In Morocco, Fanny and Lucy have no more kibbles for the suffering stray dogs, they will starve to death!

Following Fanny's SOS, we went on the spot on November 29th.

At that time, there were only 10 days of kibbles left.

Fanny and Lucy devote their entire lives to sick and injured dogs, who have no chance of survival outside on their own.

Without kibbles, they will no longer be able to shelter them, they are condemned to a certain death.

For them, Lucy and Fanny have sacrificed everything: they accept to manage pain and misery on a daily basis, but cannot accept to abandon them for lack of resources.

We want to help them by sending 3000 kg of kibble as a matter of urgency.

100% transparency guaranteed.

 

 

1. Without kibbles, stray dogs in distress will no longer be rescued, they are condemned to certain death

$$$
Trapped between two poles on a construction site, without anyone helping him for probably a very long time, Bombay was discovered in critical condition. Although he died in spite of the care provided, Fanny and Lucy's intervention allowed him to be cared for and cherished before he passed away

 

A former street dog, Bigudingu contracted leishmaniasis, an incurable parasitic disease that can be fatal and requires life-long treatment to be kept under control. Bigudingu suffered multiple injuries when he was rescued, and was still under treatment at the time of our visit

 

Mathilda was in a terrible condition when she was found.... Extremely thin and dehydrated, she was infested with parasites, suffering from infections and mange. Tests have shown that she also has leishmaniasis. At the shelter for several months, Mathilda is still on treatment today

 

###
Recently rescued, Ringo was still very affected by the disease, which obviously affects his skin, but also his immune system. Additional tests and long treatment are absolutely necessary

 

When Fanny and Lucy rescue an animal, it is necessarily because he is in great suffering, and has no chance of surviving without help: 

"We only take injured or sick animals. The strays we bring in, if we can treat them and neuter them, quickly we put them back. But mostly, it is car accident, cancer, viruses, it takes them a long time to get better, and at this point we can't put them back"

If they cannot find kibbles, they will no longer be able to shelter these dogs in distress, who will be condemned to die outside...

 

 

2. Despite the pain and deaths, Lucy and Fanny are relentlessly caring for abandoned dogs, but they will soon run out of kibbles to feed them

"It feels like the last few weeks have been full of losses. We have said goodbye to so many babies." Lucy said a short while ago. Like dozens of others, Buzz contracted parvovirus this fall, and wasn't strong enough to fight it

 

$$$
Mektub passed away mid-November, as she had contracted distemper, like several other dogs. Despite systematic vaccinations, the effect is unfortunately not immediate, and diseases cannot be totally prevented

 

$$$
Fanny and Lucy know that it is impossible to save all dogs, but are determined to fight till the end for each one of them. "You'd think every new case would bring us down a little more. But in fact, it's just the opposite." Suffering from cancer, Lemon was still in care at the time of our visit, but passed away in early December

 

###
Found with his throat slit through and through at the beginning of November, Forest is gradually healing, but required a lot of care when he arrived

 

###
Marley is suffering from cancer of the penis, which weakens him, and needs treatments to heal

 

###
Left on the roadside after being hit by a car, Jojo is currently unable to walk normally, and needs a physiotherapist

 

###
Suffering from sepsis from a wound caused by a fight on the street, Simon had to be rescued urgently and undergo an amputation. He has since declared an ulcer, which requires surgery

 

United in their fight, Lucy and Fanny rescue sick or wounded dogs only, whom they relentlessly gather and treat in their two shelters. But the dogs in distress have been increasing in recent weeks, using up their resources and leaving them with nothing but debts...

"Our hospital area is full. One paralyzed dog and a puppy with his jaw missing occupy the communal area. We are literally over flowing." Lucy said a short while ago.

"Maybe you think that seeing all this every day is hard. But it’s not this part of the job that pains us. We can handle the blood and the burials. We can clean up the shit and mop us the mess. We will pick up the dying any day but finding the money to make the rest happen we can not do. Pleading for help is what we struggle with the most." she simply stated.

