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).

On New Year's Eve 2008 pregnant Twizzle, along with 148 other sick and badly injured dogs, was heading for a live animal market - and ultimately the stockpot, when the truck she was on was intercepted and the dogs rescued by the Qi Ming dog rescue centre.
Helena Molloy was one of our volunteer vet nurses who helped with this rescue and nursed Twizzle back to health. It wasn't long before Twizzle captured her heart. This is a film of their story.
This is a story with a happy ending but there are a few clips that you may find distressing, we've put a warning in the film to let you know when these clips appear.
What can I do to help?

Support from caring people like you can help Animals Asia’s work, in partnership with animal lovers across China, to change people’s perceptions of dogs and cats, showing them as our loyal, loving companions.
In the past six months we’ve seen some incredible developments in China with more and more people coming out in support of companion animals – and Animals Asia is supporting them all the way.
Last October, in Sichuan Province, activists intercepted a truck containing around 800 caged dogs destined for the famous dog-eating region of Guangxi, Guilin.
Two local dog rescue centres, Qi Ming and Home of Love led the dog rescue, and we provided support including emergency funds for food and medical help, offering technical support where required. Since then, there have been several more dog rescues by brave animal activists, again Animals Asia provided back-up support and advice.
Your text donation today will help us support and work with local animal welfare groups such as Qi Meng, communities and local authorities in changing long-held attitudes and empowering people to affect change and stop the brutal treatment of dogs and cats.
Please help us today to create lasting change for dogs and cats in China
