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

1. In Morocco, Ibtissam is seriously ill and her stock of kibble is depleted. The 130 dogs in the shelter no longer have enough to eat, without our help their lives are in danger!

%%%

"At the shelter, I've been out of kibble for a week. My 130 dogs are not getting enough to eat, because I give them what I can buy, which is not much, especially with the current shortage of donations.

At the same time, I have been hospitalised due to health problems that keep accumulating, and which are aggravated by the stress linked to the constant uncertainty affecting the shelter. Doctors have advised that I rest completely so as not to risk the worst, but I can't, I have to find something to eat for my fur babies, because without kibble, their health will deteriorate and they will die eventually.

I live in fear and insecurity, I ask myself questions: will it get better? When will this nightmare end? It is a real torture. I am afraid that I will not be able to feed and care for my dogs, and that some of them will die because of the lack of food."

2. Without kibble, street feeding organised by Ibtissam can no longer take place and stray dogs will starve.

###

"Renewed lockdown measures have boosted abandonment once again, it really is a catastrophe. These measures are hard on people, they are even harder on dogs, I have already found some of them dead and many are in a state of severe malnutrition.

They are in a horrible situation as restaurants are closed and street dogs can't find any food. I have set up a small team to try and feed them, but this team depends on the food I can give them, when my biggest concern is precisely the lack of food!

And of course there are also the many sick and disabled dogs which I can no longer take in due to lack of means and space. When I think of the situation of the dogs in Marrakech, it hurts me and makes me sick, because I have been trying so much to improve it and I see that it does not work..."

3. Weakened by canine distemper that already claimed her sister's life, Dana needs kibble to restore her health.

###

"Dana is a one-and-a-half-year-old dog. She was born at the shelter, I had rescued her pregnant mother. Dana and her sister contracted canine distemper, sadly her sister did not survive.

Dana still has many after-effects, her health is miserable and she is very thin. It is essential that she gets enough to eat, particularly quality kibble."

4. Deprived of work for months, then hospitalised, Ibtissam is directly affected by the lack of donations and can no longer buy kibble.

###

"We receive very few donations, and when I say very few I mean virtually none, they have dropped like crazy, even though we need them most now. Hence I have to finance everything by myself, except I can't work anymore because there is no more tourism and I have these health problems.

I had to take on huge debts, especially from the kibble supplier, but now I have to pay them back, and as everyone is going through a nightmare and no one can see the end of the tunnel, people are afraid to donate, there is no more money coming in, and I am stuck.

If the lockdown is maintained, if the restaurants stay closed, if the situation keeps preventing people from donating and if I stay out of a job for much longer, it will really get out of hand."

5. Ibtissam is not asking for money, only kibble to keep the dogs from starving.

###

"My shelter was initially a pet boarding facility. In 2014, I took the land, built some nice boxes and started receiving clients. I myself used to have about 20 dogs. Later on, I took in other dogs that were abandoned in the village and turned my pet boarding facility into a shelter.

It involves big sacrifices in terms of money, time, life. It is a very big responsibility and it is hard to take a step back, as you can't help but feel anxiety when you can't feed your babies...

So I'm praying that everything will be alright, and in the meantime, thankfully, my loved ones are here to help me. We need this campaign so that the dogs can eat well and stay alive."

6. If this campaign succeeds, Ibtissam will not receive any money but 3500 kg of kibble, delivered from the Animal Webaction logistic platform in Morocco.

Animal Webaction has a logistic platform in Morocco, which allows us to intervene quickly and deliver kibbles.

7. Ibtissam is exhausted and does not know who to turn to. This kibble collection campaign is her last option.

"I keep contacting international organisations, sending messages and emails to everyone, but I get no help.

Unfortunately, the few appeals on Facebook that I am still able to make do not work either, last month I only managed to collect 26 euros in total!

Therefore I would like to pass on a message: please help us! By donating kibble or by helping with veterinary costs, and by adopting dogs, giving them a home and a family, you are truly saving lives!"

8. Campaigns launched on Animal Webaction often fail

Liste des récoltes échouées

When a campaign fails, Animal Webaction cannot deliver the products. The beneficiary doesn't receive anything and the buyers are refunded.

9. In Morocco, donors are scarce, and there are no foundations or subsidies. It is very difficult to find funding for kibbles, many dogs remain starving on the street!

If you know of a foundation or NGO that could help Ibtissam, please invite them to contact us so that we can put them in touch.

If you represent an animal protection foundation or NGO, please help Ibtissam's dogs, contact us and we will put you in touch!

If you want to come to Ibtissam's shelter to help her or if you want to send her directly some kibbles or a check, contact Ibtissam via Facebook (note: direct help is under your own responsibility).
