Refuge In Need Of Support
a story about Gerald and Valerie a wonderful couple who originally came
from Belgium and moved to Morocco, they noticed the plight of the street
animals and wanted to help them. They came to the conclusion that they needed
a larger plot of land which they found on a hill in a small Village, they
started to build a home which they were hoping to help finance their project
by opening a guest table and a few rooms in the future (similar to B&B).
It soon became clear that the animals needed help ASAP so they then decided
to build paddocks foranimals that needed help, they only take animals that
are in desperate need of care and attention.
Gerald and Valerie help the people of the village with their animals, they
also go out and feed the street animals which doesn't just entail cats and
dogs but horses and Donkeys. They are a firm believer of spay and neuter
and release and have an international team of vets that use their shelter
to ensure this is done in a safe environment. They have also got a close
relationship with the government to allow the animals that have been spayed
and neutered to to wear ID tags that keep the animals safe on the street
and won't be picked up.
this takes funding for food, hay, medication and new projects
have support from different countries which is a great help with funding
but like many shelters they always need more to help more animals.
Gerald and Valerie are very dedicated in what they they wish to
achieve regarding the animals in their care and on the streets
