Thanks to the 68 incredible guests we had in February!Published 18 Feb, 2017 under Eco Holidays

Hi everybody! It was really a pleasure to have had you all with us this month! You helped us to cover our monthly expenses and to overcome an emergency: no fish for free from the usual provider this month, so we had to buy a lot of dry food, and it is very expensive here!

Mandy Sommacal e Martina Caporaletti, veterinarie, hanno scelto SIMABO per una vacanza solidale! Loro non passeranno le loro giornate a visitare cagnini sotto il sole, ma hanno acquistato un “viaggio organizzato” a S. Vicente e Santo Antao e raccolto alcune cose che ci sono utilissime, direi indispensabili: Farmaci, trasportini per gatti in metallo e anche un lenzuolo (con gli angoli 🙂) per l’ostello! Grazie di cuore per il sostegno e i regali!

Lucky straysPublished 27 Nov, 2016 under Adopt, Dogs, Eco Holidays

Nadia writes us on FB, asking for help for another stray:

“Hello everyone, yesterday night I fell in love with the sweetest stray dog ever. I met him in Terrafal, Santiago, he’s a puppy and he really doesn’t look healthy, he needs some good care and I would love to do it. The main problem is that tomorrow I am leaving Santiago by plane to go to Sal, and after 3 days i will leave Sal and go back to Europe. I won’t stay any longer and I won”t come back to Santiago. I need someone who can help me keeping him, doing the vaccinations and waiting for results, and then put him on a plane. I am of course willing to pay for those exams and the plane ticket. He totally stole my heart and i want to help him have a better life
How can I do??
Thank you!”

Advising her to call Associação Bons Amigos in Praia, after a few days we receive more news:

“Here are some more pictures. A friend found her and will take care of her until Bons Amigos will give her shelter and treatments. I hope everything will be just fine and she’ll full recover! She’s in a bad shape but she’s strong 😉”

It will take some time, but eventually will recover and we hope with all our heart so much love in this puppy!

Please help us continue our work!

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.
