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

This Moroccan shelter will soon be out of kibble, 120 dogs will starve to death!

We went to the shelter on August 1, following a distress call.

On site, we met very fragile dogs, who fight every day to survive.

The shelter is overwhelmed by the massive arrival of dogs, and has used up its food stock much faster than expected!

Without our intervention, there will be no food left on August 12.

We would like to send 2000 kg of kibble to the shelter as a matter of urgency. The Moroccan kibble carrier will close in a few days for its annual leave, which leaves very little time for a successful collection.

100% transparency guaranteed

 

1. Several dogs have already died, and there will soon be nothing left to feed the survivors

$$$
Found poisoned in the street this week, this dog was rescued by the association, but neither its efforts nor the treatments received were sufficient, he died at the clinic on August 2

 

$$$
Abandoned and emaciated, Slogui was also rescued and immediately taken care of by the veterinarian. Despite long treatments, he failed to recover and died last month of a severe anemia

 

###
Rescued only two weeks ago, Rahal was starving and dying of thirst in the streets. He hasn't had enough time to recover yet

 

###
On his own in the street, Nassim has contracted scabies and was emaciated before he arrived at the shelter two weeks ago. He is still under treatment and remains very fragile, his body will not tolerate a food shortage

 

###
With a congenital malformation, Mimoun was found on the street, skinny and thirsty, and also suffering from scabies. Mimoun is only 4 months old, 2 of them spent in the shelter, he remains very fragile

 

The association's shelter, commonly known as a "convalescent centre", mainly accommodates abused, sick, abandoned or dying dogs. All of them are cared for by a veterinarian when they arrive at the centre, they are in a state of extreme fragility, and need an adapted diet to have a chance to survive.

 

 

2. In 10 days, there will be no kibble left at the shelter

###
900 kg of kibble, that's all that was left when we visited on August 1st, enough to feed the dogs in the shelter for only 11 days!

 

Last April, the Animal Webaction community got together to send 3000 kg of food to the dogs at the shelter, who were then only eating rice.

But the stock sent will be exhausted by August 12, Hind has no prospect of being able to renew it: "We cannot buy the food our own. I used to bring chicken carcasses and rice, but it’s not sufficient, and even that is expensive for me. If the collection doesn’t work, we will stop saving dogs’ lives. We just cannot handle it" she explained with regret during our visit on August 1st.

 

 

3. In a matter of months, the number of dogs at the shelter more than doubled, using the kibble up faster than expected. Hind is overwhelmed

###
Scared and about to lose her puppies, Yassmine was taken to the shelter only a month ago. Today, she and her 7 puppies who survived live there, if Yasmine can no longer eat, she will no longer be able to breastfeed them, all are in danger!

 

###
Suffering from eye problems, Max was also starving and often abused; Hind intervened to rescue him only 3 months ago

 

###
Very sick and weak, Lucky would not have survived without the shelter's intervention in July

 

###
Abandoned, Wolf was suffering from scabies, starving and thirsty when Hind rescued him. He has had sequelae to an eye from an old injury, but has managed to heal from scabies since he arrived at the shelter 4 months ago

 

During our last collection in April, Hind hosted 50 dogs, she now has 120! Rescues are incessant, new dogs in distress are reported every day. 

As a result, kibble needs are increasing, and the stock has been used up much more quickly than expected: a situation that Hind did not have time to anticipate, and that she cannot rectify on her own today.

"Animal’s life in Morocco is nothing but a misery. They have no status. They are not regarded as beings. The number of dogs is always in increase and it’s pretty hard to cope with all expenses brought by this increase" explains Hind.

 

 

4. If we don't reach the target, dogs won't receive anything

A failed collection on Animal Webaction

 

We can take action, we have already booked a truck and pallets, but we have to pay it before August 05

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 the collection fails, we will refund all donors.

 

5. Few donations, no subsidies, Hind finances 80% of the expenses on her own

###
Hind dedicates her time and money to the shelter, but cannot face this growing demand without support

 

###
Hind works full time to finance the shelter. Without a volunteer, she pays employees monthly to take care of the dogs in her absence

 

Following the signing of an agreement with the Town Hall, Hind was given a room to accommodate the dogs, and was also to receive subsidies, but these were never paid: "We have been promised to be helped with grants to pay for the sterilization and other expenses, but nothing has been granted yet." she regrets.

As for donations, they are precious but random and largely insufficient to cover needs: "People only donate for specific cases; for a specific animal, but they don’t donate on a regular basis. I even pay the workers from my own money; my own salary. There are a lot of other expenses. I also pay for the gas of the ambulance. Sometimes the workers even have to pay from their own money"

 

6. Overwhelmed by rescues and responsibilities, Hind doesn't have time to look for new sponsors

###
Hind does her best to accommodate and/or manage the rescue and care of many dogs in Morocco

 

What will happen to street dogs if the association is no longer able to intervene?

 

Poisoning, car accidents and abandonment are commonplace. If the association does not always succeed in saving them all, it is now trying to save the lives of as many people as possible

 

In addition to the shelter, the association also plays a role as a dispensary, designed to help as many animals as possible. Since the beginning of the year, 300 dogs have been treated by the dispensary team, and 4000 since its creation.

Rescues, water and animal transport, emergency management and social networking are Hind's daily routine, yet she works full time to finance the shelter.... 

Her days start at 5am, and end at 12am, she literally can't do more! 

 

 

7. If the collection doesn't work, Hind will have to give up everything

Determined, Hind must however be realistic, and knows that she will not be able to keep up at this pace without external help:

"Without donations we cannot continue fighting for our cause. We cannot continue fighting for animal’s rights, for dog’s lives, for life. We are lacking money to cover our expenses, but once we are out of stock, we will not be able to cover everything; therefore, surrendering to this harsh reality."

 

 

8. They have already suffered a lot, we must help them

###
When Jazz arrived at the shelter, he was unable to move: his two hind legs had been seriously injured in an accident. One of them had to be amputated, but the second one could be repaired, Jazz now manages to walk again!

 

###
Rahma was suffering from a very advanced skin disease when Hind intervened, and has not yet fully healed. Still under treatment, her condition is likely to worsen rapidly if there is a food shortage

 

###
At the shelter for less than 6 months, Rex was rescued in poor condition, hungry and with a severe femoral fracture

 

###
Darwa was the victim of an accident and had to be amputated with a front leg

 

###
Victim of a poisoning 6 months ago, Hazina was taken care of at the shelter and miraculously survived

 

###
Covered in ticks and starving when she was rescued, Aziza managed to recover during her stay

 

 

9. Hind always places the shelter first

###

 

Hind is a real warrior who fights for animal protection; even if it means forgetting her own problems. For years, she has been fighting to raise awareness among Moroccans in order to eradicate, she hopes one day, cruelty to stray animals.

But her commitment is not without sacrifices: "I don’t spend enough time with my own family; I have 3 beautiful children, and I am not always available for my  job.I don’t travel. I don’t sleep well. I also need to handle the horses I rescue, and also have about 100 cats that I need to manage, too. So I don’t have time for my own life" she says.

 

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

Petitions follow one another to ask the authorities to put an end to the slaughterings carried out throughout the country, in vain

 

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.

However, spaying programmes 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. What will the 2000 kg of kibble collected be used for ?

This collection is organized by the association Comme Chiens et Chats Maroc. The 2000 kg of kibbles collected will be delivered to Hind to feed the 120 dogs for which the association is responsible.
