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!

- Al Lopez Park Quarterly Clean upAl Lopez Park, Tampa, FL
Please join us at our quarterly park cleanup at Al Lopez Park in Tampa. We will start at 10:00 am and end around 11:00 am.
Just a reminder of why we have a clean-up at Al Lopez Park.
"Florida Voices for Animals has adopted beautiful Al Lopez Park through the Tampa Bay Beautification's Adopt-A-Park Program. In exchange for FVA cleaning up litter and debris, removing invasive plants and performing other tasks at the park 4 times a year, the city posted a sign at the park to let others know that FVA has adopted this park. This is a great way to beautify our community, help our environment and wildlife at the park while at the same time letting others know about FVA."
We will meet in the parking lot in front of the small green building (public restrooms) to your immediate left as you enter the park. We will provide gloves and bags. Please wear closed toe shoes and bring water. We try to start as close to 10:00 am as possible, if you are going to be late please let us know.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you all.
