Together We Can Make A Difference For Animals

Every day at Born Free USA we are hard at work on behalf of animals. This includes keeping track of significant events and legislation that have the potential to harm or benefit animals.

But we can't do it alone. We need you to help, as our partner in action, in our efforts to alleviate the unnecessary suffering of wild animals in captivity, rescue individual animals in need, protect wildlife — including highly endangered species — in their natural habitats, and encourage compassionate conservation globally.

Our Action Alerts and Petitions offer you many important ways to work with us at the local, state, national, and global level to create a significant impact on how animals are treated in our society.

Just click on any of the Alerts or Petitions below for specifics on how you can get involved. Our alerts are arranged with the newest call to action first.

Using the search menu on the right, you can also go directly to the campaigns and issues that are most important to you, or that affect animals in your state.

We're glad you're here and look forward to working with you to create positive changes.

Thank you for all you do everyday to benefit animals!
