"The stock of kibble is dwindling fast, and I only have enough left to feed the dogs for two days. I'm forced to reduce portions to try and stretch the remaining stock a little longer, but I can see it's not enough. The dogs are already showing signs of hunger, tensions are rising and fights are breaking out...
This shortage is also having a serious impact on my ability to help other animals. I'm forced to close the doors of the shelter to any new arrivals, knowing that I won't be able to offer them what they need. There simply isn't enough kibble to take them under my wing... This reality is as hard on me as it is on the poor dogs I have to turn away.
My dogs' survival is threatened. The prospect of seeing them suffer, of not being able to feed them, haunts me. These animals depend entirely on me, on what I can offer them. It worries me to see them a little weaker every day, to know they are at the mercy of an uncertain tomorrow, with bowls that could remain desperately empty if this campaign fails..."
"The health of the dogs at the shelter is on a knife edge. Kibble is in short supply and I can see the dogs getting dangerously weak. Some are already starting to lose weight and their energy levels are dropping. Without the necessary kibble, their chances of regaining their health are diminishing... I'm very worried for those who are already ill; they may not be able to bear the lack of kibble for long!
The lack of kibble is also transforming the atmosphere in the shelter, creating competition for available resources. Where there used to be a semblance of order, the tension is now mounting. Dogs, guided by their survival instincts, fight over portions that are shrinking by the day. The hardiest impose themselves, leaving the most vulnerable with little or nothing.
Without this delivery of kibble, the fights that are already a danger could become more frequent, more violent. The weakest run the risk of being dominated, pushed aside, never able to get enough to eat. And the shelter, which should be a haven of peace, risks becoming a place where tension reigns, where rivalry for survival eclipses the tranquility I strive to provide..."
"I've knocked on every door, soliciting friends and family for donations of kibble, but the responses are few and far between. Appeals on social media for help in finding food have gone unanswered, and donations from private individuals, when they have been forthcoming, are far from covering the shelter's daily needs. Even the search for sponsors and subsidies to ensure the purchase of kibble has come to nothing; no company has reached out, and government aid is non-existent.
Despite my determination and tireless efforts, the funds raised have not led to the purchase of sufficient kibble. Day after day, the bowls grow lighter and lighter, and the eyes of my four-legged companions grow darker and darker. The reality is there, tangible and worrying: without a reliable source of kibble, my shelter may no longer be able to protect them from hunger..."
"The absence of kibble weighs heavily, making my efforts to care for and protect these vulnerable beings almost futile. Every decision I make, every care I provide is subject to the merciless condition of the kibble supply. The imperative to find kibble governs my days, which have become a continuous battle against the looming shortage.... Every day, I have to choose how best to use the limited resources we have, and this affects everything: without them, I can't look after the dogs properly or ensure their well-being.
Without kibble, the very functioning of the shelter is compromised, our resources diverted, our attentions diverted from other essential needs. Our past successes, every rescue, every moment of respite offered to a dog, risk being reduced to nothing if the bowls remain empty. Worse still, without the guarantee of a stable diet, the future of these dogs becomes uncertain, and their chances of adoption diminish... All these dogs rely on me for their survival, and without kibble, I fear for their future!"
"I face a difficult daily life. Every day is a reminder of my responsibility to the abandoned dogs who depend on me for their survival. There's no shortage of challenges, and I often feel alone in this mission. But it's a cause that's close to my heart, and I'm totally committed to it.
At times, I feel heavy-handed and powerless in the face of difficulties. However, my determination to protect these dogs gives me the strength I need to carry on. The love and trust these animals show me are powerful motivators. Despite the obstacles and a certain sadness that sometimes touches me, I draw from my commitment the will to persevere. It's this bond with the dogs that keeps me going, even when the Moroccan context makes things more difficult."
