Born Free USA Makes the Big Leagues

Published 07/01/12

When the Texas Rangers hosted the Oakland Athletics on Sunday evening in Arlington, TX, we were there — making a Jumbotron-size video pitch for support in the Lone Star State! About four years ago, Rangers pitching legend and co-owner Nolan Ryan talked onstage about having once been an "ambassador" for the snow monkeys who were living in what is now the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary. His dry recitation of what happened had the audience (or at least the two radio personalities who were interviewing Ryan) howling with laughter, and audio of the exchange attracted so much attention that Sunday's game was declared to be "Nolan Ryan Snow Monkey Day" at the ballpark.

(We're Talking to You, Nonprofessionals!)

Published 06/22/12

It's time for our second annual Keep Wildlife in the Wild Photo Contest! Submit a candid picture you take of any animal who lives in the wild and you could win our top prize, a Born Free USA merchandise gift basket.

And keep in mind that all entries must be received by the end of the day on Monday, July 9, 2012. (See last year's winners here.)

Keep Wildlife in the Wild Month!

Published 05/31/12

There's so much to do on behalf of animals that we have expanded our Keep Wildlife in the Wild Week to Keep Wildlife in the Wild Month! Throughout June, we will be discussing our five major campaigns — Wildlife Trade, Trapping and Fur, Animals in Entertainment, Exotic "Pets" and our Primate Sanctuary — through a series of Action Alerts and videos. Watch our chief executive officer, Will Travers, as he introduces Keep Wildlife in the Wild Month, which will include a children's essay contest, our second annual Keep Wildlife in the Wild Photo Contest, and our annual summertime online auction that includes more than 50 unique items.

What's Your Favorite Pet Supply Store?

Published 05/29/12

Last summer's Compassionate Pet Supply Store of the Year contest was a great success, with more than 150 nominations. So we're doing it again! Nominate your favorite pet supply store before July 1. Use our online form to tell us what makes it so special. You know — the owner who knows you and your animal companion by name, or the salespeople who are so knowledgeable that they can take you straight to the right product, no matter how obscure. The contest's only criteria are that the store cannot sell live animals of any kind, including birds, reptiles or fish, and must be a brick-and-mortar store (not just an online shopping site).

An Artful Way to Boost Born Free USA

Published 05/23/12

Are you going to be in or near Los Angeles on Saturday, May 26? ThinkSpace Art Gallery in Culver City (map) invites you to the opening reception (5 to 8 p.m.) for "Wild at Heart: Keep Wildlife in the Wild," featuring works by more than 100 artists. The exhibition, which runs through June 9, will raise awareness about the precarious predicament of wild creatures around the world and aid efforts to protect them in their natural habitat. A whopping 20 percent of all artwork sales benefit Born Free USA, and we'll receive all proceeds from a silent auction of donated rare prints from Mark Ryden, Marion Peck and Audrey Kawasaki. After May 26, unsold works can be purchased online.
