Micro art with big heart

26 May 2009, 22:45PM |

In something almost impossible to describe, all of us at the Chengdu bear sanctuary have just been witness to an incredible art form dating back 3,000 years.


It was hard not to cry meeting Deng Yu Rui for the first time. His father had died in the earthquake last May, and his mother had tragically lost three of her limbs, but Deng's face beamed as he met his new four-legged best friends.

Our staff around the world are nothing short of incredible, tirelessly working behind the scenes and injecting professionalism and integrity into the heart of our campaigns.

The rain poured down, the guests flowed in, and our hearts soared as our beautiful Vietnam bears experienced the simple joy of walking on grass for the first time.

A quick blog today, but one with grateful thanks to another of our unsung heroes on staff. Our Chef Li Damu and his team are always there when the new bears arrive – working in the kitchen late into the night to ensure the rescue team have nourishing hot food at the end of a long and stressful day.


Refreshment anyone?

I love going to our sanctuary in Vietnam. These days I spend much of my time at our China sanctuary, which is well-established, mature and heaving with happy, bouncing bears – but Vietnam is glorious too.


A new life for Richter

Remember Richter, the terrified retriever we found crouching and abandoned in a filthy cage in a pet shop just days after the Sichuan earthquake last May?


Flying the flag

Harriet Tung is in the news again -- and thanks to Harriet, so too are our bears! When Hong Kong's "Prestige" magazine featured our celebrity supporter in its magazine, much of the article was devoted to Animals Asia and the rescue.


A big THANK YOU from Snoops!

As our gorgeous Snoopy explores her new world of sight, please let me say a huge thank you of behalf of the whole team (and of course, Snoopy) for all your messages of support. Snoops was especially chuffed with her “Get Well Soon” cards ;-)
