What we're about

Florida Voices for Animals (FVA), sponsors of the Annual Tampa Bay VegFest, is a nonprofit organization. Our members work for the compassionate treatment of animals. Issues we're involved in: exploitation of animals in entertainment, on factory farms, and by breeders; protection of endangered wildlife; spay and neuter programs; reduction of domestic abuse and neglect of companion animals; promotion of plant-based diets; support of animal sanctuaries; and protection of the environment for all animals, human and nonhuman. Join us today to help create a gentler, more compassionate world! We hold lots of events in the Tampa Bay Area. Come to one of our pot lucks or dinners and meet renowned advocates for animals. Help us with leafleting or education of schoolchildren on animal rights and plant-based diets. Pitch in to help at one of our vegan bake sales or other advocacy events. Come to our celebrated ThanksVegan dinner. Join us to get involved, and meet lots of other caring, compassionate people like you!

FVA Volunteer Day at Shelter Farm Sanctuary

1837 County Rd 769

Please join us at Shelter Farm Sanctuary in Arcadia on Oct 31.
We will spend the day helping out doing behind-the-scenes jobs; like cleaning barns and pastures, scrubbing water troughs and more. You will be working side by side with the rescued animal residents. Come and make new friends, support the Sanctuary, see the animals, and get a workout!

If you have rubber boots or work boots/old shoes please bring. Jeans, work gloves, sunscreen, and bug spray are also helpful. Always bring plenty of water to drink. Shelter Farm Sanctuary is a vegan organization, and they ask that no animal products be consumed on the premises. Vegan snacks are always welcome!

Monetary donations along with fruits and veggies for the resident animals are welcome as well.

Please fill out the volunteer form/waiver and bring it with you.
