Help Viktor and Viktorija to stay safe

The Story

Time passes, 4 years pass while they are in the pension and left on waiting. I do not know exactly why they have no luck.

We are already tired of waiting. Unfortunately, on the picture you can not see how good they are and cuddly, they looks like an ordinary street yellow dogs. Maybe because that no one asks for them.

They are not demanding, they are wonderful brother and sister who are hold together, love other dogs, like people, love to play and love attention.

Victor and Victoria have 4 years, they are vaccinated and healthy, castration sterilization was performed. We search for home from the pension for which we need 60e month, Our food is our 20e for month. Help is needed every month.

We are grateful if you can help.

The Beautiful But Sad Bear Who Currently Cannot Find The Courage To Go Outside – Something She Has Never Done.

 

Animals Asia Vietnam Bear and Vet Team Director Heidi Quine said:

“It’s hard to explain just how incredible these small steps are for a bear as troubled as Annemarie. We’d absolutely love nothing more than to see her outside in the sunshine with the other bears, but we are letting her dictate the pace she’s comfortable with.

“It’s been a massive effort to get her to this point, but we’re all determined not to give up until Annemarie has the peace of mind she needs to step out from the shadow of her tragic past.”

 

What a beautiful looking little bear – you are safe now little one and all your friends are waiting for you; please go outside and enjoy yourself.

Vietnam: 19/7/17 – Breaking News – Animals Asia And The Government Sign Agreement To End ALL Bear Bile Farming – The Next Step: Sanctuaries For Over 1,000 Bears To Be Rescued. Brilliant Jill !!

 

 

 

BREAKING NEWS: Vietnam agrees plan to close all bear bile farms.

19 July 2017

In a historic move the Vietnamese government has agreed a plan with Animals Asia to finally end bear bile farming in the country.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlines an agreement between animal welfare NGO Animals Asia and the Vietnam Administration of Forestry  (VNFOREST) to work together to rescue the remaining bears still caged on farms across Vietnam – believed to be around 1,000.

The document was signed and announced at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in Hanoi on Wednesday 19 July.

Mr Cao Chi Cong, Deputy General Director of the Vietnam Administration of Forestry, under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, joined Animals Asia CEO and founder Jill Robinson MBE in signing the MOU.

The move follows the MOU between Animals Asia and the Vietnamese Traditional Medicine Association signed in 2015, agreeing to ensure a complete end to bear bile prescription among traditional medicine practitioners by 2020

This is anticipated to continue a significant reduction in demand and contribute towards the ending of the illegal market for bear bile.

Today’s agreement is effectively one that will finally close the loophole that has allowed bile farms to continue despite the illegality of the trade.

The MOU commits the government to ensuring no bears are allowed to be kept by private households – where illegal bile extraction can take place – and that the approximately 1,000 bears currently held in captivity around the country are moved to sanctuaries.

Animals Asia’s Vietnam Director Tuan Bendixsen said:

“This historic document ties NGOs and the government of Vietnam to a common goal – the end of bear bile farming in Vietnam.

“Crucially, the government has agreed to close the loophole that has allowed bile farming to persist for the last decade. By signing this MOU, they have agreed that there can be no bears kept on farms, because as long as they are there, they will suffer extraction.”

Animals Asia has so far rescued 186 bears in Vietnam since setting up its sanctuary in Tam Dao in 2008.

Bear bile farming has been illegal in Vietnam since 1992. In 2006, every bear in captivity was microchipped so that no new bears could be added to farms. But with the country lacking resources and expertise to build rescue centres and care for the animals, households were allowed to keep the bears on the government’s behalf having agreed not to extract bile. This loophole has effectively allowed bear bile farming to continue until now.

Since bear bile farming became a common practice in China and Vietnam in the 1980s, wild populations have been decimated to meet the demand the industry created.

A report by Animals Asia and Free The Bears released in 2016 found that wild populations across South East Asia had fallen dramatically with precious few pockets of wild bears existing in Vietnam today.  It had been wrongly anticipated that farming bears would actually help conserve wild bears.

In 2005 bear bile farming reached its peak in Vietnam with over 4,000 bears in captivity, but with farmers unable to add new bears to existing stocks, numbers have dwindled to around 1,000.

Tuan said:

“This agreement shows Vietnam acknowledges that bear bile farming harms wild populations. By signing on, they’ve shown they are serious about conserving the country’s remaining wild bears and protecting the heritage of future generations.”

While the signing of a memorandum of understanding is a landmark achievement in the battle to end bear bile farming cruelty, it will not mean an overnight end to the industry in Vietnam.

