Born Free USA is a national animal advocacy nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, contributions to which are tax-deductible. In December 2007, the Animal Protection Institute and Born Free USA merged to form a new organization combining the strength of API's successful 40-year history as a top-rated charity advocating for animals in the United States and Born Free USA's expertise in national and international wildlife advocacy issues.
Born Free USA's primary areas of focus in the United States are exotic pets, animals in entertainment, international wildlife trade, and trapping/fur. Born Free USA uses powerful tools including legislation, public education, litigation and grass-roots networking in its programs to end animal cruelty and exploitation.
Born Free USA also provides "hands-on" care for animals at the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary near San Antonio, Texas, where more than 500 primates — many of whom were rescued from abusive situations in laboratories, roadside zoos and private possession — live in as natural an environment as possible with minimal human interference.

Washington D.C. -- Rock legends REO Speedwagon hosted a guitar giveaway to support Born Free USA, a leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation, at their concert yesterday, December 15, at the Majestic Theater in San Antonio, Texas. The event raised about $3,000 for the organization, which will be used to care for the animals at the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary in Texas.
“Talkin’ Pets,” with International Talk Show Host, Jon Patch, shares the exciting news that legendary rock band, REO Speedwagon, helped to raise funds for the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary by giving concert-going donors a chance to win a guitar autographed by the band. Adam Roberts, Executive Vice President of Born Free USA, said of last weekend’s San Antonio concert, “The band has embraced our mission to Keep Wildlife in the Wild, and we are grateful they are on board.” For more animal-related stories, follow Talkin’ Pets on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/talkinpetsradio) and like them on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/talkinpetsradiofans).
