Rescued pups with disabilities running on the beach will give you all the feels!
Morocco, Africa – Le Sanctuaire De La Faune De Tanger (SFT) was the childhood dream of our founder, Salima Kadaoui (Sally). Growing up in Tangier, Sally saw the suffering of the stray population and dreamt of taking them home to give them the love and care they so desperately needed.
In 2013 Sally started doing just that. While living with her sister in Tangier, she started helping the strays – taking them to the vet to be neutered, vaccinated and treated. After rescuing more than 50 animals, much more space was needed, so she moved to land 23km outside of Tangier.
Over the years, through hard work and dedication, SFT has grown exponentially and is now home to over 500 animals.
“We have a strict no-kill policy, and offer a forever loving home to all the animals that come into our care.
We have animals at the sanctuary that, if we hadn’t saved, would almost certainly have been euthanised. These include 15 very happy disabled dogs scooting about on wheels, many dogs and cats who have amputated limbs and so many more with ongoing expensive medical conditions. But to us, every life is precious.”
Sally recently took her 15 “special” pups to the beach and left the internet in tears!

However, the sanctuary is in desperate need of funding and support to continue our vital work. They still have no electricity or running water, their enclosures need fixing and updating, and they need to employ many more people to manage their growing family of animals and continue their community work.
“Everything that has been achieved so far has only been possible, thanks to our amazing supporters. We still receive no corporate or government funding and rely 100% on voluntary donations.”
