Animals Asia

About the charity

Animals Asia is an animal charity devoted to ending the practice of bear bile farming and improving the welfare of animals in China and Vietnam. The organisation promotes compassion and respect for all animals and works to bring about long-term change. Founded in 1998, the Animals Asia team has been rescuing moon bears since 1994 and is the only organisation with a bear sanctuary in China. Today, Animals Asia has rescued over 400 bears, caring for them at its award-winning bear sanctuaries in China and Vietnam.

Stella’s charity partnership

In 2013, Stella McCartney designed a unique t-shirt in partnership with Animals Asia. All proceeds from the sale of these t-shirts has gone towards saving and caring for moon bears, and striving to end the practice of bear bile farming. The t-shirt features a grizzly bear along with a small red love heart.
