We did not start out with the idea of giving refuge to 900 dogs. Association Le Coeur sur la patte was working with the Agadir Commune to neuter and vaccinate the street dogs with the aim of eradicating rabies and controlling the street dog population. Early in 2018 the authorities decided that all dogs had to be removed from the street. As the existing facilities were designed for 80 dogs and there were over 1200 dogs that had been vaccinated and neutered, we had no choice but to find another home for them.
At the moment we are on rented land with some buildings. This is not perfect. Ideally we would like to buy land and build a proper refuge. But first we have to make sure each animal has food and water, shelter and care.
We can only do this with your support
From our Supporters
I am currently saving all my change (coins) and lottery winnings ($4 from a scratch it ticket - I don't buy tickets very often but I felt lucky the other day) for SARA. I am almost to $10 which I will donate to SARA soon - perhaps for the upcoming fundraising campaign! I find dropped coins while out walking my dogs around our small downtown and it's surprising how they add up.

We have several campaigns running!
We cannot exist without the help of all our supporters and we want to say Thank You to everyone.
Every penny helps us to look after the animals in the shelter, give them the care and support they need, it helps us to pay the wages of the staff and the rent on the land, it helps us to pay the vet bills and keep the organisation running.
Thank you to people who send money when they can, the people who send us 1 Euro every month, to the people who send us more. Thank you to the people who sponsor animals and to the people who help by sharing and commenting and liking our posts.
We also want to say thank you to the organisations who have supported us.
