THE MOROCCO ANIMAL AID CAUSE

Description

We believe in change.

Every year the street animals in Morocco suffer. We need to help them & with your help, we can.

 We began as worried individuals, helping local street dogs of Taghazout. Years later, we are a team of volunteers, rescuing and rehabilitating hundreds of street animals in & around the Agadir region.

Our volunteer schedule is never the same. Some weeks we are overflowing with volunteers. Other weeks we really struggle. Whichever the scenario, we need to ensure that we are adequately covered to be able to meet the needs of the animals at the shelter. 

Morocco Animal Aid is run entirely by volunteers. Our volunteers come from all over the globe & are from all walks of life. Without our volunteers, our shelter does not run. The animals at Morocco Animal Aid are our patients. We have a duty of care to ensure that they are safe, healthy & happy. You will be contributing to help create a shift towards a safer, healthier, happier future for the animals of Morocco. We are a family here. But we work hard. Really hard. The work is smelly, noisy, dirty & physical. But the reward will always outweigh the sacrifice. We are here for them. You are making a difference.
