2009年04月17日, 00:17上午 |

The sadness we all felt that Snoopy wasn’t progressing as well as we’d hoped rippled through the sanctuary. Despite the advice to “be patient” from ophthalmologists Claudia and David of the Animal Health Trust in the UK who had so generously come over and operated on Snoopy and our other blind and partially sighted bears, I think we were all feeling a little down.

Xiao Hua is home at last

2009年04月15日, 23:53下午 |

When one of our volunteer vet nurses, the lovely Anne Letham-White, returned to her native New Zealand, she took with her much more than her amazing memories of her time with us in Chengdu. I asked Anne if she would write down her story of Xiao Hua (Litle Flower) so I could share it with you. So here, in Anne’s own words

As visiting ophthalmologists Claudia and David from Animal Health Trust are here with us on site at our sanctuary in Chengdu, so generously giving their time to bring sight back to some of our blind bears, these days were meant to be filled with wonder and joy as bears such as Snoopy will hopefully be able see for the very first time.

Four good years

The dreaded “policeman’s knock” came at 9.20am on Thursday. It was Jill on the line, her voice trembling slightly: “Oh Ange, I’m so sorry ….” I knew immediately it was Mafi.

Many voices, one passion

I wish you could have been at the Sichuan Hotel this weekend, hearing the leaders of 49 animal-welfare groups and 18 vet clinics across China speaking about the successes and struggles of rescuing animals, caring for animals – and giving animals their voice.
