The Société centrale canine marocaine (SCCM) was created in 1934 as the first organization of cynophilia in Morocco, in accordance with Dahir n°1-58-376 of November 15, 1958, relating to the right of association.
Placed under the supervision of the Ministry of agriculture and agrarian reform, the SCCM works to encourage breeding and the betterment of canine breeds in Morocco, as per the regulations and standards of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).
The SCCM brings together all the breed and working clubs across the country, issues and reviews all pedigrees, and holds the Moroccan Book of Origins (LMO). The LMO is the official registry for canine breeds, created by Decree n°2-58-328 of June 23, 1956, and contains all registrations of purebred dogs, including those made on the old books of the formerly named Société canine du Maroc.
At the core of its mission, the SCCM works with Moroccan veterinarians and the country’s many cynophiles to oversee the betterment of canine breeds and the creation of new clubs across different cities.
Indeed, breed and working clubs remain the true workshops of the development of Moroccan cynophilia. They are a priority and as such, they benefit from subsidies granted by the Ministry of agriculture and agrarian reform.
Among the many clubs under SCCM supervision, the Sloughi Club of Casablanca and the Atlas shepherd Club of Rabat are vested with the task to promote these two Moroccan breeds as an inherent part of our national heritage.
