“It really isn’t harmless fun, and it’s time it stopped." – Bob Barker, “No Fun For Elephants” DVD
Elephants used for rides are trained with beatings, bullhooks & electric shocks – ADI has exposed suppliers in Texas & California; horrific footage has emerged from Asia. Many people think it’s harmless fun. It’s not.
Tiny cubs when ADI rescued them, Bob, Nancy & Percy were the last animals to perform in a circus in Bolivia. Now look how they’ve grown! Thanks to ADI they’ll have a lifetime of happiness instead of misery and pain. That means we will be looking after them for another 20 years – so please help with an adoption!
Wild animals have not been banned from British circuses yet. THERE IS STILL WORK TO DO & ADI NEEDS YOUR HELP! This week ADI presented our submission to the Government Committee that is scrutinising the draft Bill. Overall it is a good Bill and it is important that it moves forward.
The Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act will be reintroduced in the U.S. Congress this year. It’s vital that your members of Congress know you want them to help end the suffering of circus animals. Strong legislation for animals is rarely passed in one go – so if you’ve contacted them once, then contact them again.
Bolivia is about the size of Texas AND California COMBINED so when, at the start of Lion Ark, Jan Creamer says that the circuses "are spread all over Bolivia" it reveals the huge scale of the challenge ahead. Get your name in the credits of this inspiring movie and receive our limited edition “producer” T-shirt. Any surplus raised will go towards caring for the lions.
Help make this incredible animal rescue film.
An undercover investigation by ADI led to a ban on animal circuses in Bolivia. People thought that was it, but most circuses defied the law. Lion Ark, currently in production, tells the story of how the team that secured the evidence of animal suffering returned to track down the circuses and rescue every animal; with a stunning finale as 25 lions are airlifted to safety in Colorado. A unique behind the scenes record of front line animal rescue, the heartache and the joy. A story of bravery, compassion, camaraderie and determination and a country that said ‘no’ to cruelty.
