Rally 4 Pups!
Help ARFF encourage shoppers to adopt, not shop, during ARFF's ongoing Rally 4 Pups! Puppies sold in pet stores typically come from breeding facilities ("puppy mills") where over-breeding, inbreeding, minimal veterinary care, and crowded cages are common. Puppy mills contribute to the pet overpopulation problem which results in millions of unwanted dogs killed at shelters every year.
Date and Time: Friday, November 16 at 5:00pm
Location: The Puppy Spot, 2515 E Colonial Drive, Orlando (map)
Signs and leaflets will be provided, all we need is you. Please invite your friends and family as well; all ages welcome!
*We do lean on the side of caution for those bringing companion animals. If you decide to bring them along, please be certain that they are leashed and comfortable along busy highways and traffic noises. Please bring water and a spray bottle if attending for the full protest.
ARFF's annual vegan Thanksgiving potluck!
Please join the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida at our 9th annual Thanksgiving potluck. Gather with animal friends and eat delicious vegan food at beautiful Mead Garden. Eat, mingle, hike and have a great time.
ARFF's vegan Thanksgiving is a holiday tradition for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Don't miss this great opportunity to learn about delicious vegan alternatives, and make your Thanksgiving a cruelty-free one! Potlucks offer a wide selection of food and will provide you with great ideas on making your own vegan feast.
Date and Time: Sunday, November 18 at 2:00pm
Location: Mead Garden, 1300 S. Denning Drive, Winter Park (map)
Donation: $5 with a dish, $10 without. Please bring a recipe card for your dish.
Please RSVP to [address removed].
Fur Free Friday
Join ARFF as we educate holiday shoppers about the cruelty of the fur trade on Fur Free Friday, an annual event that takes place the Friday after Thanksgiving. Please take part in this important national event, on the busiest shopping day of the year, to educate the public about the reality of wearing fur.
Orlando's Mall at Millenia has several fur retailers, despite the fact that leading clothing companies such as J.Crew, Ann Taylor, Polo Ralph Lauren and others have pulled fur from their stores forever. With so many fashionable alternatives available, there is no excuse for fashion designers to continue using fur.
Date and Time: Friday, November 23, beginning at 11:00am
Location: The Mall at Millenia, 4200 Conroy Road, Orlando (map)
Activists will gather at the corner of Millenia Blvd. and Conroy Road.
Signs will be provided, just bring yourself and invite friends and family to join you.
