Dogs In Wheelchairs Kickin’ Up Dust At Animal Shelter In Morocco

SFT Animal Sanctuary based in Tangier, Morocco is home to over 500 animals rescued from the streets. The rescue provides a forever loving home for the pets that are not adopted, including 15 disabled dogs. Most of the dogs were found on the side of the road paralyzed after being hit by a car. The group vows to “never turn away from an animal in need and do our very best for each any every one of them.”

Each day they are faced with wounded, abandoned and starving animals that need help. With generous donations from people around the world, they were able to get wheelchairs for the disabled dogs, dubbed “wheelie dogs”. The dogs were once again able to run and play.


A video posted on the rescues Twitter showed a pack of “wheelie dogs” kicking up dust chasing a green ball. They played and acted like any other dog, not letting their paralyses get in their way. The hard-working staff built a sand pit that allows the “wheelie dogs” to play, after the rain washed out the previous area.
