Male monitor lizards are cruelly trapped, killed, and illegally-traded, before their penises are sold on the likes of Amazon, eBay, and Etsy.

The penises are fraudulently passed off as 'Hatha Jodi', a plant root believed by some to bring good luck.

We're asking major online retailers, who unknowingly sell these items, to remove them from their websites.

After rumours it would be banned, we're disappointed dog meat will still be sold at the notorious #Yulin festival, which starts this week.

Dogs' suffering in Yulin is brutal. They'll have spent their last days in tiny cages, and wait in fear as they watch other dogs be skinned alive.

This cruelty must end, both in China and other countries across the globe.

This is Elulu the goat. We met him in Kalawana village where we're helping animals get back on their feet after the catastrophic #SriLankaFloods.

Elulu sprained his ankle during the disaster and is limping heavily. But luckily our vets assessed his health, and reassured his owners he'll recover well.

Life for tens of thousands of pigs is set to improve, as a landmark agreement is signed in China to make conditions better on farms.

This shows a shift in the right direction from China’s pig industry, which we welcome.

Positive momentum for pigs is growing in Brazil and Chile too, where 22,000 people have supported our #ChangePigsLives campaign.

Born as the #SriLankaFloods were unfolding, Zebu the calf was just six days old when we met him last week.

Despite coming into the world at a time of crisis, care from his owner, mother, and vets, has given him a chance at life.

Zebu, Elulu, and their farm-mates are just some of the thousands of animals we’re medically treating, feeding, and caring for in Sri Lanka.

By providing emergency vet kits for farm animals and pets, we're also helping the people who rely so heavily on them.
