We cannot let these countless dogs starve!

Disaster! In Morocco, Sally no longer has enough kibble to feed the countless street dogs under her association's care and those at her shelter: they are going to starve!

Animal Webaction visited the site 25 March 2023 and confirms the situation described below.

1. In Morocco, Sally no longer has kibble to feed the countless street dogs her association cares for: they will starve if no one intervenes!


“Thanks to our association’s TNVR (trap, neuter, vaccinate, release) policy, a vast majority of the street dogs are identified, sterilised and free of diseases in the Tangier area. We feed and care for well over 1000 of them, but we've also noticed an increase in the number of new strays: as the economic situation declines, many people struggle to take care of their pets, causing an abandonment surge… 

These dogs entirely rely on us just to survive… Most have been abandoned or neglected, they basically have nowhere and no one else to turn to! We work really hard to keep the street dogs safe and provide them with food, but we need more and more resources to continue doing so and sadly, we’re now out of kibble to feed them. 

It’s an emergency situation for these dogs: among the numerous dangers they face, they struggle to find anything to eat. Although some manage to scavenge for food, it’s often disastrous for their health and puts them in greater danger! If we cannot provide them with kibble, they will move to other, way less dog-friendly, neighbourhoods in search of food. We fear for their safety as culls have started again… we’ll be devastated to lose one of our dogs!”

2. The association's sanctuary also shelters 550 vulnerable dogs, who are not eating enough: they too are threatened by the lack of kibble!  


“We shelter 550 dogs and this huge number is partly due to the fact that we recently took in over 100 endangered street dogs to protect them from mass culls… Although it has allowed us to provide these dogs with better care, it has also strained our resources further… Most of our shelter dogs are fragile and suffer from severe health conditions involving high vet expenses...  

Besides, our financial difficulties have affected the amount of food we can provide. Our current kibble supply will only last a couple more days, at best… The lack of funding prevents us from buying some more and forces us to cut back on the dogs’ portions to try and manage our meagre remaining kibble stock as best as possible. My priority is our dogs’ health and well-being…

Sadly, they aren’t eating enough... Without adequate nutrition, they will become malnourished, weak, and more susceptible to illness and injury… Additionally, they’re overcrowded, which makes it worse for them; they’re anxious, tense and even aggressive… I’m scared the lack of kibble will have long-term consequences on both their physical and mental health!”

3. Tonguey is suffering from severe side-effects caused by a very serious infection: diminished and weak, he won’t be able to cope with a lack of kibble...  


“Tonguey is a three-year-old male who’s been at the shelter for 6 months… He suffers from the after-effects of the canine distemper disease, a dangerous virus which has left his tongue permanently sticking out of his mouth. Life on the streets is too risky for him and after he got bitten by another street dog, I decided to take him and keep him at the shelter. Indeed, he is a very nice dog but his disability doesn’t allow him to fit in any of the street dogs’ packs. 

Besides, although he’s recovered from the disease, his immune system has been weakened and now, he tends to get sick quite easily, so we have to be particularly careful about his state of health and make sure he eats enough. He’s among our most fragile dogs and that’s why I’m concerned about him - he would be among the first to be severely impacted by a kibble shortage.”

4. The association lacks funds and is too indebted to buy any more kibble: Sally desperately needs this campaign to succeed for the dogs! 


“It's a constant struggle to provide kibble and medical care for all the dogs… We have accumulated outstanding debts for kibble supply and vetcare, which is a constant source of stress. Besides, with the recent influx of new rescue dogs, we owe a month's worth of kibble to the supplier - if we cannot pay them back soon, we won't be allowed to take more kibble on credit until we pay our previous debts! We even had to cut back on some necessary expenses, such as some treatments, which worries me deeply. It's not just a financial issue, but a moral one as well! 

Donations have been fluctuating lately and we have been struggling to fundraise due to the current state of the economy. We are so grateful for any support we get, but it's just not enough to meet our dogs’ increasing needs and to continue our rescue operations. The lack of kibble for our dogs is an extremely urgent issue and we’ve tried everything to solve it so far… This campaign is really our last chance and if it fails, it will be very difficult for us to continue rescuing and rehabilitating more dogs in need…”

5. Sally isn't asking for money, only kibble to prevent the dogs from starving.


“Our rescue is a safe haven for animals in need, where they can receive proper care, nourishment and medical treatment. I measure our impact by the number of dogs we manage to rescue and get adopted… However, there are misconceptions about animal rescue work, such as the belief that it's easy and glamorous. In reality, it's emotionally and physically draining, challenging, and requires a lot of dedication and hard work! I wouldn't be able to take care of my babies without my amazing team and incredible volunteers. They help me a lot and I am very grateful they do! 

We’re so essential here, there are still too many stray dogs in our area who are constantly at risk of dying, starving, getting mistreated or culled… It’s far from being easy, but what keeps me motivated is seeing the transformation in the dogs we rescue, their joy after being saved. Our impact is huge on both animals and people; we’re so honoured to be able to educate the community about animal welfare and responsible pet ownership! It is crucial for people to support our actions, as it makes a significant difference in the dogs' existence. Without help, it would be impossible for us to continue saving these lives! "

6. If this campaign succeeds, Sally will not receive any money but 3000 kg of kibble, delivered from Animal Webaction's logistics centre in Morocco.

Animal Webaction has a logistics centre in Morocco, which allows us to intervene quickly and deliver kibble.

7. Sally’s supporters and community have done all they could but now, her last resort to feed the dogs lies on this campaign!

“We have been fortunate enough to receive support from some incredible organisations: the Brigitte Bardot foundation has been helping us for years with sterilisation campaigns, while Animal Webaction has also supported us on multiple occasions, which we are incredibly grateful for… Our online fundraising is vital to our funding strategy, but it's not enough to fix the kibble shortage we're currently facing. We need any type of support from the community, so that we can address this issue urgently.

I want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who will keep on supporting our rescue efforts. Your donations, time, and resources have been critical to our ability to provide shelter, kibble, and medical care to the abandoned dogs in our care. It’s a powerful reminder that together, we can make a difference in the lives of animals in need. Remember that with each life saved, humanity is saved!”

8. Campaigns launched on Animal Webaction often fail...

Liste des récoltes échouées

When a campaign fails, Animal Webaction cannot deliver the products. The beneficiary doesn't receive anything and the buyers are refunded.

9. In Morocco, donors are scarce, and there are no foundations or subsidies. It is very difficult to find funding for kibble, many dogs remain starving on the street!
