Moroccan streets are overflowing with stray dogs and cats, both dead and alive. Not to mention the awfully abused working donkeys, mules and horses.
Human rights in Morocco are particularly poor so it is of little consolation or surprise that animal rights are low down the pecking order! Working animals are seen as mere machines – such a far cry from our own experiences of pampered ponies and gymkhanas.
it is with a little relief to see that some cats, especially those that are able to stay near butchers, are fed (small) meat scraps regularly. A few cats are able to survive well but most look like mangy, bedraggled, skeletal flea pits, that eat out of bins, drink water from dirty puddles and are generally abused by the local children.
Of everything we’ve seen in Morocco, and there’s been a lot, the suffering of animals has been the worst.
For this we are making this fundraising to help this animals by making an adoption centre for dogs, puppies, cats and kittens
The adoption centre is more than just a place to adopt an animal- it is a great place to go, spend a day with all the cats and kittens, have a soft drink or chocolate bar, and chat to the friendly volunteers about all things animal related or otherwise. Volunteers were always ready to listen and provide support.
this new, smaller adoption centre in an area where rent is more affordable and therefore sustainable. The opening of a centre will reduce the pressure to find new foster carers, particularly for senior cats who often stay in long term care with us before they find the right human to adopt them. A centre will also provide more publicity for our animals, increasing their chances of finding new homes. It will also allow potential adopters to visit and interact with our animals before deciding to adopt. A centre will lead to more adoptions which will create more funding which in turn leads us to being able to help more animals. Increased income will also allow us to pay back some of the debts we owe to wonderful past supporters.
Can you help us by making a fully tax deductable donation to help us to fund a new centre
It’s always nice to leave a donation
