About Friends of Animals
Friends of Animals is a non-profit, international animal advocacy organization, incorporated in the state of New York since 1957. Friends of Animals works to cultivate a respectful view of nonhuman animals, free-living and domestic. Our goal is to free animals from cruelty and institutionalized exploitation around the world.
Friends of Animal's President is Priscilla Feral, who works out of FoA's International Headquarters in Darien, Connecticut.
The projects and services provided by Friends of Animals are entirely supported by membership contributions, bequests, and grants. Our continued strength depends upon the generosity of our members and donors.
We inform members about animal advocacy issues and our progress in addressing them through our magazine, Act•ionLine, our Web site and other reports. We encourage our members to get involved in their own communities as volunteer activists and as representatives of our spay/neuter project.
With the loyal support of our members and friends from all walks of life thoughout the world, each year we actively meet the needs of more animals on more fronts than any animal advocacy group of our kind.
