Do you accept volunteers?

Whilst we really do appreciate the interest we receive, we are inundated with volunteer requests on an almost daily basis. What we really need are people who want to become involved in SFT on a long-term basis, helping us with a range of tasks. For now, we are only accepting visits to the sanctuary from volunteers who have shown a longer-term commitment. If this is something you are happy to do, please get in contact and we'll invite you to our volunteer Facebook group.


I have found an injured/poorly animal outside of Tangier. Can you help?

While we would love to help every single animal in Morocco we are a very small team and already struggle to cover the cases we already receive. Search for a rescue local to your location and whatever you do, please DO NOT WALK AWAY. Take the animal to a vet to receive the help it so desperately needs. We must work together to end the suffering.


I have found an injured/poorly animal. Can I bring it to the sanctuary?

I have seen an injured/poorly animal but cannot take them to the vet. Can you help?

Firstly, please try and find a way to get the animal to a vet. DO NOT WALK AWAY. If there is no way that you can do this we will do our very best to help, but only if the animal is in Tangier.

My dog/cat has had unwanted puppies/kittens. Can I bring them to the sanctuary?

NO. We cannot have any non-vaccinated animal brought into the sanctuary. We cannot risk the health of our animals. You need to take the litter to our vet, along WITH the mother of the litter. Without the mother the litter has only a small chance of survival.
