When I was the president of the Madison, WI bird club, Born Free helped me understand the issues facing pet birds sold in pet stores and the need for tougher legislation. With their help I was able to start a campaign to educate the community, pet stores and legislators. The people involved with Born Free are among the most dedicated and helpful where it concerns animal welfare. I would gladly work with them again.

The Great!

I know some of the people working for this organization and they are the real deal - they have dedicated their lives to the improvement of animal welfare. People who spend their spare time trapping cats for spay/neuter, fostering animals, etc.

The Great!

I attended a hearing at the CA state capital where a member of the organization was defending a bill to require basic veterinary care and provide some sort of enrichment, like a toy or perch, in toy stores. I used to drive by a statue of an elephant with an anti-circus message that was placed strategically on a busy street.

Get more publicity so that people can hear about the benefits of this organization.

You don't have a category for Related Organization and you should have because that's my connection to Born Free USA. As Director of TrailSafe Nevada, a statewide grassroots group lobbying for better trap regulation, I called on Born Free USA, the national group devoted to the trapping and fur trade issue, for help. A Senior Program Associate traveled to Nevada and stayed two days. She helped me lobby, she gave me expert advice on lobbying and on writing my proposals, she testified for us at our Legislative hearing. Our bill was heavily amended, but did survive, so now we have a law requiring our Wildlife Commission to regulate trapping in our most congested areas. Born Free USA are high on the list of those who helped make it happen.
The Program Associate continues to help me with tactics and strategy, with model laws from other states, and prompt answers to questions that come up. She is more than generous with her assistance. She also circulates our notices to her mailing list, thereby reaching thousands with our news and messages.
I could not ask for a more responsive, informed, expert, caring organization than Born Free USA.

The Great!

See my story above. With the aid of the Senior Program Associate, I learned the ropes about lobbying, the moods and methods of legislators, and effective tactics. She supplied vital statistics about trapping nationwide and in our state.

I would ask that they be greatly supported so that they can open a branch office in Northern Nevada.

I've met some of the principal people, but always have to respect the CN rating. Two stars should be a huge red flag for anyone. What are they doing wrong financially? Until they get their rating up, I won't donate again. There are plenty of highly-rated charities that need every dollar.
