Animal Webaction visited the site 14 July 2023 and confirms the situation described below.
"I am currently taking care of 181 dogs at my shelter. I constantly face ongoing challenges such as limited space, scarce resources, kibble shortage, and now I am confronted with a critical new issue, as our well is broken. The lack of donations only exacerbate these issues. Unfortunately the situation is progressively deteriorating, and it is deeply troubling for me.
My main concern revolves around ensuring that my dogs do not go hungry and that I can continue to provide for them independently for as long as possible. But it’s not always easy. Due to the depletion of kibble, I have been forced to reduce the amount of food provided to the dogs. I currently lack the necessary means to sustain their food supply for more than a few days, and it's a distressing situation.
If this campaign fails, it will result in the dogs going hungry. It's as simple as that. I experience a deep sense of disappointment and a feeling of being constricted, as if I am backed into a corner. However, I firmly embrace the motto of never giving up until I have exhausted all my resources, until the very last minute."
"The number of dogs remains the same due to ongoing issues of limited space and insufficient resources. I am unable to extend my help further due to the circumstances. The lack of awareness regarding dogs in our society persists, and unfortunately, the situation remains unchanged.
The success of this collection is absolutely crucial as it directly impacts the well-being of my dogs, ensuring they never suffer from hunger. I cannot bear the thought of watching my dogs starve, and if things continue to deteriorate, I may be forced to make the difficult decision to release them. However, just the idea of this breaks my heart, and it's something I find incredibly challenging to contemplate.
In tough situations like these, tough decisions are sometimes necessary. Nevertheless, I refuse to give up until I have exhausted every possible avenue to provide for them."
"Mali unfortunately lost a leg in a car accident, and had nowhere to go following this incident, as there is no dog shelter where she got injured. I got contacted and took her in my shelter nearly a year ago.
She is now in a stable condition, but due to her accident Mali remains weakened, and unable to fend for herself should she have to. She requires both shelter and kibble to stay alive."
"Unfortunately, there have been no recent positive changes. The water issue has further increased my expenses as we have been purchasing water to cope, the amount of water required to sustain and clean for my 181 dogs is the heat of the summer is quite daunting...
I mostly fund everything on my own, and it's becoming increasingly challenging to cope with the situation. I'm afraid I am reaching a breaking point. I currently owe nearly 1000€ to my food provider, and I am struggling to manage this debt, I am unsure of how I will be able to repay this, but the dogs in my shelter are at risk of going hungry if I can’t find kibble for them.
Our shelter is the only one in the area, and these dogs depend on us for their well-being. It's crucial for us to provide a safe haven for them."
"My love for animals came from my grandfather, who had a passion for raising various kinds of animals. Growing up in his presence and being surrounded by animals, I naturally formed a deep attachment to them. Over time, this attachment grew into a profound sense of empathy and a strong desire to protect and care for them.
As I continued to mature, this feeling intensified, which lead me to make the decision to establish a shelter dedicated to helping and safeguarding animals in need. I feel a strong sense of responsibility to rescue and help these abandoned dogs. Just imagine if they were still on the streets, especially considering the authorities' practice of eliminating street dogs.
Progress has been made in raising awareness about animal welfare issues, but there is still a long way to go. While I have observed some small changes in people's attitudes, more individuals need to become aware and actively involved in addressing these concerns."
Animal Webaction has a logistics centre in Morocco which allows us to intervene quickly and deliver kibble throughout the country.
"I still use our group on Facebook as my main platform and method to call for help, but donations have been constantly decreasing, and I didn't receive any last month. This is mainly because of inflation and a lack of awareness among people about helping animals. Inflation is a widespread problem that affects everyone, making it difficult to extend assistance as much as before.
July is usually a month when I expect some smaller donations, but I was shocked to find none. It's been tough during these challenging times when I really need help, but I haven't received any so far. Sometimes the stress I experience becomes overwhelming and unbearable.
The issue of providing kibble for the dogs is an ongoing challenge since they need to eat consistently. While I do my best to help and seek assistance, it is clear that additional support is necessary. As the founder of an association dedicated to rescuing street dogs in Tetouan, I heavily rely on the assistance of others to fulfill our mission."
