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).
Celebrating the work of our Dr Dogs and Professor Paws

Once a year, Animals Asia Foundation holds the ‘Dog Devotion Awards’. This gives us the opportunity to acknowledge all the hard work and hours all our volunteers put into making our Dr Dog and Professor Paws programmes run smoothly and with so much success. Dogs and their guardians, along with our teaching volunteers, who have devoted an exceptional amount of time to our programme, were awarded prizes and gifts as a token of appreciation.
Attendees and guests also enjoyed the Pet Cadet Song performed by 16 students from Ma On Shan Ling Liang Primary School. Jill Robinson, founder and CEO of Animals Asia Foundation could not have been more proud that so many individuals are working together to show that, with love and care, companion animals enrich our lives in so many ways. They are our friends, not our food.
Our next Dog Devotion award will be held in November 2010.
