How It All Began
20 years ago, on 17 April 1993, is when it all began - when Jill first walked onto a bear bile farm. Click here to read what - or rather who - inspired Jill to dedicate her life to ending bear bile farming - UNTIL THE CRUELTY ENDS
The Glasgow & Loch Lomond Animals Asia support group was set up in July 2011 The aim of this group is to raise awareness, and to raise funds for the vital work of the Animals Asia Foundation
We have three flagship programmes: End Bear Farming, Cat and Dog Welfare and Action Against Cruelty. Under these, we have many campaigns, including the Moon Bear Rescue aimed at bringing the barbaric practice of bear farming and the bile trade to an end. To find out more, and to read about the latest rescues, please visit www.animalsasia.org Virginia McKenna, co-founder of the Born Free Foundation, has written a poem about her visit to a bear farm - you can listen to an mp3 version of "The Darkest Day"
If you fancy getting involved, and can spare some time to help tortured bears, dogs and cats in China and Vietnam please contact us, or just come along to our next support group meeting. You don’t need any special skills, just a willingness to help. We work hard, but have lots of fun too - check out our photo gallery!
