Darien, Connecticut — Friends of Animals today announced the opening of their redesigned Internet site,

The new site features a leading-edge weblog with access to information about the organization’s work along with up-to-the-hour news and interactive commentary. It will provoke, inspire, and invite immediate dialogue.

“It’s communication with people of keen awareness and creativity that transforms animal rights theory into a social movement,” said Priscilla Feral, Friends of Animals’ president. “The exploration of ideas we enjoy in the presence of dedicated advocates is ready to thrive in the public sphere, and the perfect technology is here.”

The site provides the public and the media a window to animal rights perpectives in action. Visitors will not only find timely animal rights news clips and ideas, but can also comment on them. The result is a unique forum for creative discussion and incisive debate on the issues shaping the animal rights movement.

Advocates will find the animal rights blog on the Friends of Animals home page, which presents a news billboard — each item linking a full-time, hosted forum for debate and commentary. Friends of Animals will continue to expand and enhance the site, in order to provide timely information on animal rights, peaceful cuisine, current events, and resourceful advocacy.