Key issues such as how to fund and manage the sanctuaries and how to proceed with the transfer of privately owned bears to rescue centres will be hammered out as part of the agreement.

It’s anticipated that new sanctuaries would need to be constructed and assistance sought from existing sanctuaries run by animal conservation and welfare charities.

Animals Asia’s Founder and CEO, Jill Robinson MBE said:

“This agreement has been a long time coming with discussions beginning around 2014, so to see it finalised is a major step forward. This, of course, doesn’t end the work. Quite the opposite, but it now means we work together with a common goal – to end this cruelty. 

“With all parties pulling in the right direction and in agreement about our goals we can make real progress. For the animals who have suffered for more than a decade in awful conditions the move to sanctuaries cannot come soon enough and that is the next issue – how to fund, build and manage the new sanctuaries which are necessary to rescue all bears.

“We’ve essentially sat down with the government and made a list of what needs to be completed to end bear bile farming and agreed to work through these issues together.

“It is still a huge undertaking and will require the participation of many groups, NGOs, government departments and the support of animal lovers in general to make this agreement reality, but pivotally we are all in agreement about what has to be done and now we can get on with seeing it through.”

Australia: Petition – Stop The Government Forcing Animal Rescue Charity To Pay $300,000 For Road Upgrades.

 

This week our good friends at Farm Animal Rescue were forced to go public with a petition calling on the Queensland Government to abandon its plans to force the charity to pay $300,000 for road upgrades!

Farm Animal Rescue (FAR) is a registered charity and sanctuary for animals that have been rescued from starvation, danger, and abuse. We can’t speak highly enough of the work the team at FAR do for the animals.

The Government has made the decision to ban visitors from Farm Animal Rescue unless they spend $300,000 adding an additional lane to Dayboro Road, a highway managed by Queensland Transport and Main Roads. With the charity unable to come up with such a huge amount of money, it would mean an end to visitors like you at the sanctuary, and make the future of the sanctuary uncertain. 

Please sign the petition, spread the word and keep an eye on social media for further steps you can take to help save FAR in the coming weeks!

For the animals,
Chay and the team at Animal Liberation Queensland

Serbia: Help Rescued Pozega Dogs Get Well After Their Hellhole Suffering.

 

https://www.facebook.com/PozegaDogsAdoptionPage/

 

LOZNICA RESCUES NEED HELP WITH THEIR VACCINATION’S, SPAYING’S AND NEUTERING’S:  LET’S DO THIS RIGHT FOR THESE DOGS!

After those celebrating moments when we had your breathtaking support and we were fighting together to save as many lives as possible, came the time when isolation period was over and the need for vaccinations, testings, spaying’s and neutering’s has started.

All 49 last saved  dogs plus almost 90 previously rescued are now ready for their first vaccination against infectious diseases and each every one of them needs 4D testings, ultra sounds, neutering’s and spaying’s.

WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF SPAYING’S AND NEUTERING’S, BUT WE WERE FORCED TO STOP AS ALL FUNDS ARE AT THE ROCK BOTTOM, CONSUMED BY THE COSTS OF THE RESCUE AND IMMEDIATE AFTERCARE AT THE VETS.

Many of the dogs who were already brutally butchered with primitive surgery in the kill shelter, need their neuter and spaying redone properly. On the top of our worries, that time of year has come and many unspayed females are currently in the heat, which makes our kennels very hard to control – and males clash.

WE CANNOT DO ANY OF THIS WITHOUT YOUR VERY KIND CONTINUED HELP AND SUPPORT .

For Your kind donations, PayPal address: humanimalserbia@gmail.com  or  just click the PayPal button bellow:

The cost of each vaccine is 12.50 euros, the cost of each 4D test is 20 euros and the cost of reworking the tens of botched neutering and spayings varies from 25 euros up to 90 euros for some of the badly botched females to be redone and cleared of infections, plus 20 euros for previous ultra sounds.

It is a lot when numbers add. It is a lot for anyone to do this alone. But, we are not alone!

WE HAVE YOU! THE GREATEST DOG LOVER TEAM IN THE WORLD AND TOGETHER WE ALREADY MANAGED MIRACLES TO HAPPEN. WE CAN DO IT AGAIN!
PLEASE HELP US TO DO THIS RIGHT!

We are desperate to raise the funding now to continue with what needs to be done next. Can you help them go to their forever homes. Any donation, no matter how tiny, helps a dog in our care.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT BOTH PAST AND PRESENT. YOU REALLY ARE THE BACKBONE OF OUR RESCUE. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.

THANK YOU. X
