Give the gift of freedom this holiday season!

Because of caring supporters like you, bears like Gheorge (pictured on the right) were rescued from prison-like cages and now enjoy forested freedom at the Zarnesti Bear Sanctuary. By making an urgent generous gift today, you will help free the remaining captive Romanian bears and allow them to live as nature intended, to forage, play, climb trees, swim, roam in acres of forest and hibernate in a safe warm den for the first time in their lives. 

Your gift will help free the remaining estimated 15 illegally captive Romanian bears and provide a cruelty free world to animals across the globe. Make your gift today by filling in the form at the bottom of this page. Giving online is quick, easy, and secure.
