition to face a total absence of kibbles!

 

3. Most of the dogs suffer from illness, injury or disability: we must protect them from hunger!

Gathered from the street in February, Bounty weighed barely 7kg and was totally dehydrated... handicapped by the rear axle, he will probably never walk again. Unable to leave him on the street, Anas took him back to the shelter and financed his medical care: he now hopes he can help him recover... Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

When Pedro arrived at the shelter after being hit by a car, he was suffering from serious injuries to his hind legs and from a severe infection in his mouth. Thanks to the care of Anas and Mira, he gradually recovers the use of his limbs, but he must also regain his strength. Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

Abused by his former owner, Dove suffered multiple untreated injuries before being rescued. One of his eyes had to be removed, and he now remains blind. Dove also has leishmaniasis, whose symptoms may worsen without proper food. Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

Rosa was only 12 months old when she was found in an accident. Paralyzed from the rear axle, she suffered for several months, and is now rediscovering the joy of moving around with a cart. Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

Arrived at the shelter after an accident, Kai suffers from a disability from which he will never recover, and with which he has learned to live. At 15 years old, he simply needs a quiet place and enough food to be at peace. Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

Left alone in the mountains near Casablanca, Vabra has a failing nervous system, possibly due to a previous distemper: his body is shaken by permanent tremors. Photo taken by Animal Webaction

 

Atika is only 8 months, but already has a very heavy past: found paralyzed, she is gradually recovering at the shelter. It is impossible to say if she will ever walk again.

Because they only have a small shelter, and few resources, Anas and Mira stick to gathering dogs who seem to be in great pain, and cannot endure a life on the street.

As a result, their shelter welcomes a large majority of dogs with disabilities due to accidents or ill-treatment, but also dogs suffering from diseases: leishmaniasis, scabies, demodecia, square disease etc....

 

4. If the collection fails, dogs won't receive any food

A failed collection on Animal Webaction

 

We can take actions, we have already booked a truck and pallets, but we have to pay for it before March 08th.

If the collection fails, we will not be able to pay, the departure of the truck will be cancelled and none of the collected food will be delivered...

If the collection fails, we will refund all donors.

 

5. No supplier is willing to work with the shelter, and online fundraisings are not working!

The last collection launched by the association: only €10 collected out of the €400 requested, even though the collection is coming to an end...

 

The shelter is officially registered, but does not receive any subsidies: the money needed to care for the dogs comes mainly from Anas and Mira's own wallets, and to a lesser extent from the few donations they receive.

Unfortunately, these donations are still rare and online pools do not work. Because they have very little money and cannot afford to buy large quantities of dog food, no supplier is willing to work with them.

Their only solution is to put themselves into debt with a veterinarian who still agrees to give them credit, but the food is much more expansive this way, and they keep amassing debts!

 

6. Despite multiple actions taken and SOS sent out, no foundation agrees to help them: Anas and Mira are discouraged

 

While setting up their association, Anas and Mira were convinced that they would receive external help when the time came, that solidarity would work, but it is hard to get there.

To date, only a French association has come to their rescue: essentially by facilitating adoptions, and by sharing as much as possible the needs and rescues of the shelter. On the other hand, substantial and continuous financial assistance is impossible for this association: "From time to time when I can I help them either by setting up a fundraising, or on my own money" says its President, Fabrice Bienio.

As for seeking partnerships with other associations, all are beginning to lose hope after many unsuccessful attempts: "It is a waste of time and energy, it is clear that Morocco is not a priority".
 

 

7. Death threats and ongoing complaints: Anas and Mira had to move their shelter in a hurry to save their dogs!

Because they were bothered by the dogs' smells and barking, the neighbours of the former shelter grounds campaigned for months to see them leave.

In addition to the complaints filed, various neighbours threatened to poison the dogs several times: one of them even entered the shelter with a gun to scare Anas and Mira away.

Worried about their dogs and their family, they decided to move to another totally isolated area at the end of 2018. In addition to the costs involved by the move, a lot of work also needs to be done, and the trips required for dog rescues, veterinary consultations and food purchases are greatly complicated.

 

8. Precarious doghouses, insufficient separations: fights between dogs start to break out at the shelter, and are accentuated by the lack of food!

Because there are no enclosures, and not enough separations, fights sometimes arise: Smiley has had the painful experience recently....

 

The dogs have no kennels strictly speaking: makeshift houses have been built for them urgently, until Anas and Mira can do more...

 

Having moved in a hurry, Anas and Mira set up a new shelter from scratch in record time. Unfortunately, no pens have been built so far: a few separations simply divide the dogs into smaller packs.

The proximity between the dogs, the absence of houses and especially the lack of food unfortunately leads to fights between the dogs, which Anas and Mira try to control as best they can...

 

9. Facing so many difficulties, Anas and Mira are forced to choose between treating the dogs or feeding them: an impossible situation!

Scabies, distemper, parvovirus... the shelter already experienced various epidemics. To avoid them, it is essential to treat contagious diseases before they spread to the entire shelter, regardless of the costs incurred.

 

Because they only take in weakened dogs, and more or less severely injured, Anas and Mira are constantly confronted with very high veterinary costs.

Faced with the difficulties encountered, they have stopped rescuing new dogs for now, but there are still vaccines, deworming, and diseases that sometimes occur unexpectedly and need to be treated: distemper and parvovirus already affected several dogs at the shelter.

Anas and Mira often have to choose between buying kibbles or financing medical care...

 

10. Rejected and exterminated, Moroccan street dogs live on probation

On social networks, animal advocates try to alert when new killings take place, in order to protect as many dogs as possible

 

With an estimated population of around 2 million stray dogs, Morocco has been carrying out mass slaughter operations at regular intervals for decades.

Dogs are poisoned with strychnine, or shot with a gun, usually in the spring: before the arrival of tourists, or any other important international event.

Although spay/neuter programmes have already been carried out in some Moroccan cities, they have so far always been abandoned eventually, as their results are too long to be seen.

 

11. Anas and Mira put everything at risk to save the dogs of Morocco

As a couple and parents of two children, Anas and Mira started with one rescue, then two, then a few others led in parallel of a busy life, before making the decision to create a shelter.

Mira has since been forced to resign in order to take care of all the dogs, especially to help those with disabilities step by step.

While they do not regret their decision, they hope that the situation will improve quickly, especially with more reassuring food stocks, and more important means to improve the daily lives of sick and/or disabled dogs.

 

12. What will the 4000 kg of dog food be used for?

If this collection is successful, the 4000 kg of dog food collected will be distributed to the 75 dogs gathered at Anas and Mira's shelter.
