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).

Special screening in celebration of World Animal Day of "Cave of the Yellow Dog" Event organised by the South Devon Animals Asia Foundation support group
Tuesday 4 October, The Blue Walnut, Walnut Road, Chelston, Torquay, TQ2 6HS. 7pm
Tickets £15 including a delicious, pre-show vegan buffet.
'Cave of the Yellow Dog' is a 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 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 to the city, Nansaa keeps the 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 and winner of the Palm DíOr.

As both walks are mainly through Londonís parks and back streets, street-wise dogs are also very welcome.
