'Sima bo' is a Creole expression that means 'like you'. Our main objective is to spay/neuter as many animals as possible on the island, to avoid poisoning campaigns and other cruel and useless means used by the local authorities against street dogs and cats. Our project, based on the three pillars of castration, deworming and adoption, is the first and only one of this kind that received a EU-grant worldwide to date. SIMABO employ 12 workers, all Capeverdeans, whose salary derives from the hostel's revenues. Any sensible traveller will be able to assess how sweet and innocent these animals are, and will have the possibility to visit our shelter and clinic to have a glimpse our daily work! By visiting Mindelo and Sao Vicente with us, or by staying at our Hostel, you will contribute directly to our cause and to the salaries of our workers without additional costs for you. Please note that we don't have animals at the Hostel, but you can visit our shelters and our clinic at any time during your stay.
