Along with the dogs, pictures show other animals - including cats and donkeys - that have been saved by the sanctuary, which has now housed over 500 critters.

A sanctuary spokesperson said: "Over the years, through hard work and dedication, SFT has grown exponentially and is now home to over 500 animals.

"We have a strict no kill policy, and offer a forever loving home to all the animals that come into our care.

"We have animals at the sanctuary that, if we hadn't saved, would almost certainly have been euthanised. These include 15 very happy disabled dogs scooting about on wheels, many dogs and cats who have amputated limbs and so many more with ongoing expensive medical conditions. But to us, every life is precious.

"We have given them all a happy life after their horrific pasts and suffering. Almost all of these dogs have been run over by cars, which happens often here in Morocco, and one was hit by a train, Caesar.

"However, the sanctuary is in desperate need of funding and support to continue our vital work. We still have no electricity or running water, our enclosures need fixing and updating and we need to employ many more people to manage our growing family of animals and continue our community work.

"Everything that has been achieved so far has only been possible thanks to our amazing supporters. We still receive no corporate or government funding and rely 100 percent on voluntary donations.

"If you are able to donate or would like to become a corporate sponsor, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you."

SFT was the childhood dream of founder, Sally Kadaoui after growing up in Tangier and witnessing the suffering of stray animals. She dreamed of taking them in and giving them the home and love they needed.

In 2013 Sally started doing just that, while living with her sister in Tangier, she started helping the strays - taking them to the vet to be neutered, vaccinated and treated.

No I'm not crying, you are.
