We cannot let the dogs in Sally's care at the sanctuary and on the streets starve!

Disaster! In Morocco, Sally no longer has enough kibble to feed the countless dogs at the sanctuary and those she cares for on the streets: they're going to starve to death!

Animal Webaction visited the site 26 October 2023 and confirms the situation described below.

1. In Morocco, Sally will soon run out of kibble to feed the countless dogs cared for by her association, both at the sanctuary and on the streets: they will starve if no one intervenes!


"Money is tight right now, making it hard to buy enough kibble for the dogs in the shelter and those living on the streets. I've tried to stretch what kibble I have by giving the dogs smaller portions, but this isn't a good solution. The dogs are getting skinny and weak, and you can see it in their eyes and how they move. Some are even starting to get sick because they don't have the strength to fight off germs.

All this makes it hard to focus on other important rescue work. Finding new homes for the dogs or getting them medical treatment takes a backseat because feeding them is the most urgent issue right now. The saddest part is watching the problems get worse day by day. What's happening now could undo years of effort to help these dogs..."

2. If she can't find any kibble, Sally fears that the weaker dogs will fall seriously ill and become the target of dangerous fights...


"The shortage of kibble is a big problem, affecting the health of the dogs in the sanctuary and on the streets. Some of the dogs are starting to fight over the little food there is. This is dangerous and could lead to injuries. Without enough kibble, parasites like ticks and fleas could also become a major concern. These parasites can make the already weak dogs even weaker. 

The lack of kibble has also made it easier for contagious diseases to spread among the dogs. Even simple sicknesses, the kind that wouldn't be a big deal normally, can become very serious for these frail animals. It's hard to think of all the things that could happen quickly if we don't find a solution.

This campaign is a matter of life and death! If we run out of kibble completely, the dogs could starve to death... This crisis is also emotionally draining for me, making it even harder to find solutions. The risk is real: if things don't change, years of hard work to rescue and care for these dogs could be lost."

3. Seeking partnerships and subsidies, appeals for donations, auctions... Sally has tried everything, but still can't get enough kibble!


"The situation is critical. I've tried buying kibble in large amounts to save money, but it's hard to keep that up with limited funds. I've applied for grants that could help buy more kibble, but funds are still pending. The local government could be a help, but no approach was ever successful and dealing with them takes too much time because of all the  paperwork. 

I also tried to set up charity events, but these didn't bring in much, and auctions of donated items barely made a dent in what's needed. Even making a documentary and talking to the media didn't solve the problem. All of this is slowing down other important rescue activities.

But what weighs most heavily are the lives of the dogs. They rely on me for food, and I'm running out of kibble to give them. The dogs are not just numbers; they have faces, names, and needs. And right now, those needs are not being met. If this continues, I fear that much of the work done to save these animals will unravel. It's a desperate race against time."

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


"The kibble shortage jeopardizes the very existence of the sanctuary. If the dogs don't have kibble, their chances for survival diminish, and that means the sanctuary, their safe space, could close down. On top of that, without enough kibble, it's impossible to provide newly rescued dogs with a stable environment. They come in, scared and hungry, and kibble is the first step in showing them they're safe now.

The shortage also trickles down to how people perceive us. Our public awareness campaigns and social media updates are losing their impact. If we can't show that the dogs are thriving, how can we expect anyone to support us online or think about adoption? Adoptions have stalled because health standards can't be met without a steady kibble supply. The veterinary stations are also wary of extending more credit because we already owe them.

This isn't just about us. It's about the dogs who won't be rescued in the future if we don't figure out the kibble situation now. The dogs are the ones suffering the most, and the clock is ticking."

5. Sally fights against loneliness, isolation and lack of tangible support to defend animals that most people don't seem to care about.


"Taking care of so many dogs day after day is very difficult, but the real struggle is the isolation. Tasks that should be straightforward, like arranging transport or medical care, turn into herculean challenges. It's not just about logistics; it's also the culture here in Morocco that adds layers of difficulty. Stray dogs don't always garner sympathy or support, leaving me to be not just the caregiver but also the fundraiser and advocate. 

The absence of a reliable network magnifies each obstacle. Whether it's coordinating vet visits or raising awareness, I often find myself walking a solitary path. That solitude is made even more pronounced because animal rescue isn't something on most people's radars here. The limited local support means I bear the brunt of each challenge, be it logistical or emotional. 

This isolation isn't just draining; it's a looming threat to the future of these dogs. As each day passes, the monumental tasks mount, and the lack of resources becomes more acute. It's a situation that's escalating, pushing us all closer to a point that none of us can afford to reach."

6. If this campaign succeeds, Sally will not receive any money but 2000 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. 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.

8. 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!
