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).
"The mission of the Animals Asia Foundation is to end cruelty and restore respect for all animals, Asia-wide".
Our emphasis on the "individual" sees our Dr. Dog ambassadors promoting animal welfare through people welfare and pioneering the right of all animals to be treated with respect and compassion."
Our Dr. Dog Vision
"Animals Asia works towards the day when all animals are embraced within their own right. Through innovative and sensitive transformation, our vision progresses the ideal that empathy for one animal can evolve into empathy for an entire species - and ultimately for all species."
The Bigger Picture
When considered in the light of the millions of dogs and cats, slaughtered for food each year in markets across Asia, our Dr. Dog programme is so much more than a source of support for people.... it represents the driving force behind a new movement to promote the concept of animal welfare in Asia and give hope to the many animals that lie forgotten.
The key role of the Dr. Dog programme in our "Friends....or Food?" campaign is to encourage a respect for all life at a grass roots level, whilst demonstrating the mutually beneficial relationship between people and animals. Our dedicated Dr. Dogs represent a growing number of animal ambassadors working in valuable community roles to help both people and animals in need.
