First mission of Vet without Borders Portugal in Sao VicentePublished 19 Dec, 2018 under Volunteering

The first veterinarian sent to Sao Vicente from the recently-signed partnership between SIMABO and Veterinários Sem Fronteiras – Portugal confirmed the high standard met by this organization in helping organizations all around the world to improve animal and human welfare.

Dr. Catarina Fogaça dedicated 100% of her energies to the project, helping with a lot of different activities, from checking the dogs in our shelter and improving procedures, to holding workshops in schools, to helping in the clinic with consultations and assisting spaying/neutering operations. The best experience ever to open up a new era in the history of our association!

Thank you Catarina, Dr. Manuela and Prof. Conceiçao for making all this possible!

All volunteers are special, but some are more special than others.Published 01 Dec, 2018 under Volunteering

Thank you PY Bagel for the great help you gave to SIMABO all around the clock!
We know it was difficult, to share the computer with Elettra, the sofa at the hostel with Dada, the office with Hektor, Raivosa, Blackie, Bia, Bea, Sarna, Natalino, Max, Thomas and occasional visitors!

Even our guests at the shelter had some great time with you!
We want to hope you will be back again, maybe after a loooong rest! ))
Missing you a lot…
