I'm so glad to have come across Animals Asia Foundation. If you click the images below you'll be taken to their website and swept off your feet on a feel good journey as they show you all the ways they're making a difference in the lives of animals. No matter where you live, you can take part in their organization and help their rescued animals live a better life.

"The Animals Asia Foundation, which has been attempting to end the exploitation of all animals for years, recorded a video cataloging the abuses of animals in China. The animals are made to live lives of pain, misery and fear. They are whipped, beaten, declawed, and have their teeth ripped out. Elephants are prodded with electric shocks during training sessions. Black bears are guided and pulled around by cables inserted into their nostrils. According to the narrator of the video, Terry Waite, "Like with any form of torture, they either succumb or die."
Below are pictures and info about another bear rescue. AnimalsAsia.org is doing a great job helping animals in need. I recommend bookmarking their website and following their wonderful work.
"Ask not what an animal can do for you; ask what you can do for an animal." Jasper
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
