Bears and countless more animals deserve better
Help us end bear baiting and animal cruelty by making a special gift today
Dear Friend of the Animals,
Picture this: as a child or young teen, would you want to be chained, pierced, poked, teased, tortured, and attacked by dogs throughout much of your life?
I’m sure your answer is no. No living creature should be subjected to such cruelty.
Yet, this describes the practice of bear baiting – a vicious bloodsport where bears are pitted against dogs in sometimes mortal combat. Bears are often reared from youth for baiting events, to live out the rest of their lives for the purpose of entertainment.
Leena – a five-year old Asiatic black bear – is one such bear. But, thanks to our supporters, she has been spared. She is now thriving in our partner sanctuary in Balkasar, Pakistan.
Donor support has helped us save more than 80 bears from baiting events in the last 20 years. Yet, the sad reality is that there are still many more bears who are subjected to this cruel, inhumane practice. Bear baiting must be stopped.
We urgently need your help to end bear baiting. Your special gift today of $25, $40, $60, or whatever you can manage will help sustain life-saving animal protection programs around the globe – helping us protect bears like Leena and countless more animals from unnecessary anguish in communities, in farming, in the wild, and in natural disasters.
I know you will do what you can to help save animals from unimaginable suffering. Take a few moments to reflect on all of the animals whose lives you can change forever. For Leena and other animals near and far, please make a special gift today.

PS – We have much to celebrate, and also much more work to do. Your donation now – whether a special one-time gift or monthly commitment – could help save more bears like Leena and thousands of other animals worldwide from a life of pain and distress. Thank you for your support.
