  • Description


    I'm Leeny from germany and I just build up a shelter for stray dogs in Akchour (Rif Mountains) , close to Chefchaouen in the north of Morocco. In a house in the mountains, with a beautiful view we provide a safe place to recover and finding adopters over seas for our dogs.
    We take care of injured strays, abandoned puppy's and do our best we can to feed, vaccine and neuter as many straydogs in and around Chefchaouen as we can.
    Also we need seriously help somethimes with tnvr projects. Next one is 15.-18.Nov.2019.

  • Accommodation


    A room in a small house in the mountains with your own bed. Maybe you share the room with one or two more persons but that doesn't have to be the case.
    There's only cold water, so in winter you have to boil water if needed. We have no electricity, only solar power banks.
    No TV, no air conditioner, no Shops, Restaurants, Bars next to us. We're quite isolated.
    No imidiately neighbors. Most interaction is with the dogs. We are located in a small village with nice and calm people from the mountains who live a simple live.
