Thank You, From Jill Robinson and Animals Asia Foundation

Wanted to share this. I did a screenshot of the email but it was too small to read once posted to the blog, so I copy/pasted it below and then included the screenshot. I blocked out my middle and last name to protect my own privacy. Thank you again to everyone who participated with Elysium Dances for the Bears.

The email said:

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for supporting our projects. Your kind donation will go directly to helping our animal welfare initiatives in Asia.

End Bear Bile Farming: The barbaric bear bile trade sees over 10,000 bears – mainly moon bears but also sun bears and brown bears – kept on bile farms in China, and around 1200 in Vietnam. Most farmed bears are kept in tiny cages for up to 30 years. Animals Asia works to end this cruel practice, which continues despite the availability of effective and affordable herbal and synthetic alternatives.

Cat and Dog Welfare: Through our Cat and Dog Welfare programme, we work to end the trade in dogs and cats for food in China, and lobby to improve the welfare of companion animals and promote humane population management.

Captive Animal Welfare: Through our Captive Animal Welfare programme, we work to end abusive practices such as circus-style animal performances, feeding live prey to predators for the amusement of audiences, and using wild animals as photographic props. We also provide training to improve animal management and veterinary skills, and work to increase awareness of the welfare needs of captive animals.

We are happy to enclose your official receipt. Again, thank you for your generosity – the support of donors like you is crucial for helping us continue with our work.

To stay informed about our work, please visit our website, which is packed with information on all of our projects. You can also keep up to date via my blog, or our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

From all of us at the Animals Asia team, our grateful thanks and appreciation.

With enormous bear hugs,

Jill Robinson

Animals Asia, Founder and CEO
