Promoting and protecting the rights of animals in Florida has been the mission of the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida (ARFF) since 1989. Since our founding, we've recognized that change never happens fast enough, and victories are rarely complete, but when we look back we can see that—through persistence and patience—the situation for animals in Florida has improved.
ARFF reaches out to the public through demonstrations and outreach events, letters to the editor, and personal appearances by our spokespersons on radio, television, before civic groups and in school classrooms. We also promote the well-being of animals through meetings with, and campaigns directed at, industry and community decision-makers.
Our volunteers are the heart of our organization. An active e-mail list and quarterly newsletter alerts members to upcoming demonstrations and the need for targeted letters. Please check the Action Alerts and Campaigns pages for what you can do to help the animals!
