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).

From the director of The Story of the Weeping Camel comes another captivatingly beautiful story of nomadic family life in the endless expanse of the Mongolian landscape.
While taking a walk, six-year old Nansaa finds a little black and white spotted dog in a cave along the cliffs. She names him “Zochor” (or ‘Spot’ in English) and takes him home with her. But her father tells her to get rid of him because wild dogs attack the sheep.
When her father goes on a long trip to the city, Nansaa keeps the little dog, who becomes her trusted companion. One day she loses track of him in the tundra and, while searching for him, encounters an old nomad woman who tells her the legend of the cave of the yellow dog.
Nominated for the 2005 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, winner of the Palm D’Or, Cave of the Yellow Dog has been described as “Adorable” (Independent on Sunday) and “Utterly Irresistible” (The Times).
The “fair trade” is that you get to see a fantastic film in a unique 22-seat cinema, with access to a licensed bar, and a complementary vegan buffet, while making a donation. All proceeds to Animals Asia Foundation.