 

 

3. We were on site on November 29th, there were only 10 days left of kibbles: Fanny and Lucy are suffocated by the lack of resources

###
In their shelters, Lucy and Fanny now care for more than 170 dogs.... Getting enough food for all of them is a constant challenge

 

###
"Every month we have a problem with the spread of disease and the lack of funds and health issues of the animals. And repairing things in the shelter. Every month we struggle" Lucy explained when we came. "It feels paralysing to have so much to achieve while we are stuck because of the lack of money" Fanny confirmed

 

###
Following their SOS, we went to the site on November 29. There were only 30 bags of kibble left, enough to feed the dogs for only 10 days....

 

Called for help by Fanny, we went there on November 29th to meet her and Lucy, as well as the 170 dogs in their care.

There were only 30 bags of kibble left in stock, the equivalent of 10 days' worth of food for the dogs. At the time of our visit, they still had nearly 1000€ of unpaid debts for food only, it is impossible for them to consider a new order as it is...

 

 

4. Despite their cries for help, Fanny and Lucy can't get out of it, they're desperate

Shortly before our visit, Fanny made a desperate call for help to her community...

 

Fanny and Lucy are constantly torn between all the needs: food, medical care, neuterings, equipment... the need is so strong on the spot for abandoned dogs that they cannot bring themselves to abandon them

 

Search for sponsors, partnerships, fundraising... they go to great lengths to raise funds and keep projects alive, but that's not enough!

 

 

Fanny and Lucy are both very determined and have great ambitions for the animal cause in Morocco. But both dedicate their whole life and all their time to the shelters: because they cannot work, their own resources are extremely low, the donations are essential to the survival of their project.

"We live in a caban and life is hard. Getting water, getting electricity, getting supplies. We are going thought hard times right now and even though we know this too shall pass, it feels like hell. It’s the middle of the night, tomorrow is scary and so close. Come over, donate, share, send supplies, comment, talk : spread the word ! We are reaching out for help, take our hand and help us go through it, help us keep up the good work. Help us help them" implores Fanny.

 

 

5. 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 December 10th.

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.

 

 

6. Fanny and Lucy spend all their time in the shelters, they have almost no resources and cannot buy kibble

###
With 120 dogs in her shelter, Lucy is always on all sides: "I sleep upstairs, where the puppies and cats are. I feed and medicate everyone, fill the water buckets, paperwork, vet, meetings, everything. I have no money."

 

###
In her shelter, Fanny takes in many sick and weakened dogs, who require a lot of care and time. Not to mention the spayings and neuterings she performs continuously in the village. "I don't have a job, I'm a full-time volunteer."

 

###
Fanny's shelter also hosts many puppies, who require great vigilance and a lot of work

 

"Food is from donations, I have no money" Lucy told us sadly when we met. If she does not regret this fact for herself, she deplores it for the good of the abandoned dogs.

Both expatriated and 300% invested in animal protection in Morocco, Fanny and Lucy have literally given up everything, and devote absolutely all their time to the shelter. They content themselves with the minimum and live in very precarious conditions, but their sacrifice is not enough to clear the resources to buy kibbles! 

 

 

7. Neither the government nor the city provides them with a grant, the support offered by other associations is far too low

Fanny and Lucy's shelters do not receive any subsidies from the state or the municipality, and operate completely independently.

Although they sometimes receive occasional assistance from other animal rescues in Morocco, those are also confronted with similar difficulties, and can only help out for a few days at best...

 

 

8. Lucy and Fanny have already sacrificed everything for the abandoned dogs, there's no way for them to do more

###
Our agent Khadija (left) went to meet Lucy (right). An expatriate from her native Australia, Lucy has spent the last three years devoting herself to the plight of abandoned animals: "It wasn't what I wanted. It was in front of me."

