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).
Animals Asia's Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre is not open to the public. However, to accommodate the many requests for visits, we are now holding Open Day tours for our supporters twice a month. Visitors are guided around the sanctuary by staff members.
As places are limited, Open Day visits are reserved for active Animals Asia donors only with a minimum donation of US$50 or equivalent, as it is their generosity that helps us continue our campaign to end bear bile farming and maintain the centre, caring for rescued bears for the remainder of their lives.
The tours are limited to two groups of maximum 20 people per day, starting at 9.30am and 3.00pm.
The Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre is about a two-hour drive from Hanoi and visitors will need to arrange their own transport. Once your booking is confirmed we will send you a map with directions and address of the rescue centre.
The tour lasts about 1-1.5 hours.
Please note that tour will be conducted in English or English/Vietnamese,
depending on the make up of the group.
If you would like to become a donor, please click here to add your contribution to the rescue centre's upkeep. As a donor you will receive regular updates on the centre and the progress of our campaign to end bear bile farming, as well as information on our other projects and inside stories on our bears.
The Open Days will be held on the dates listed below, and for administrative and organisational reasons, we cannot accommodate visitors outside of these dates.
