Woo Hoo! Finished our 2017 puzzle, raising $11,000

Woo Hoo! We’re all finished! Thank you everyone for your support! But if you’re thinking “Bother, I missed out…”  then don’t worry!!! You can still donate a pot of honey!!
It was so coooool this year because the final pieces were donated on the same day as the anniversary (Dec 14 2010) of raising the initial money to rescue me!!
Thank you to ALL my supporters!
Love YOUR bear, Jigsaw

Historic agreement between Animals Asia and Vietnam government to shut down the bear bile industry!

Best news ever for Vietnam’s moon bears was announced in August: a Memorandum of Understanding with Vietnam’s government that makes it illegal for private households to keep moon bears in captivity. This should bring an end to the horrific bear bile industry in Vietnam forever.
The 1000 bears currently caught up in this industry will need to find new homes in sanctuaries by 2023. These sanctuaries need to be built…. and that means $$ – OUR DONATIONS are needed more than ever to help make this happen as quickly as possibly.
