1. In Morocco, Anne will soon run out of kibble to feed the 150 street cats cared for by her association. They will starve if no one intervenes!

###

"Myself and volunteers take care of more than 150 street cats in various neigbhorhoods of Azemmour. Our association focuses on sterilizing and feeding strays, that are constantly more numerous. Many people continue to refuse sterilizing their cats, but abandon each litter of kittens born!

The cycle of abandonment and suffering continues while we are reaching a breaking point. The crisis has left many people without income, which in turn lead us to experience a massive drop in donations. Our resources are used up and we can no longer buy kibbles. Right now we only have enough kibble for a couple of days only.

If we don't find a solution soon, the cats will starve to death... I fear for them and feel great despair. I don't want to see them die and become fragile in front of my eyes without me being able to help them... My only hope is this collection!"

2. At only 2 months old, Fahd has already known abandonment and sickness. Weak and vulnerable, he will not make it without kibble.

###

"Fahd is a 2-month-old male, he is an unwanted kitten who was dumped on the street. He contracted Coryza (an acute inflammatory contagious disease involving the respiratory tract) which is starting to complicate and causes his eyes to crust over and pop out of his head.

Honestly, he would have died if we had not spotted him. He is now under treatment but remains extremely vulnerable, he is shy, fearful, and always looks scared.

We are very worried about him. He is more frail than others and needs kibbles now more than ever otherwise he could starve to death!"

3. Anne's shelters are also home to 150 cats, who are already not eating enough. If no solution is found, they too are threatened!

"We constructed 2 shelters on a piece of land that is adjacent to the rubbish tip in Azemmour. We have around 150 cats there at the moment. In this location as well, the number of cats is increasing day by day. People usually choose to abandon cats and kittens directly at the rubbish tip, thinking it'll be easier for the cats to feed themselves from the bins... This irresponsible behavior is absolutely heartbreaking.

We take the dumped cats and take care of them to the best of our ability, but the lack of kibble is really affecting us. The cats do not eat enough, especially the sick ones who need double the serving size of what a normal cat would eat. If we don't find kibble soon, we fear cats will get sicker, which would eventually lead to a very high mortality rate. The slighest infection could cost them their lives...

They can’t survive without good quality food. I am feeling stressed, worried and overwhelmed about the situation, I fear for the cats' well-being. My shelter and my cats need your help to survive!"

4. Masoud was thrown at the rubbish tip when he was only two months old. Weakened by a disease and very thin, he will not survive without kibble.

###

"Masoud was dumped at the rubbish tip as a 2-month-old kitten, we've been taking care of him even since, for around 3 months. His story is unfortunately far from unique, so many kittens get dumped here, it makes me so angry!!

Masoud caught the flu, he now seems to be over that but remains very fragile, he is for one extremely thin. We treated him for parasites and fleas in case he has a tape worm but despite that, he can't seem to put on weight.

He's very affectionate towards humans, he likes to be around us. He's just a tiny kitten who deserves to be loved and he needs good food, his state will otherwise deteriorate and he might not survive."

5. With falling donations, no subsidies and a depleted personal budget, Anne can no longer buy kibble.

###

"We don't get any government help. All the actions are carried out with my own money and donations. Unfortunately,  the situation has gradually worsen since the start of the pandemic. We have lost some donors because of personal financial challenges (loss of a job, loss of income..). 

Our donations have sharply decreased and people have also stopped adopting due to travel restrictions. My personal budget is unfortunately no longer sufficient to support our actions, given the increasing number of cats in need. 

We need support to continue feeding street cats, to help us to hold on. I really hope that people become more conscious and that we can obtain more help, the cats desperately need it!"

6. Anne isn't asking for money, only kibble to keep the cats from starving!

###

"ERHAM (Effective Rescue to Help Azemmour’s Moggies) means ‘take pity’ in Arabic and that’s the message we are spreading throughout the town to help the cats an kittens. Street cats here face trauma and abuse, and with our association, we seek to end their suffering.

Our work is essential because we are the only ones who take care of the cats in our neighbourhoods. We also raise awareness about sterilisation to prevent cats from breeding. Over the years, we've managed to sterilize over 1200 cats, it's wonderful to see so many clipped ears on our feeding rounds!

Despite our efforts, sometimes it feels like an endless cycle because people keep abandoning unsterilized pets...In order to continue, we really need more people to start supporting our actions!"

7. If this campaign succeeds, Anne will not receive any money but 1140 kg of kibbles, delivered from Animal Webaction's logistics platform in Morocco.

Animal Webaction has a logistics platform in Morocco, which enables us to intervene quickly and deliver kibbles.

8. With no response from foundations and international organisations, Anne struggles with depleted fundraisings... She counts on this campaign to get kibble.

"Our resources are used up, we can no longer buy kibble. We have already tried online fundraising but that doesn't work like it used to, unfortunately, especially because people can’t afford to donate due to the crisis.

I tried to reach out to other organizations but they can’t help me with kibbles because they don’t ship to Morocco... The government doesn't help either... This campaign truly is my last hope to feed the cats!"

9. Campaigns launched on Animal Webaction often fail.

When a campaign fails, Animal Webaction cannot deliver the collected products, the beneficiary receives nothing and the buyers get a refund...

10. In Morocco, donors are scarce, and there are no foundations or subsidies . It is very difficult to find funding for kibbles, many cats remain starving in the street!
