years ago this April, Jill Robinson first walked onto a bear bile farm. On that day in April 1993, Jill could have walked away, but she chose to act and do what she could. Today, you also have a choice. If everyone reading this donated just US$20, it would pay for the care of over 150 bears at our China sanctuary for a full year. Please help us celebrate 20 years of progress. Donate US$20 today (or whatever you can afford).
In September 2009 the first draft 'Animal Protection Law' for China was issued for public consultation, written by Law Professors from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Institute of Law and upported by the RSPCA and Animal Guardians Ltd.
The development of a draft animal protection law is a unique opportunity to develop legislation to provide, at the very least, basic protection for animals across China and one which Animals Asia wishes to embrace for the benefit of all animals across the country. The draft includes measures to protect companion animals, farm animals, wild animals, laboratory animals, and working animals against cruelty.
Animals Asia are pleased that after many years the debate on the development of the first animal protection law is taking place within China, we have provided extensive recommendations for additional animal protection measures to be included within the draft law, and will continue to call for additional measures to provide protection for all animals as well as ban the immensely cruel practices of farming bears for their bile and the killing and eating of dogs and cats for food.
