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).
One of the brightest young stars of the Guangzhou Dr Dog team is four-year old shih tzu Chen BaoBao.
After passing her Dr Dog exam with flying colours, this gorgeous girl joined our Dr Dog Programme in 2011 much to the delight of her guardian, long-time volunteer and supporter of the programme, Ms Chen Zhixian.
Chen BaoBao had a famous older “brother”, Chen Baby, who at the grand age of 17 was the oldest Dr Dog in Guangzhou before he passed away in 2009. His loving guardian Ms Chen was deeply saddened by the loss, but is so happy to see BaoBao following in his footsteps as an outstanding Dr Dog.
Always warm and friendly, Chen BaoBao attracts plenty of hugs from young children and seniors alike. One of her biggest fans is 99-year old Grandpa Qiu from Nanzhuang Elderly Home, who refers to her as his little girl!
