My 2017 puzzle is Off and Running

Woo Hoo!  Off we go!
My new puzzle is a beauty! Thanks to this fabulous snap from Animals Asia.

(heh heh! Of course, I’m used to being photographed now as this is my 8th puzzle!)

Sal hopes to raise at least $11,000 this year which means I am close to being a “zero-cost” bear for Animals Asia.

This means more money from other donors can be used to help Animals Asia rescue more bears!

Woo Hoo! My 2016 puzzle is completed!

HUGE thank you’s from me and Jigsaw!!! Our commitment to cover all of Jigsaw’s annual living expenses and share of sanctuary costs is a huge burden lifted off the shoulders of Animals Asia. Your care and generosity always overwhelms me ….. and of course, DELIGHTS Jigsaw!!  If you haven’t already donated, don’t feel that you have missed out! Jigsaw is always up for some extra “presents” under his Christmas tree which he will happily share with the newly rescued bears – some of whom are desperately in love of TLC xxx

13 bears rescued as Quang Ninh province declares the bear-bile farm industry closed – Hopefully the remaining bears will follow soon.

In November 2014 Animals Asia stepped up its campaign to rescue 49 bears being kept in appalling conditions on bile farms, in the renowned World Heritage area of Halong Bay in the province of Quang Ninh…

But by March 2015, 30 bears had already died, leaving 19.

But then (also in March), the Quang Ninh provincial government suddenly decreed that all bear-bile farms in the region (including Halong Bay) would be closed and the remaining 38 bears across the province (including the remaining 19 above) would be given into the care of Animals Asia sanctuary. Alas the wheels turn slowly and more bears have died while the authorities sort it out with the not-very-cooperative bear farmers.

Already 26 bears out of 27 had died on one farm, thankfully the last remaining bear was amongst the lucky ones to be rescued this past week. His name Song Sot means Last Survivor. We can only hope that he does…
Two bears required a Sea Rescue!

Animals Asia founder Jill Robinson wrote: My heart broke when I saw the awful condition of these two bears. Simon is a bear you can’t help but fall in love with, but his condition is just pitiful. He can barely stand and his teeth were literally falling out of his head. He’s a broken bear …..”

A further 10 bears were successfully removed to safety by end of last week in June but 2 bears were not released by their farmers. Reluctantly Animals Asia staff had to leave them behind – hopefully the chance to rescue them will come very soon.

Below is “Possum” showing just how life SHOULD be for a moon bear.
With your support we can make this come true!  Please donate to Jigsaw’s Bear Care Club @ Adoptamoonbear today!
