Thank you for help­ing our an­i­mal res­cue work

Derby Telegraph - - LETTERS -

FOUNDED in 1990, An­i­mal De­fend­ers In­ter­na­tional (ADI) works to pro­tect an­i­mals in en­ter­tain­ment and re­search by lob­by­ing for leg­isla­tive change, pub­lic aware­ness cam­paigns, and im­ple­ment­ing world­wide res­cue and re­hom­ing pro­grammes.

A street col­lec­tion to raise funds for our an­i­mal res­cue work was held in Derby on Oc­to­ber 6 and our col­lec­tor, Ta­ma­sine Ash­forth, col­lected £73.

ADI would like to thank the peo­ple of Derby for their sup­port, which will help the or­gan­i­sa­tion con­tinue to res­cue and re­home an­i­mals.

ADI has now launched Op­er­a­tion Lib­erty to help the Gu­atemalan au­thor­i­ties en­force the ban on an­i­mals in cir­cuses.

ADI will have a team at our ADI Tem­po­rary Cus­tody Cen­tre which we hope will re­ceive all 40 of the an­i­mals in Gu­atemalan cir­cuses.

In the com­ing months we hope to

se­cure the han­dover or con­fis­ca­tion of more an­i­mals in Gu­atemala in what could be a very big op­er­a­tion but which will leave an­other coun­try com­pletely cir­cus an­i­mal free. Jan Creamer, pres­i­dent, An­i­mal De­fend­ers In­ter­na­tional, Lon­don
