A bunch of disabled dogs could not be happier at running on a beach for the first time.
Salima Kadaoui decided to take 18 dogs from animal shelter SFT Animal Sanctuary which she founded in Tangiers, Morocco, for a day trip on July 4.
Taking their first steps on to the sand, the precious pooches run through the surf lapping against the shore, completely forgetting they have wheelchairs.
Salima said: “They loved the beach.
“I don’t usually take as many but this time we hired a van and had many volunteers.
“We were at the beach at 7.30am to make sure the babies could run around and explore.
“Most were disabled by car accidents and left on the side of the road to die.
“We rescued them and as you can see, they are very happy dogs.
“In total we have close to 600 animals in the Sanctuary, including dogs, cats, donkeys and monkeys.”
