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

Historic Step forward in Traditional Medicine for Vietnam

REMEMBER Tuesday September 22 2015 as a very special and auspicious day indeed! Today Animals Asia signed a pledge with the Vietnamese Traditional Medicine Association to end the use of bear bile in traditional medicine by 2020. This has been achieved through the co-operative endeavours of TMA Vietnam & Animals Asia including the collection of scientific data highlighting the detrimental and often deadly effects of using infected bile plus delivery of educational programmes and literature for medical practitioners, highlighting the successful substitution of herbal alternatives. Their concerted efforts are reflected in the reduction in numbers of practitioners still using bear bile.

Signing the pledge!

Eight of Jigsaw’s supporters are currently in Vietnam and about visit Jigsaw and his bear buddies!

But to be invited to join in the witnessing of this historic day was an extraordinary privilege!
