What we did?
ARB pays attention to and publicizes the policies, laws and
scientific knowledge on environmental protection and ecological
balance-keeping from China and abroad. It actively works and
exchanges with the other NGOs both home and abroad in the fields
of animal protection and rescue, scientific feeding, training,
vaccination, medical treatment, pharmacy research and health
keeping. ARB helps the other provinces and cities set up the
local NGO for animal protection.
In 1993, ARB built up an animal shelter and clinic for the
injured and sick companion animals which were abandoned by the
owners. During the past 15 years, ARB rescued 1,328 dogs and
over 400 cats and found new homes for them. In addition, we
rescues and released more than 4,000 second-grade state protected
wild animals and birds
, including raccoon, mountain turtle,
five-step snake, owl, kingfisher, masked civet, and so on. We
also cured over 6,000 cats and dogs with virus infrectionor
Each year, visitors of the shelter reach 4,000 to 5,000 people/times
and young volunteers, most of whom are college students and
white collars, reach 800 to 1,000 people/times. The shelter
had become a field classroom and window of ARB.
Since the year of 1987, ARB has been calling for the legislation
of China Animal Protection Law, China Law against Animal Abuse
and China Law on Animal Welfare. Each year ARB makes a proposal
to the government on the animal law legislation and holds on
with the educational activities by the ways of shelter visit
