Forgive me for getting straight to the point but we’ve received an urgent call about three bears in terrible trouble.
We were first alerted two weeks ago and dropped everything to prepare for the rescue as quickly as we could. I know what you’re thinking… Why are they still waiting? Travel restrictions had just been put in place due to the coronavirus which meant it wasn’t permitted or safe to go ahead. During this initial call, we made the difficult discovery that there had been four bears, but sadly one of them passed away just a week before we were contacted.
With the travel restrictions now lifted and fearing for the safety of the remaining three bears, our incredible rescue team have once again dropped everything and are racing to bring them home to sanctuary. But we need your help.
These are extraordinary times. And with more empty bear bellies to fill, more medicines to purchase, and facing months of high costs because of the coronavirus, we need your help now more than ever to bring these bears home.
We currently know very little about the three bears. But their lives have certainly been no fairytale. They were discovered trapped in tiny, depressing metal cages side by side. We dread to think how long they’ve been like this…
Despite limited information, we can be almost certain that they’ll have serious health issues and need special ongoing care and treatment for the rest of their lives. Which we hope could be another 15 years or more.
Please, will you help these sweet bears on the road to recovery and beyond by setting up a monthly donation?
Help to bring them home with a donation:
It’ll take our team around four hours to reach the site in Nam Dinh Province and we hope to arrive on Tuesday morning (Vietnam time). I promise to keep you updated on their progress and to bring you more information soon.

As always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for Asia’s animals when they need you most. Please stay safe during this difficult and challenging time.
With bear hugs of gratitude and of hope,

PS This is only the beginning.
PPS Big bear hugs of thanks for your continued support. Without you, Animals Asia wouldn’t be where we are today. And so many of Asia’s abused animals would never have been found and brought to safety. You should feel proud of the incredible difference you make.
