16 days to go till Christmas!

When bears are rescued from bile farms, they invariably suffer from horrendously shattered and infected teeth. Not only have they suffered from an unsuitable diet for decades on farms, but the poor bears have in many cases tried to chew their way through the metal bars of their cage. As strong as they are, a bear's teeth are no match for steel or rusted iron,...

17 days to go till Christmas!

Today's Christmas Countdown star is Dick, our China sanctuary's resident foodie. Seen here munching on a bit of what used to be a wooden toy, there isn't much Dick won't try to fill his belly with. And considering how painfully thin he was - due to malnutrition and underfeeding on a bile farm - when he arrived, we don't grudge Dick's love of food.

You did it. The bears are home - not just "for the holidays" but even more importantly they are with their family.

A family that will love, care and watch over them for many years to come.

Thank you for being part of that family. Thank you for caring.

This week these bears needed us. And we needed each other to rescue them. Now, as families do, we will protect them.

The bears will enjoy...

“It will take time but we know from experience that even bears which have suffered as much as these brave six, can recover and live out the rest of their days in comfort and peace. Our endless thanks to people across the world who joined hands with us to help – you have carried these bears home.” Jill Robinson

The #HFTHrescue bears will be home within the next 2 hours.

And as if this week...

Time to list a few festive miracles:

Our first miracle is as follows. Six bears that had each been caged for 10 years were rescued on Monday from a bile farm. The bears thought the world had forgotten them. In reality the world just needed to know they were there. And you helped. You gave, you shared their story and you were able to free them.

Our second miracle is in this video clip. Poe...

The team has fallen in love with beautiful Winter bear.

Always calm, this small bear has a missing limb, most likely from being snared in the wild.

From there her life was one of boredom on a bile farm - punctuated only by pain and abuse.

And yet here she is, the sweetest soul you could ever encounter.

Thanks to you she is coming home. Tomorrow she will arrive at our sanctuary with her...

18 days to go till Christmas!

Vietnam and China both get very hot in summer which is why we cool the bears down by giving them fruit-filled ice pops. As you can imagine, the bears absolutely love them. Each one is tasty nutritious puzzle which keeps them occupied and, most important, cool on long summer days out in the enclosure.

To contribute to the cost of some ice pops or another gift for...

RESCUE UPDATE:

It's hard to overstate what water means to a bear.

On hot days at our sanctuary, seeing furry friends soak in a pool, apparently chatting with other bears - makes the place look like a holiday resort.

If no pool is available we've seen bears sit in their water bowl.

Meanwhile, for bears that have been parched for a decade on a bile farm, a hose pipe shower is...

Loved this snippet from the road - Vet Nurse Caz is explaining that the rescued bears have been a bit grumpy and Poe's growl proves her point.

Poe is proving to be the grumpiest bear of the six. Ironically his nickname is short for Peace on Earth.

Hang on in there Poe. There will be more peaceful times ahead.

This is the third day of the #HFTHrescue, the bears will arrive back at our...

As the "home for the holidays" rescue continues and six bears are headed home to our sanctuary after being rescued from a bile farm - we're being asked: "What is a bile farm?"

It's a reminder to us that while awareness grows - there are still too few people who know about this horrific cruelty.

The link below explains it all. Beyond that what you need to know is together we can end this...

It’s been a long long day for the rescue team and bears.

Their journey started around 4.30am this morning. Along the way there have been challenges. Bears tend to relax into their trip but so far these bears are still very anxious.

Laid back Winter aside they still have their guard up. Snow wouldn’t take his meds and at varying stages today bears either weren’t eating or were being picky...

Today's Christmas Countdown star is Kevin, one of the most charming moon bears you will ever meet. He has been smiling every day since his rescue 10 years ago and living each day like it is his last. A true inspiration.

Bi Xanh, Cranberry, Winter, Ivy, Snow and Poe haven’t been bears for a very long time.

At first their natural instincts must have been silently screaming for greenery, fruit, vegetables. To forage, to climb, to dig. To eat more in autumn and snooze in winter.

In a concrete and metal cage and suffering regular bile extractions all were impossible.

You have to imagine that after a while those...

Bears on bile farms don't usually have names. We give them one when they're rescued. As an organisation an animal is never an "it" to us. They are a he or she or referred to by name. Just as people are.

We all have needs. The basics of food, health and care. Beyond that we need love. We need friends. We need some way to spend our time that interests and entertains us.

Cranberry has been...

Delicious and nutritious snacks keep the bears at our sanctuaries strong and healthy. And finding the fruit and veg, hidden lovingly thoughout the enclosures each day by our bear care team, keeps the bears mentally stimulated too. Thousands of kilogrammes of pumpkins, carrots, apples and more are snacked upon yearly – all through your generous support.

Today Animals Asia rescued six bears from a bile farm in Vietnam.

Imagine what a bile farm does to a bear.

Bile extractions damage their internal organs. Cages mean they cannot exercise. They lose mobility. Their claws don't wear down and they grow into their paws instead. This pain is excruciating and it grows year after year.

Teeth rot due to bad diet. They break due to bar...
