RELIEF! Born Free Fund Helps Trap-Mutilated Dog
Meet our Trapping Victims Fund's newest beneficiary: Tréa, a young black Labrador from Princeton, MN, who late last year was partially mutilated by a snare trap. Born Free USA paid for hundreds of dollars' worth of initial veterinary expenses for Tréa. The trap's wire had brutally cut into her nose, through the roof of her mouth and embedded into her tongue. Compounding the horror, she broke some of her teeth off trying to chew through the wire. Tréa, a stray, is now doing great with her foster family. Read more about our efforts to help trapping victims, and add your support so we can help others.

BRAVO! Netherlands to Phase Out Mink Fur Farms
Last month, the Netherlands Senate voted in favor of a ban on mink fur farming. Today, some 6 million minks are slaughtered there for skins to peddle in the world's egregiously inhumane fur market. The Fur Free Alliance, a global network of animal welfare organizations that includes Born Free USA, welcomes the ban and hopes that other countries will follow, as it is a clear statement that animal suffering for fashion is no longer acceptable. Stay up-to-date on all things anti-fur by regularly visiting our Fur Free Retailer Facebook page.
