The 1990s was a dark chapter for moon bears in Vietnam. Thousands of bears were stolen from the wild as cubs, subjected to painful bile extraction, sent to circuses or caged as exotic pets.
QQ is one of those bears. She’s been trapped in a rusty metal cage since 1998, merely existing for 25 miserable years. It’s hard to imagine what that must have been like.
Will you join us in this urgent rescue mission and give QQ the life she deserves? Your donation today can help provide her with a second chance at happiness, freedom and love.
Tragically, many bears haven’t survived these years of torment. But QQ held on. Now it's our mission to race to rescue her and the last generation of bears still suffering in cages across Vietnam.
Together, we can rewrite QQ's story and ensure that no bear endures such cruelty ever again.
Your donation today can make a difference. Help us bring QQ and other bears like her home to sanctuary, to live the life they were meant to.

After 21 miserable years on a terrible bile farm, moon bears Armstrong and Buzz have finally been rescued.
This was no ordinary rescue. Armstrong and Buzz are the very first bears to find home at our brand new Animals Asia sanctuary in Vietnam’s Bach Ma National Park.
But the hard work must continue. The sanctuary is not yet complete. And there are still around 300 bears just like Armstrong and Buzz suffering on bile farms.
They urgently need your help. Will you donate today and help launch the final push to end bear bile farming in Vietnam?
We’re so close to shutting down Vietnam’s last bear bile farms and rescuing the innocent bears who have endured so much for so long. But we can’t do it without you.
Will you help make history? Donate today.
Two desperate moon bears are about to be rescued from a terrible bile farm in Vietnam. They’ve been suffering terrible abuse for nearly two decades. Now, their new home at our sanctuary in Bach Ma National Park is almost ready, but your help is urgently needed to bring them to safety.
Will you send a donation today and help bring the first Bach Ma bears home?
We've nick-named these two beautiful bears Armstrong and Buzz after the brave astronauts who took that historic "giant leap."
This is more than just a bear rescue. These bears will be the first of many to be rescued to the brand new Animals Asia sanctuary in Bach Ma National Park. This is a historic moment for Vietnam… the beginning of the end of the awful practice of bear bile farming.
We’re so close. But we cannot achieve this dream without you.
Please, donate today and help rescue Armstrong and Buzz, and help make history in the process.
Bear cub Wonder had a horrific start to life. Snatched from the wild by a trafficker and torn away from her mother’s arms. Trapped in a cage so tiny that she could hardly move.
But thankfully, sweet Wonder narrowly escaped a terrible fate and is now safe at our sanctuary. She’s already stolen the hearts of our loving team there. Will you make a donation today to help look after Wonder?
You’ll help Wonder get everything she needs for a life filled with joy. It costs around $35$48£25€30$272 a week for food alone. There’s also many other additional expenses like expert healthcare and a place to play.
We made a promise to Wonder that we’d care and be there for her for the rest of her life. This could be around 30 years of life filled with happiness. But we can’t do it alone. Will you help us keep our promise to provide life-long care for this sweet cub?
Give a life-changing gift to baby Wonder.
We need your help. On November 8th Uong Bi Police in Vietnam confiscated a terrified bear cub from wildlife traders in the Quang Ninh province.
This poor soul was stuffed into a birdcage after being ripped from his mother’s arms. We dread to think what would have happened to him.
Quang Ninh is the same province you helped us make bear bile farm free in 2015. This is all thanks to your astonishing support and the quick actions of the authorities. But we still need your help to make sure it stays this way.
For this brave little cub, his journey has only just begun. After everything he’s been through, he will need lifetime care at our sanctuary in Vietnam. Will you become a member of our Bear Rescue Team with a monthly donation today?
It costs around $35$48£25€30$272 a week just to feed a bear. This doesn’t include the additional costs of expert healthcare and the ability to offer them a life filled with joy, a place to play and room to grow. We can’t do this with you.
Will you join our Bear Rescue Team and provide life-long care for sweet Yen who deserves to be safe and loved?
* Thank you to the Uong Bi Police for their quick thinking and commendable actions that helped us bring this cub home to sanctuary.
We urgently need your help. On 29 November, Tủa Chùa Forest Protection Department* in Vietnam confiscated a bear cub who was being trafficked across the border. They contacted Animals Asia immediately and asked us to rescue this poor soul.
As you can see, this terrified little bear is being kept in a tiny cage. We don’t know much else about them. We don’t even know if they’re a boy or a girl. We do know they’ll be terrified and we do know they’ll have been poached from the wild and cruelly stolen from their mother.
Will you make a donation to help rescue this frightened and confused cub from any further harm?
A gift today from you could help bring this beautiful baby moon bear to Animals Asia’s sanctuary.
Here, they’ll receive all the love and care they need for the rest of their life. Moon bears can live for up to 35 years, so will you consider becoming a monthly donor to help us look after this bear cub for as long as it takes?
Join our Bear Rescue Team and you can save this bear from a terrible fate. Please, give what you can today.
