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.
