I have served on the board of Born Free U.S.A. for four years. The board and the organization are committed to both the protection and welfare of animals and to being good stewards of donations recieved. The CEO, Executive Vice President and the entire staff are dedicated and work hours way past what would be the norm. I have been involved with animal protection and welfare for many years and continue to be impressed with what BFUSA does. Our primate sanctuary in Texas is like none other in the U.S. and gives primates rescued from labs, zoos, pet owners, etc. a chance to live as close as possible to how they were meant to live....in the wild. Open enclosures of 50 plus acres are a huge step forward from 4X 4 cages or dressed up as dolls in homes or submitted to terrible testing techniques in labs. The joy of seeing them finally putting their feet on grass or climbing and swinging from trees is heart warming beyond description. The knowledge of the staff in regards to exoctic animals in captivity is tremendous and was demonstrated by the sad incident involving exotic cats, etc. in Ohio in 2011. BFUSA was the leading authority on the tragedy and gave excellent advice on how to keep it from happening again. These are only a few of many examples of what an excellent job this non profit does.

I have been a Board Member for two years, but a donor to this organization and its predecessors for nearly 40 years. The organization is well run, and has staff members who are true believers in the causes they serve. I've been thrilled to be a part of BFUSA and will continue to donate both my time and money to their wonderful work.

Prior to joining the Board, I had heard of the goals of Born Free, and thought that its mission was a noble one, particularly given that it did not have the resources of a Humane Society, etc. Since joining the Board, I am pleased to learn that it truly attempts to achieve its goals. Merely by way of example, when the recent animal tragedy occurred in Ohio, Born Free found itself in the middle of much needed discussion about legislation to assure that the tragedy does not occur again in Ohio and elsewhere. It did so by making itself available, and informed on the topic, for the media - resulting in media opportunities to get this issue out to the public. The goal here not being to get in the spotlight, but to get the public engaged in a covnersation about much needed legislation. It is that quality that sets Born Free apart - pushing its mission without regard to its limitations.
