Ricky Gervais and Moby help launch ADI's online store for gifts that roar!

Posted: 1 November 2016. Updated: 1 November 2016

Animal loving celebs support Animal Defenders International with the opening of online catalogue of unique gifts.

Animal Defenders International (ADI) has joined forces with comedian Ricky Gervais and musician Moby to give shoppers a great way to raise money for animals in need, with the launch of ADI’s new online store. Moby poses in one of ADI’s new T-Shirts, sporting an image of Pepe the Spider monkey, one of over 100 animals rescued by ADI earlier this year from circuses and the illegal wildlife trade in South America. Ricky’s cat Ollie, famous in his own right with 35,000 Twitter followers, can be seen happily ‘lion’ atop a T-Shirt of Rey, the ex-circus lion from Peru. The full range of gifts, ideal for animal lovers of all ages, can be found at with 100% of the profits going towards the further care of our rescued animals.

There are gifts and accessories to suit all budgets and interests, from fashion items such as wristbands and T-Shirts, to household items like candles, soaps, Christmas cards and canvas prints of rescued animals. Shoppers will also be first in line to pick up the multi-award winning film ‘Lion Ark’ out on DVD in November. The critically acclaimed documentary follows the story of the dramatic rescue and relocation of 25 lions from circuses in Bolivia. Tickets at this link:

Jan Creamer ADI President said “The ADI store has some great items, perfect for Christmas presents, so you can not only look good, but do good with your money. The proceeds help ADI end the suffering of animals in captivity.”

The Lion Ark DVD also carries short films about this year’s rescue, where over 100 wild animals had been saved from circuses and the illegal wildlife trade in Peru and Colombia. This culminated in a massive airlift of more than 30 lions, from South American circuses, home to Africa. ADI is raising funds for a huge £200,000 natural habitat construction project for the lions.
