Group gifts are a fun and easy way to raise funds to help protect animals. Choose a gift from the group gift collection, pick a date, the reason for the gift and get started by asking your friends and family to contribute. Once your gift is fully funded, an eCard will be sent to you or to the person you’ve designated, on the day you selected. Funds raised help will help animal welfare programs around the world.
  • In Pakistan, bears are being cruelly exploited for entertainment. Bears are used for an inhumane blood sport called bear baiting where bears are pitted against trained dogs unable to defend themselves properly. They are also forced to perform on the streets after having been cruelly trained to dance at the sound of a music instrument. In 1997, World Animal Protection joined forces with the Pakistan Bioresource Research Centre (BRC) to bring a permanent end to the tradition of bear baiting and dancing by reducing the number of baiting events, improving the animal welfare laws in Pakistan and to make sure all known bears used for entertainment are rescued and housed appropriately at  BRC’s sanctuary in Balkasar.
