Animal Webaction visited the site 02 June 2023 and confirms the situation described below.
“At this moment, I'm caring for 181 dogs at the shelter. This number has been on the rise, as I recently rescued helpless disabled dogs and puppies I found on the streets… I couldn't leave them to fend for themselves, they would have never survived, knowing there are still cullings being organised! So, the shelter’s definitely running low on space... and kibble.
I’ve run out of the kibble from the previous Animal Webaction campaign two days ago and barely managed to get some more on credit, which won’t last long… especially if I rescue more endangered dogs! It's a desperate time, and the increasing prices due to inflation aren't helping... The rise in cost of essentials, like gas, transportation, and kibble, is adding to the burden.
The weight of the debt, the scarcity of resources and low donations make me feel like I can't handle it all anymore: I’m so overwhelmed with the financial stress and the heavy worry about the dogs going hungry… It’s absolutely crucial for my dogs' survival that this campaign succeeds!”
“I have to cut back on kibble to save as much of what’s left as possible…It's only a matter of days before this lack of nutrition affects the shelter's most fragile dogs. Most of them were rescued from the streets, they have experienced traumatic situations, some even narrowly escaped atrocious deaths... They are survivors!
The street dogs’ life has definitely not improved… I take care of six strays, trying my best to keep them fed. In addition to hunger, street dogs face neglect, harassment and attacks daily… Besides, the authorities still organise mass culls to get rid of them! Not long ago, I managed to rescue in extremis a dog who was a victim of these brutal cullings - he was shot in the legs!
With so many dogs recovering and needing my help, it’s vital that I get kibble… But I don't have the means to build up a sustainable stock, otherwise I wouldn't need this campaign! If this campaign fails, my dogs will very rapidly experience starvation… I’m not the one who needs this campaign to succeed, they are - it’s all about keeping them alive!”
“I found Blanco a month ago, on the streets. He’s 2 years old and his history is unknown to me, but based on the injuries on his body, I can only assume he had a car accident...
Despite all the care, Blanco's health is unpredictable. It's stable at times, but it can also get really bad, especially considering his injury, which sometimes worsens… I’m very worried...
Blanco’s overall health and survival are heavily dependent on kibble… Getting kibble isn’t an option but a necessity to him - it’s crucial he gets proper, adequate nutrition to have a chance to recover and make it!”
“I mostly finance kibble out of my own pocket... But lately, I've had to take on debt to keep the dogs fed; I'm resorting to debt more and more often to meet their needs. I have no alternative, my resources are stretched thin, donations are continuously dropping, my own funds aren't enough…
As a result, I’m falling short for kibble, rent, and everything else. This has only pushed me into more debts (at the vet, the kibble supplier…) and it makes it nearly impossible to provide for all the dogs on my own!
This campaign's success isn't just about reducing my debts. It's about ensuring my dogs don't go hungry, about giving me some peace of mind... and about allowing me to continue doing my actions!”
“The work I do is tough, especially doing it all alone, while running the association... There's always a need for more hands! Not many step up for these abandoned dogs, so I end up doing it - it's my duty! My actions and the shelter are usually well-received locally. I'm even starting to see people becoming more sensitive to animal welfare, but there's still a long way to go!
I’m proud to take care of all the dogs in the shelter, particularly the older ones. It's not just about finding them homes, but the right homes. Yet, I yearn for more: to rescue more dogs, to get more people involved. Running the shelter is rewarding but also challenging, I wish I had more space to rescue more dogs… it weighs heavy on my heart knowing they’re so many out there!
Being the sole caretaker is overwhelming. There are moments when I can't help but overthink if I can continue helping dogs all by myself… The difficulties around the kibble issue and the uncertainty of having enough for the dogs brings a lot of stress, disappointment, and sadness. ”
Animal Webaction has a logistics centre in Morocco which allows us to intervene quickly and deliver kibble throughout the country.
“Right now, I don't have any partnerships with other organisations. I'm using the association’s Facebook group as the main platform to call for donations and raise money for kibble. But if I could afford the rent, pay my workers, and buy enough kibble on my own, I wouldn't be reaching out again through this Animal Webaction campaign!
Kibble represents a huge budget daily and managing all of the shelter’s expenses and responsibilities is pushing me to my limits… Insufficient resources and the constant scarcity of kibble are my most recurrent struggles.
My mission, my motivation, has always been to alleviate the dogs’ suffering. But no matter how strong my determination is, I'm only one person… I need help - please, remember that this campaign will directly benefit dogs in need!”
