Animals Asia at Pup Aid 2013

Members of the London Animals Asia Support Group will be manning the Animals Asia stall at this year’s Pup Aid at Primrose Hill together with Animals Asia staff.

This is a fantastic event, brainchild of TV vet Marc Abraham also known as Marc the Vet and the largest puppy party in the world I believe.  There are charity stalls, commercial doggy type stalls and a great variety of celebrity judged fun dog competitions.  The purpose of the event, other than it being a fun day, is to raise awareness of the horrendous puppy farms we have here in the UK.  A lot of people still don’t know that puppies they buy online or in a pet shop will be from puppy farms, even if they buy them in well known and expensive department stores.

Please come and see us and support both Animals Asia and Pup Aid.

If you haven’t signed Marc’s petition to ban the sale of puppies and kittens without their mothers present, please sign this too and share widely http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/49528

Trekking for Animals Asia

In October this year I will be joining a group of other Animals Asia supporters to trek through the jungles of Northern Vietnam, and together we will be raising thousands of pounds to help Animals Asia in their mission to end cruelty to all animals across Asia.   Although we will be rewarded with a visit to the Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre in Tam Dao National Park we will have to complete the trek through humid jungles and up rocky paths, and it will certainly not be a 5 day leisurely stroll.  Accommodation and facilities will be very basic as we will be staying with local families – no comfy hotel beds or bathrooms.

I did the Animals Asia China trek in 2011 which was absolutely amazing but also very scary at times, especially when there was only a narrow path with a steep rise on one side and an equally steep drop on the other as you can see below.

I am paying my own costs but am still short on the minimum sponsorship and would really appreciate any help you can offer.  With Animals Asia you know that the money will directly help the animals we all care about, so if you think that any of your friends or family might like to help me reach my sponsorship target, please feel free to pass on my JustGiving page. Any amount will be much appreciated.  You can also donate by text by simply texting the code MDVI50 £1 (£2, £3, £4, £5 or £10) to 70070.

I will try to post a daily update from Vietnam in October so you can see how we’re all getting on.

Thank you so much! 🙂
