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).
Sponsor a Bear is a monthly giving programme allowing you to sponsor one of our rescued bears (including our special-care bears) at our China or Vietnam sanctuaries. By sponsoring one of these intelligent, forgiving bears, you will be helping to provide all the basic care he or she needs to recover from the cruel past and lead a healthy, happy life. It costs just US$45 a month.
For US$55 a month, you can sponsor one of our special-care bears – those with extra physical or mental needs.
Where your money goes
Your sponsorship will provide bears with all their basic care – nutritious food and clean water, veterinary care and accommodation at the sanctuary – so they can put their horrible pasts behind them and enjoy life as the beautiful moon bears they were born to be.
As a special-care bear sponsor, you will be able to help gentle souls like our brain-damaged Rupert lead a life free from pain and fear. These bears need a secure enclosure where they will feel safe with other disabled bears and where they will get the close monitoring and special diets they need.
What you get as a sponsor
As a sponsor, you will be able to share in the joy seeing your bear progress over time. Initially, we will send you a folder with a sponsorship certificate, a photo of your bear in a printed frame and information about your bear and his/her character. Each year we will send you an update and a new photo so you can see for yourself how your bear is progressing. You will also receive regular updates on the Moon Bear Rescue.
But best of all, you will be able to go to sleep at night knowing that because you cared enough to act, a majestic, endangered animal will have the life he or she so desperately deserves.
Join our Sponsor a Bear programme now and receive your own gorgeous little moon bear! Each new sponsor will not only receive our great information pack with a beautiful photo of your special bear, but we will also include this beautiful, plush moon bear toy as a token of our thanks for your commitment.
