On March 5th Animals Asia hosted a special event at NeueHouse Hollywood attended by founder and CEO Jill Robinson -while some of the other guests of the night included; Jesse Metcalfe, Diane Warren, Ali MacGraw, Jimmi Simpson, Michelle Forbes and others.

Animals Asia was founded in 1998 to help fight the cruel and horrifying bear bile trade, where as many as 10,000 bears are kept on bile farms across Asia in horrific conditions. Since this incredible organization launched, 600 bears have been rescued and given a second chance at life -while Animals Asia also works with the government in China to stop the killing of cats and dogs for trade.

In addition to all of their other tireless work, Animals Asia continues to work on putting an end to the abusive conditions animals face in zoo’s and safari parks across Southeast Asia. It is wonderful to see so many big names behind such an incredible foundation which helps give a voice to the voiceless and assist in the rescue of precious animals who are living on borrowed time, everyday.

Thank you to Rogers & Cowan PMK for raising awareness and getting behind such an important topic and Animals Asia for having the heart and passion to save these animals to the best of their abilities.
