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).
Unmanaged Stray/feral cat populations increase exponentially and lead to potential animal health and welfare issues as well as potential conflicts with residents. Many cats may die due to the administration of poison, killed in road accidents, or due to untreated infections and diseases. Mass killing of cat colonies is an ineffective and inhumane way to manage a stray/feral cat population.
Working in partnership with local caregivers and welfare organisations stray/feral cats can be humanely trapped, neutered, vaccinated, treated for minor ailments and if appropriate returned to their home environment, to be cared for by caregivers in a local community. Working with local welfare organisations, cats can also be assessed for their potential for adoption if appropriate.
What we are doing
Animals Asia promotes responsible cat ownership and is working with local animal-welfare groups, vets and caring citizens to fund trap, neuter, release (TNR) programmes helping street cats integrate safely into the community. For more information on our approach click here.
We also provide advice and support to both animal protection groups and regional governments on the management of dog and cat shelters. For more information click here.
How you can help
Write a letter: Animals Asia never underestimates the power of the written word, and while a single letter or email may not seem like much, the collective expression of many people's opinions can help bring about real change.
We urge you to do all that you can to encourage the Chinese Government to ban the consumption of dogs and cats nationwide. Please write a polite letter to the Chinese Ambassador and send it to the main embassy address in your country. Embassy addresses can be found here.
