Oh man. Sometimes you just get a little emotional seeing people turn out for animals. Witness this scene in Hong Kong this morning as these amazing people turn up with their equally amazing dogs.

Human and tail-waggingly chuffed furry friends look so happy to be out in the fresh air having fun and exercise for such an incredible cause.

There's never a day goes by when we don't believe we...

LOVE LOVE LOVE that our friend and funnyman Dave Spikey gave us a mention in this recent interview where he talks about his trip to our sanctuary in Vietnam:

"The visit was incredible. Three words: emotional roller coaster. There were highs, but also many lows. In Vietnam, the cruel, evil practice of extracting bile from these beautiful bears is now supposed to be illegal. But many farms...

"When we talk about conservation and of saving animals – who exactly are we saving from them from, if not this awful spectacle?"

Delighted for orangutan Michael. He should never have been forced to 'work' this way and deserves so much better than the small cage he has endured so far in his short life. Thankfully, things are set to get better for him.

When injustices like this are exposed, change can happen, which is exactly why we sponsor groups to expose cases like this. We'll keep an eye on Michael's progress to...

The first rays of spring sun have been spotted at our Vietnam sanctuary and the bears have taken the opportunity to enjoy the first pool party of the year. Four moon bear buddies, Bosley, Sharky, Polly and Hartley cooled off, wrestled, swam, splashed and generally had a ball together in their sanctuary pool. This will become an increasingly common sight as the weather heats up but the first...

A joyful message from rescued moon bear Foxi at our Vietnam sanctuary. We wish this little darling the very best in his one and only life which he cherishes as much as we do our own. May you have many more days of happiness ahead, Foxi.
He's back! This time #MoonBearHero, American Kai Madden will be donning his legendary moon bear suit to take part in the London Marathon.

We cannot overstate what an incredible person Kai is - just take a look at this video. Ask yourself at what point you might have given up. Kai says he takes his inspiration from the bears themselves who stoically face cruelty day after day. He won't stop...

Looks like moon bear Kroenchen can feel spring in the air at our China sanctuary. This gorgeous bear is known to be a little grumpy, but has clearly let her hair down to swing into spring.

Have a great weekend!
It wouldn't be right to celebrate St Patrick's Day without sparing a thought for lovely moon bear Shamrock. It's been four years since she was rescued from a bile farm in China, and sponsored by a local Irish bar who gave her the beautiful name.

Shamrock lives with males Peter and Jonah and two other females, Erdi and Longo. Her carers describe Shamrock as "that girl" - the one who wants all...

For those dealing with the same issues in China the...

Oh Kaffe - you finally have what you've always wanted.

Poor Kaffe endured nine years alone in a cage as an exotic pet before being rescued by Animals Asia last Autumn. At first making friends was tough - he just didn't know how - but this picture of him cuddling his new friends will melt your heart.

Animals Asia's Bear Manager Kelly Donithan was pivotal to introducing Kaffe to his new family...

This is so sad. New footage of Indonesia's dolphin circuses shows the poor animals spend large amounts of time out of the water and often in very dangerous positions. Clearly their welfare is not taken into account in any way.

FLASHBACK: This is how we found poor sun bear Kaffe last autumn. He had been in that cage for nine years, kept as an exotic pet.

In our last update he was finally out on grass, but struggling to integrate with his fellow bears. And who could blame him - he had simply never done it before: [ Animalsasia.org Link ]

But later this week we'll have more to share about this amazing bear and his...

The future is much brighter for her and the many other stray cats helped by our Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) programmes in China - widely acknowledged as the most humane, effective and financially sustainable strategy for controlling stray cat populations and...
