One vet from Bosnia!Published 28 Jun, 2018 under Guests of the month

Thanks a lot to Gerlinde Weber and Dr. Emilio Lavezzari for sponsoring the flight of Dr. Svjetlana. And thanks a lot to country mate Gospa for taking care of her in her little free time! And, last but not least, thanks so much to Nicky Stevens for recommending her!

 
Dr. Svjetlana is a young veterinary doctor from Bosnia with a wide experience in spaying/neutering. After a couple of days operating with our local vet Guilherme Regy Oliveira, to get used to our protocols for anestesia, she is now able to neuter up to 14 animals per day! Great! Bravissima! Love you

In spite of her young age, Sofia Gião Torrinha has a profound and genuine love of animals. She’s vegetarian because the animals are all the same: a dog doesn’t deserve more respect than a chicken nor a cow. Large or small, no animal deserves a life inflicted with great suffering.

This great love for animals took Sofia to volunteer for 2 weeks at SIMABO Association, on the island Sao Vicente, in Cape Verde – West Africa. Sofia’s provided great assistance in the care of our ‘guests’ at the shelter. They always like to play (look at his legs)!

During her stay, she visited Santo Antao, notoriously known as the green island. By boat, Santo Antao is just an hour away from Sao Vicente.
