Donate with trust: Animal Webaction has been on site and checked the truthfulness of everything presented in the action.

In Morocco, this shelter is completely full, there will soon be no kibble left for its 150 dogs, the most fragile will not survive!

Made aware of the situation, we went to the shelter a few days ago to meet Elise who is fighting to save these dogs.

The shelter is now forced to refuse new dogs, due to its lack of place and fundings.

In Morocco, for lack of resources, animals remain to die in the street!

We want to send 3,000 kg of kibble as soon as possible to allow the shelter to continue its fight!

100% transparency guaranteed


1. We went to the shelter : soon, the animals will be out of kibble!

Recently reported to the volunteers, Nyx suffers from a very advanced skin disease, which covers 90% of her body.... Her immune system is very weak and her treatment only started a few days ago, the food she receives is essential for her recovery


Of the 150 dogs hosted at the shelter, about 50 are in poor health, often due to the abuse and malnutrition they have experienced in the past. A lack of kibble would be dramatic for them!


During our visit, there were 600 kg of kibbles left in the storage room: 60 kg are needed every day to feed the 150 dogs hosted at the shelter. In 10 days, all the kibbles will have been used


Made aware of the difficulties encountered by the shelter, we went there on April 20th. With 150 dogs currently hosted, 60 kg of kibbles are needed every day: a very significant amount for the volunteers, who struggle to finance on a continuous basis.

During our visit, there were only 600 kg of kibble left on the spot: enough to feed all the dogs until the end of the month only...



2. The shelter is already full, it no longer has the means to rescue street animals, in Morocco many animals stay to die on the street




Although they no longer have any free space at the shelter, volunteers are constantly called upon for new rescues, and endless abandonments....


"Currently the shelter is very crowded because there are too many abandonments and cases that we can't leave out [....] We have to refuse to take care of other animals, people don't always understand but we have to think about those who are already there," says Elise.

Overwhelmed, the UMPA shelter has reached a stage where it can only refuse to accept new animals. The shelter is full, while the resources are empty! 

However, there is no shortage of animals in distress on the streets of Morocco: what will happen to them if the association can no longer help them?




3. Victim of a fire on April 10th, the shelter suffered heavy damage: the repair costs are very high, expenses had to be carried out urgently, there is no money left for kibble!

Devastated by the damage caused by the fire, Elise launched appeals for donations: the repair costs amount to about 5000€.


In addition to the 150 dogs, the association also hosts other animals, including about forty equines. No animals were injured in the fire, but the newly renewed forage stock was completely burnt, as was the stable where it was stored.



No repairs could be made before our visit. In emergency, the association has bought fodder for the horses, but isn't sure about the next step for now



4. If the target isn't reached, dogs won't receive any food

A failed collection on Animal Webaction


We can come into action, we have already booked a truck and pallets, but we have to pay it before April 27th.

If the collection fails, we will not be able to pay, the departure of the truck will be cancelled and none of the collected kibbles will be delivered...

If this fails, we will refund all donors



5. The shelter is full, misfortunes follow one another: Elise tries her best to go over this rough patch



Thrown out on the street by his master because he had scabies, Jezzi is currently being treated at the shelter



Ten-year-old Rita was thrown over the wall of the shelter only a few weeks ago, in very precarious physical condition


Found on the street, Flina was brought to the shelter recently, scared and thin. She is being treated by the shelter team, and will soon be neutered



With a genital tumor, Wanda had to undergo a long surgery, as well as several chemotherapy sessions in April


Cared for after suffering violent abuse, and Olmes spent most of his life in the shelter... he died a few weeks ago


Tara suffered from a tumor and was too old to be able to have surgery: she died on March 19th




6. Especially fragile, they need us to help them 

A survivor of a dog track in which he was abandoned, Sony is currently very weak: suffering from bronchitis, he's been losing weight and is being followed very closely


Raised for breeding, Wanda developed a genital tumour: after surgery, she underwent several sessions of chemotherapy in April


Extremely skinny when he arrived at the shelter, Nicolas has only been there for a few months. Like all his fellow dogs from the dog track, his health remains fragile and Nicolas is under constant monitoring


Rescued from the public pound four years ago, Bella has been at the shelter ever since. Recently, the scabies she was suffering from has reappeared: her treatment is in progress, and her diet is highly important for it to succeed



Rex now has to walk on three legs: injured in an accident in the left hind leg, he had to be amputated. Also suffering from scabies, he is still under treatment



Following a serious accident, Samy suffered a double fracture of the hind leg: amputation could not be avoided



Velma was suffering from a broken shoulder, skin disease and extreme thinness when she joined the shelter only a few months ago



Cooky was one of the last dogs to survive the dog track: he suffered from extreme malnutrition and scabies for many months. Stabilized, his health remains fragile



Sisi was only 3 months old when she was rescued last year: she is still young, and needs kibble!


