Fifi was Rescued!
Fifi’s first 30 years of life were spent at a roadside zoo in Pennsylvania, where the Syrian brown bear was forced to stand on her hind legs and perform tricks to entertain visitors for years. When the zoo finally closed down in 1995, she and three other bears were simply warehoused in cramped cages. Two decades later, PETA learned of their plight and arranged for them to be retired to The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado. Fifi was severely underweight and suffering from painful arthritis in her rear legs. Her coat was thin and unkempt, and her eyes were sunken. But after just a few months, she was a different bear—today, her legs are stronger, her eyes are bright, and her coat has become thick and shiny.

Investigations & Rescue (I&R) Fund donors contribute so that PETA's eyewitness investigators are able to expose—and ultimately stop—the cruelty that animal abusers try so desperately to hide. I&R Fund donors also make it possible for PETA to provide immediate veterinary treatment, transport, and humane shelter to animals in emergencies.
