Animal Webaction visited the site 27 June 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!


"In recent times, we've seen an increase in the number of stray dogs due to abandonment, which has led to a deterioration in living conditions at feeding sites. All these dogs face many difficulties: illnesses, accidents, mistreatment by humans...  And to make matters worse, there have also been recent culls in Tangier!

Unfortunately, our kibbble stock has run out about three weeks ago, and we haven't yet been able to replenish it. Street dogs are forced to venture into unfamiliar areas in search of food, making do with what they can find in garbage cans, and leftovers of all kinds... While some manage to find enough to survive to some extent, many struggle to find enough to sustain themselves. And in any case, the 'garbage' diet is terribly bad for everyone!

The current shortage of kibble has an immediate impact on the well-being and safety of stray dogs. The situation is particularly worrying, and the current sweltering heat in Tangier is only making matters worse... Dogs are all the more vulnerable to the risks of dehydration and disease! The success of this campaign is crucial, it's the only way street dogs will receive the kibble they need to survive!"

2. Luna has a leg injury... she needs urgent care and won't be able to recover without kibble!


"Luna is a stray dog who lives around Ba Kacem beach. When we last met, I noticed that she was showing signs of discomfort on her right front paw. She's clearly in pain... I think she's been hit by a car. She needs immediate care to relieve her pain and avoid further complications.

If we can't establish a new supply of kibble, her recovery will be impossible! Care only works if the animal can eat its fill, and eat properly... Prolonged malnutrition will permanently compromise her immune system, making her even more vulnerable to infection and disease. Luna really needs this delivery of kibble to be able to survive and recover!"

3. The association's sanctuary also shelters 650 vulnerable dogs, who are not eating enough: they too are threatened by the lack of kibble!  


"Currently, we have 650 dogs in our shelter, which is higher than usual. The reason for this increase is that we have taken proactive measures to bring in some of our tagged dogs from the streets, as we feared they would be culled... Given our limited resources, the sheer volume of dogs presents a challenge in ensuring that each one receives an optimal amount of food. It pains me to admit this, but we have been forced to reduce the amount of kibble provided at the shelter...

The dogs are not getting enough to eat, and we only have a few bags of kibble left, which will barely last a week. Additionally, our limited kibble stock has compelled us to be more selective in the rescue operations we can undertake, prioritizing the most critical and urgent cases only. As a result, some deserving dogs who also require our care and attention have to wait longer for the assistance they need... It is truly disheartening.

Without the success of this campaign, the consequences for the dogs at our shelter will be deeply concerning. They rely solely on us for their daily nourishment and care, and our situation is becoming increasingly precarious. We need all the help we can get to be able to feed them!"

4. Constrained by limited resources and an inflationary context, Sally can no longer buy kibble for her dogs!


"Inflation has had a significant impact on our ability to provide for the dogs in our care. The increase in prices (kibble, supplies and medical care) has led to a drop in our purchasing power. Procuring kibble for the hundreds of dogs who depend on us is becoming increasingly laborious, and this is unfortunately far from being our only difficulty!

Due to financial limitations, we have also had to reduce the number of sterilizations we can carry out, greatly delaying our progress in solving the problem of overpopulation. Our ability to provide timely medical treatment and care for the dogs has also been impacted...

To be perfectly honest, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the task ahead. The idea that these magnificent creatures are starving, that we can't meet their basic needs, breaks my heart. We're constantly having to beg for the most essential things for our dogs, and despite our best efforts, the requests to take them in are ever more numerous... I'm deeply attached to my dogs' well-being and it pains me not to be able to provide them with everything they need, starting with kibble..."

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


"Our mission isn't just about rescuing individual dogs; it's about making a difference in their lives and in the lives of the community! We believe that every dog deserves a chance to be happy and loved, and we strive to create a world where abandonment and neglect become a thing of the past. To do this, we focus on education and public awareness. I firmly believe that knowledge is the key to transforming perceptions. By fostering a better understanding of the issues at stake, we hope to inspire greater compassion and empathy among individuals towards the animal cause.

However, we understand that it takes time and perseverance to change deeply rooted beliefs.  For example, it's disheartening to see that stray dogs are still slaughtered in Tangier. We understand that fear of rabies and public safety concerns can lead to misguided actions, but it's important to address these issues through education and responsible animal management practices. The slaughter of dogs is a tragic and painful outcome that could definitely be avoided...

To answer these questions and bring about lasting change, we believe that the TNVR (capture-sterilization-vaccination-release) method is the only way forward. It's the only way to manage the stray dog population humanely, while respecting their territorial dynamics. We remain optimistic and hope that we'll live long enough to see a real evolution in society on these issues. On a daily basis, we see more and more people taking responsibility for their animals and defending their well-being, it's these small victories that keep us hopeful!"

6. If this campaign succeeds, Sally will not receive any money but 2400 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. The association's supporters are doing their utmost, but the dogs' needs are too great... Sally won't be able to feed them without this campaign!

"We are fortunate to benefit from the support of a number of foreign foundations, who help us to raise funds on a more or less regular basis. But while we deeply appreciate the generosity and assistance we receive from various sources, there is always a considerable gap between the funds available to us, and the funds actually needed to effectively support our operations. 

It's also worth noting that summer is a difficult time for us. Rising temperatures can lead to an upsurge in health problems in dogs, requiring extra care, medication and treatment. Adoptions are also interrupted at this time, due to the high cost of flights. As much as I'd like to be able to manage everything myself, the reality is that the scale of the work and the number of animals in need is more than I can handle on my own. We have a lot of dogs in our care, a lot of mouths to feed and without more support, we won't make it!"

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

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!
