Promoting and protecting the rights of animals in Florida has been the mission of the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida (ARFF) since 1989. Since their founding, they'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," said founder Nanci Alexander.
ARFF reaches out to the public through demonstrations and outreach events, letters to the editor, and personal appearances by their spokespersons on radio, television, before civic groups and in school classrooms. They also promote the well-being of animals through meetings with, and campaigns directed at, industry and community decision-makers.
Their volunteers are the heart of the organization. An active e-mail list and quarterly newsletter alerts members to upcoming demonstrations and the need for targeted letters.
ARFF has seen many accomplishments through the years, all aimed at the betterment of companion and wildlife animals. A list of some of their involvements in the passing of animal protection legislation can be found on their website.