Before being taken to the shelter, Loloo lived on the street: she owes her survival only to Elise



7. The association provides free care for 3,000 animals each year. Without kibbles, its activities are threatened!

Seriously wounded by a knife during an attempted robbery, this dog was lucky enough to be treated at the dispensary. Unfortunately, knife wounds are frequent, and too expensive to be treated by pet owners at a clinic....


Affected by distemper, this little puppy was treated at the UMPA dispensary. Its owners, like many others, would not have been able to afford to pay for consultation and treatment in a veterinary clinic


The actions of the UMPA dispensary are not limited to emergency care: vaccination, sterilization, deworming... They improve the lives of thousands of animals every day, and actively participate in the control of wandering populations and the prevention of diseases


In addition to gathering hundreds of animals (dogs, but also cats and horses), the association also acts as a dispensary for the population. The poorest people can have their animals treated free of charge by UMPA, which takes care of everything.

These actions make it possible to limit animal suffering, but also abandonment, and ensure control over the population of stray animals: by offering the possibility to spay / neuter animals free of charge, the association avoids the multiplication of unwanted litters. 

Without kibbles, all this could disappear!  "If we don't do this care, it's dogs we find on the street."




8. No association helps them on an ongoing basis: 60% of the costs are paid by volunteers


The association receives an extremely valuable municipal grant, which allows it to cover 40% of its expenses. But 60% of the operating costs are still paid by volunteers today! Not to mention the expenses of several thousand euros related to the April fire, which none of them could have anticipated

Only two foreign associations have provided assistance in the past: occasional, and reserved for rescue or sterilisation actions: "Animals live  for years after being rescued, no one wants to pay for their maintenance"


9. Volunteers bend under the weight of the loads


The association has very few people who take care of everything: only three volunteers work in the field, employees are needed. Its President, a veterinarian by profession, performs the surgical operations on a voluntary basis, but everything else is at his expense: medicines, vaccines, food, etc...

Market stalls, partnerships with suppliers and carriers: volunteers try to reduce costs as much as possible. They also take care of debts with their personal money, some of them for 25 years.

With dogs being abandonned over and over again, and ever-increasing medical costs, they can no longer do it! 


10. Rejected and exterminated, Moroccan street dogs live on probation

On social networks, animal advocates try to alert when new killings take place, in order to protect as many dogs as possible


With an estimated population of around 2 million street dogs, Morocco has been carrying out mass slaughter operations at regular intervals for decades.

Dogs are poisoned with strychnine, or shot with a gun, usually in the spring: before the arrival of tourists, or any other important international event.

Although sterilisation programs have already been carried out in some Moroccan cities: unfortunately, they have so far always been abandoned, as their fruits take too long to bear fruit....


11. Elise, dedicated body and soul for 25 years

Elise and some of the greyhounds rescued by the shelter


Elise's involvement in the association dates back 25 years, when she was asked to give bread or leftovers for the animals in the shelter. Since then, she goes there every day to take care of them, and also ensures the search for food, the running of the stands, the interventions for rescue etc....

"This shelter, like all other shelters, is a place where animals can finally rest, without suffering or pain, to recover from what they have experienced. We try to give them happiness."

Already close to closure a few years ago, the shelter was saved thanks to the determination of Elise and a few others, a determination she keeps today: 

"Ten years ago, the shelter came close to closing. We fought, we held out, we are proud that the shelter is still there today and that it is as it is. Every year, we care for between 2800 and 3000 animals for the poor: they will be left unassisted if we have to close. Poor people need help to keep their animals, veterinary care is very, very expensive."



12. What will the 3000 kg of kibble be used for ?

If the collection succeeds, the 3000 kg collected will be used to feed the 150 dogs hosted at the UMPA shelter.
