International Animal Rescue
aim of International
Animal Rescue (IAR) is to come to the aid
of suffering animals with hands-on rescue and the provision
of short or long term rehabilitation. Wherever possible
they return rescued animals to their natural habitat,
but they also provide sanctuary for animals that can
no longer survive in the wild.
They work with other likeminded organisations and government
departments to develop sound legislation to protect
animals from cruelty and neglect. International
Animal Rescue specialises in providing
comprehensive sterilisation and vaccination programmes
for stray dogs and cats to control populations and prevent
the spread of disease. In all that they do, they aim
to produce practical solutions that benefit both animals
IAR has set up sanctuaries in India to care for rescued
bears, but it desperately needs further funding to provide
extra land and facilities for the damaged animals. In
the past four years they have rescued nearly 400 bears,
but it is estimated that there may still be several
hundred ’dancing’ on the streets.
A survey conducted by Wildlife
SOS in 2006 estimates that there are still
600 dancing bears on the streets of India. Together
with their Indian partners they aim to provide a safe
haven for each and every one of them. They have the
government and forestry department on our side.
Together with International Animal Rescue, WildlifeSOS
they have rescued just over 400 dancing bears and, with
funding from IAR and three other international charities,
run the largest bear sanctuaries in the world which
give a lifelong home to rescued bears and cubs.
