Christmas Cheer from Jigsaw to his supporters

Hi everyone!  Boy!  Christmas time already! A good year for rescues and much good news to come next year.

Sometimes it’s easy to enjoy a fresh start and a new life at the sanctuary but sometimes it presents a few challenges. Some touching stories in this issue

And other challenges include not only closing down the bear bile farms but but also people’s interest in bear bile as a medicine. But important steps being made in both these areas as Vietnam moves towards no bears to be held privately after 2022!

And a Merry Beary Christmas to you all!!
Love, your bear, Jigsaw