* Thank you to Tủa Chùa FPD for their quick thinking and actions, and for helping us bring this bear cub home to sanctuary.
Bile farming is about to end in Vietnam – forever.
There are as many as 400 bears waiting to be saved. But with the recent rescue of little lost moon bear cub Marvel, there’s now only 10 rescue places left at our Vietnam sanctuary.
We urgently need your help...
This festive season, will you donate to make sure Vietnam’s last surviving bile bears have a safe place to go?
Marvel is the third cub kind supporters like you have helped bring to sanctuary in as many months. Showing that we need to end bear bile farming as soon as possible.
Until then, bear cubs are at risk of being ripped from their mothers and wilds homes and trafficked into the bile trade.
Right now, the lives of hundreds of bears hang delicately in the balance. They’re waiting and hoping for your love to reach them before it’s too late.
We need to complete the first phase of the build as soon as possible to be ready for the next desperate bear or two or 10 in need of rescue and rehabilitation.
Please, don’t delay. Give today to help build a safe sanctuary for precious bile farm survivors and ensure no bear is left behind.
In mid-December we received a call from our friends at Hanoi Wildlife Rescue Centre, Vietnam. They asked if we were able to rehome six rescued bears currently in their care.
Of course, we jumped at the chance to give six more lost souls their forever home.
We don’t know much about them yet, except that they’re five moon bears and one sun bear.
Will you help look after these bears with a kind donation today? A gift from you could help give these bears the love and care they deserve, long into the future.
We’re only able to jump into action at a moment’s notice thanks to generous donations from people like you. So please, if you’re able, send a loving gift today to help us provide the best care for these six beautiful bears.
We’ve just received an urgent call about two moon bears in need of help.
We don’t know much about them yet.
What we do know is that one is a little lost cub. Found in a garden and thought to be the victim of wildlife trafficking. Likely ripped from their mother, who would have fought to the death to protect them.
The other is a beautiful adult bear who could have suffered for over a decade, caged alone in a dark room and abused for their bile.
Will you donate today to help us rush to their aid and bring them home to safety?
Right now, we have two Bear Rescue Teams preparing to reach them. But we need your help.
Rescue operations like this require quick planning and a lot of resources. It’s expensive but essential work. This is why your support today is so desperately needed.
Please, donate today to help our Bear Rescue Teams race to the rescue of these poor traumatised bears and bring them home to sanctuary.
Last week, we received an urgent call about two moon bears in desperate need of help.
Thanks to the kindness of supporters like you, our Bear Rescue Team raced to reach and rescue both bears, plus rescue two more male moon bear cubs once we arrived, and bring them to the safety of our Vietnam sanctuary.
But they need your help to heal from their terrible ordeal.
Please, will you donate today to help provide expert veterinary care and medicines, nutritious foods and exciting toys?
Little lost bear cub, Bamboo, was found wandering in someone's garden. Almost certainly a victim of wildlife trafficking, Bamboo and the cubs Nhien and Nhi, would have been ripped from her mother, who likely fought to the death to protect them.
In a neighbouring province of Vietnam, beautiful moon bear Plum was rescued from in a rusty cage in a small, dark outbuilding. She had been here for 15 years, drugged and jabbed with needles to extract her bile for use in medicine. It’s difficult to imagine the trauma this survivor bear has experienced.
But we urgently need your help…
With 30 years of life ahead of them, Bamboo and the cubs will need tender loving care to grow into confident, independent adult bears. And Plum will need specialist medical treatment to heal from the terrible toll bile farming takes on a bear’s body.
With your support, we can give Bamboo, Nhien, Nhi and Plum everything they need to live a happy and healthy life. And you’ll get to watch proudly as these brave bears grow in confidence and make friends, knowing your love helped them on their way.
Please donate today to help these precious bears in their own special way.

Thanks to kind people like you, seven desperate moon bears have just been rescued from a bear bile farming hotspot in Vietnam. That’s another bear bile farm shut down for good.

These incredible survivors have been named after different types of lotus flowers: Clear Moon, King, Lavender, Perry, Cherry, Carolina, and Scarlet.

They urgently need your help to heal. Please, donate today to kickstart their recovery.
Frightened, alone, malnourished, hurting. It’s heartbreaking to imagine what this poor moon bear has been through.
She’s a beautiful big female who’s tragically being held prisoner on a bile farm in Nam Dinh province, Vietnam. We’ve called her Paddington and we believe she’s been in this cage for 17 agonizing years. She’s been subjected to unimaginable suffering.

And just like Paddington, this poor bear has been subjected to unimaginable suffering and abuse. All so their bile can be stolen and used in traditional medicine.
This brave survivor bear has been named Marmalade… and they urgently need your help to break free from their cage and leave this nightmare behind them.

Will you send a vital donation today and join our Bear Rescue Team to bring them home to safety?

This could be a matter of life and death. Every second counts.
Please, send an urgent donation today and help bring them home.