 

###
Khadija also met Fanny (right), who chose to get involved with Moroccan dogs after attending slaughter during a trip. "I can't imagine being anywhere else. My family of course is sad and so am I, but even when I go home my head stays here"

 

Both expatriates, Lucy and Fanny have chosen to join forces to help a greater number of animals, and to change their fate. But their commitment implies leaving everything behind.

"It is a personal sacrifice. There is no  Lucy as a person, there is no time. Everything is in the moment. Two days ago, a cat that I loved very much died and it broke my heart. I really cried a lot, but, it's finite, there is nothing I can do about it, and if I spend my time thinking about it then the rest of the animals here miss out. So I am forced to keep going" Lucy explained. 

A sacrifice and determination shared by Fanny: "I have no life outside of this, there is no place for friends, no place for anything in fact. I still have 4 or 5 years to get by for everything to run without me. The goal is to create that, of course I would like to have a way out, but if I can't I won't leave, I've committed myself there and I will honor this commitment"

 

 

9. Fanny and Lucy are fighting for them, we have to help them continue

###
Maya is currently undergoing treatment for a sexually transmitted cancer, that is causing serious damage to street dog populations

 

###
Affected by ringworm, Zouina has various skin lesions, and is currently undergoing treatment

 

###
Leah had to have one of her hind legs amputated as a result of an accident, and can't go back on the street

 

###
Suffering from excessive injuries, Robbin had to undergo an amputation, and now walks on 3 legs

 

###
Loulou suffered from a double fracture of the paw that could not be repaired, and had to be amputated. He now lives at Lucy's shelter, who is trying to cover his needs and hopes for his adoption

 

 

###
Mathilda has come a long way since her arrival at Fanny's shelter, but she is not yet cured. Suffering from leishmaniasis, she also has kidney problems related to her treatment

 

###
A large German Shepherd dog, Boy had to be amputated with a leg and has since remained under Lucy's protection

 

 

10. Fanny and Lucy are determined to make a difference, and want animal suffering in Morocco to be finally acknowledged

###
"There are very very tragic heartbreaking moments. But then 1 hour later maybe, something beautiful" Lucy, eternal optimist, told us

 

"My hope for the animals in Morocco is for them to be on the map.  I don't think we have enough international attention. The situation here is really serious and horrific. My main fear, is that we don't build a relationship with the government that supports our work and TNR and acknowledges that is a real issue with street animals" says Lucy.

It is within this framework that they collaborate with the Italian association StrayDogs, whose actions are entirely dedicated to allowing a peaceful coexistence between species, particularly between street animals and human beings, and which has chosen to organize this collection to support the actions of Lucy and Fanny who make a real difference on the spot.

 

 

11. Slaughtered and exterminated for decades, Moroccan street dogs are at the centre of all debates

International opinion has rebelled in recent months to protest against the cruel slaughter carried out in the country for decades. Although they have just been officially banned by the Ministry of the Interior, everything remains to be done to control street dog populations...

 

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

Usually poisoned with strychnine, or shot with a gun, street dogs suffer slow and painful deaths, which have outraged international opinion in recent months.

In November 2019, the Ministry of the Interior officially banned the killing with poison and rifle, but very few towns have yet established a spay and neuter plan.... The fight must therefore continue, to prevent street dogs from ending their lives in death row pounds as is now the case in some towns.

 

12. Thanks to our logistics center in Morocco we can intervene quickly

If the collection succeeds, the food will leave directly from our logistics center in Morocco! So we can act very quickly, and help Fanny and Lucy's 170 dogs to get kibble!

 

13. What will the 3000 kilos of kibble collected be used for?

This collection is organized by the Italian association StrayDogs, for the benefit of Fanny and Lucy's shelters in Morocco. The 3000 kg of kibbles collected will be delivered to Fanny and Lucy to feed the 170 dogs hosted in their shelters.
