August 2016: our annual Munro Challenge takes us up Ben More (Crianlarich) this year, and is an official Animals Asia event (https://www.facebook.com/events/1748373445444238/ ) We can do with all the encouragement we can get to get to the top of the mountain, and any sponsorship you are able to give will help us up - and of course support the vital work of Animals Asia! When making a donation please mention in the comments who you are sponsoring, and that it's for the Ben More trek. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
The Scotland Animals Asia Support Group was formed in January 2015 by amalgamating all Scottish support groups. We are a group of volunteers raising awareness and funds for Animals Asia in our area. We have stalls at various events in Scotland, do street & station collections, and we also organise our own fundraisers. We also sell merchandise designed specially for us by an Animals Asia supporter in Germany, who uses photos he took at Animals Asia's sanctuary to create his merchandise.
ABOUT ANIMALS ASIA (copied from www.animalsasia.org):
Founded in 1998, Animals Asia promotes compassion and respect for all animals and works to bring about long-term change. We work to end the barbaric bear bile trade, which sees over 10,000 bears kept on bile
farms in China, and, according to official figures, about 1,200
suffering the same fate in Vietnam.
Animals Asia has rescued over 500 bears, caring for them at its award-winning bear sanctuaries in China and Vietnam.Animals Asia also works to end the trade in dogs and cats for food in China and Vietnam, and lobbies to improve the welfare of companionanimals, promote humane population management and prevent the cross border export of "meat dogs" in Asia.
In addition, Animals Asia campaigns for an end to abusive animal practices in zoos and safari parks in Asia, and works closely with
governing authorities to improve animal management and increase
awareness of the welfare needs of captive animals.
