A sweet girl!Published 14 Oct, 2014 under News

A selfie of us

We were on our way to Salamansa. With me is a sweet girl, a ‘street dog’ from the small village Salamansa. The great staff and volunteers at Si Ma Bo Associaçaospayed her and cared for her following the days after her surgery. I happily rode in the back of the truck with her to provide her comfort during our travel back to here ‘home.’ Once we arrived there, we were happily met by a long term volunteer who lives in this small community. With her help, Si Ma Bo is continuing to spay/neuter & care for animals there surpassing the number of animals they have already sterilized there …more than 90%. Goal 100% ♥♥ Oh, she was welcomed by other dogs who were obviously her friends since I witnessed an immediate exchange in bathing and kissing.

Our timing was on point since Si Ma Bo had a planned event in engaging with the community. What a much needed day and lifted my spirits in the heart wrenching happenings day to day here with these poor innocent souls. No doubt, spay & neuter is the only solution to not enough homes and all the needless suffering that follows.
