The American Fondouk Animal Hospital: An Oasis for Animals in North Africa

An amazing's really hard to imagine how much difference this animal hospital makes in the daily lives of hundreds of Moroccan families, the ones who need the most help. The animals treated in the hospital are more than just companions, they are partners in life.
The American Fondouk was founded by Sidney Haines Coleman, former President of the American Humane Association, in the 1920s. The Fondouk is a full-service animal hospital treating 50 to 100 animals a day, more than 18,000 annually. The hospital is staffed by a resident veterinarian, a blacksmith, and 8 other employees. An onsite laboratory helps with diagnosis and a small surgical facility handles routine procedures.
