FOUR PAWS is celebrating 10 years in the UK - and what a decade it’s been!

We opened our first ever Big Cat Sanctuary, LIONSROCK in South Africa, which is now home to over 100 rescued animals from around the world! We rescued the last remaining dancing bears in Europe and given them a life worth living in our Bulgarian sanctuary.

We even managed to shut down “the world’s worst zoo” in Gaza, rescuing all the remaining animals. Crucially, we have succeeded in helping thousands of animals in disaster zones all over the world.

But we couldn’t have done any of this without the help of UK supporters - so a big thank you from everyone here at FOUR PAWS.

However, it’s not time to pat ourselves on the backs just yet. There’s still plenty to do. That’s why we’re using our tenth birthday to raise awareness of animal welfare issues - so that over the next ten years we can do even more to help animals across the world.

What better way to celebrate a birthday than a bit of fancy dress?

Be sure to check out our ten-year anniversary campaign videos.

You might think dressing up like a bear is a bit silly, but it’s all in the name of a very serious cause - so please share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and help us to continue raising awareness of animal cruelty.
