We believe a healthy life is impossible without a healthy planet, which is why ActivatedYou® is proud to sponsor Animals Asia, an organization near and dear to Maggie’s heart, and deeply tied to her passion for animal welfare. We’re especially inspired by Animals Asia’s decades-long legacy of work through the principles of kindness in action, which we agree are central to a healthy world.
Animals Asia’s work focuses on 3 major programs:
End Bear Bile Farming
Animals Asia has rescued more than 600 bears from bile farms, and aims to end the bile trade overall, by promoting synthetic and plant-based substitutes as a humane alternative.
Cat and Dog Welfare
Animals Asia works to end the trade in dogs and cats for food in Asia, to improve the welfare of companion animals, and promote humane animal population management.
Captive Animal Welfare
Animals Asia campaigns for an end to abusive animal practices in zoos and safari parks, and to increase awareness of the welfare needs of captive wild animals.
Working for nearly 30 years to end bear bile farming
Animals Asia has been working for nearly 30 years to end bear bile farming, a practice which has led to over 10,000 bears in captivity. They believe that success comes through utilizing kindness, cooperation and respect rather than confrontation, to bring about real, lasting change for the better, and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of bears, as well as other animals throughout Asia
