Association for the Support of North African Sloughis
Established September 15 of 2008
The Association for the Support of North African Sloughis was created September 15 of 2008.
purpose states, ASNAS is a not for profit
group which organizes fundraisers to buy
veterinary products needed by Sloughis
traditionally bred in North Africa. It thus
works for the very preservation of the
Sloughis in North Africa.
ASNAS member Dr. Dominique de Caprona was
first contacted in June of 2005 by a young
Moroccan man asking for help, because "our
sloughis are dying like flies" he said. He
was first referred to authorities in his
country but not much happened, and following
more interaction, Dr. de Caprona was invited
by him to come visit the hunters of El Wafae
in Khenichet. She travelled there in May of
2008 and was received by great generosity.
Dr. de Caprona had brought with her the
first donations of the Sloughi Fanciers
Association of America's board members.
These generous donations enabled the
vaccinations against canine diseases of all
the El Wafae Sloughis, the worming of
puppies and adults, the treatments of
infections with antibiotics and against
ticks and fleas.
Collars were also given to
the Sloughis as well as monetary
contributions to el Wafae's activities and
participation at the Moussem in
Marrakech that year.
The first vaccinations May 2008
The first project associated with ASNAS was
the lovely auction organized by the Sloughi
Fanciers Association of America ( SFAA )
in September of 2008 for its Partner Club El
Wafae in Morocco. It was the SFAA's special
event to celebrate its 20th
anniversary. Several members of SFAA
donated their time, their very interesting
and beautiful items for the auction and many
worldwide bid generously on them. Friends of
Sloughi owners contributed also with very
generous donations in addition to the
auction. This fundraiser was a resounding
success raising a very
substantial amount of funds.
To separate the accounts of SFAA from
the funds for El Wafae, ASNAS was created.
The name itself was Dr. de Caprona's idea
and was registered in the state of Iowa,
USA. The funds raised by this 20th
anniversary SFAA auction were exclusively
used to provide the Sloughis of the region
of Gharb Cherarda Beni Hsen in Morocco
with wormers, tick and flea treatments,
collars and leashes, and other needed
