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).
Local animal welfare groups rally to help Hanzhong city dogs
Several local animal welfare groups are sending representatives to Hanzhong to gather evidence on the cull and offer their help with alternative methods of dog control. Animals Asia is sponsoring their trip and we have also offered to provide the city with free rabies vaccinations, in support of their efforts to instigate change in future animal population management practices.
Ms.Jiang Hong, the founder of Xi'an Small Animals Rescue Center, Mr. Chen（陈明才）from Chongqing Small Animal Protection Association, Ms. Qin（秦肖娜）from Capital Animal Protection Association, Ms. Du（杜玉凤）from Sichuan Guangyuan Small Animal Association, will travel to Hanzhong with three media representatives and two volunteers. They will keep us up to date with what is happening on the ground and provide us and the Shaanxi Province government with a full report on their findings.
We will update this page with regular bulletins from Hanzhong as we receive them.
