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.
Our team of Homedogs & Kitty Crew range from our Site Managers managing the shelter on the ground, to the Operations team who keep the wheels turning in the background.
We are nothing without the some of our parts
We believe in change. We believe that we can make a difference.
We are Morocco Animal Aid!
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.
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.
Cleaning: Poop scoop, rubbish collection, general sanitation of the shelter.
Walking/Hiking: The dogs are walked for a minimum 90 mins at a time on a rotating roster.
Animal Training: Training walks, to aid socialisation or to assist rehabilitation.
Staff Training: New volunteer inductions & patient care training.
Medical Treatment: Administering specialised treatments to animals when required.
Projects: Other initiatives, such as building, administration etc.
Volunteering with Morocco Animal Aid is unlike any other volunteer experience. Is it hard work? Absolutely! Is it at times overwhelming? You bet.
We are a small, hardworking team & while we encourage a fun & exciting experience, volunteers are expected to give 100% at all times. The success & future of MAA lies in the commitment, enthusiasm & dedication of our volunteers.
We are trying to create & sustain significant change towards the health & treatment of animals in Morocco & are looking for volunteers who wholeheartedly believe & support the change we are working hard to create.
Lucy is not only an amazing friend, person and leader of this organisation, but she is also the best friend of the dogs and cats in her care. She has so much compassion and care for the animals and is such an inspiration.
Thank you Lucy for an amazing experience I couldn’t get anywhere else. We will see each other again, and I cannot wait to see how far this organization goes
It was my first experience with dogs ever and it changed my opinion about them forever. I highly recommend you to join this project and help those beautiful animals that will touch your heart in a matter of seconds.
One of the best workaway experiences so far! It was so difficult for me to leave this place, I wish I would have been able to stay longer, much longer indeed.
I stayed with Lucy for 5 weeks and had an excellent time. Lucy is an excellent host and I enjoyed my time here. The work activities are very rewarding and enjoyable and got to meet some very interesting people.
Working there felt like therapy to me: you have to accept that you will get really dirty and scratched by the pure and rough love of almost 100 dogs and 20 cats.
