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!

TBVF Volunteer meeting

Needs a location

Please join us at our TBVF Volunteer planning meeting. WE NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS! There is a lot to do to have a successful event. It is not mandatory to attend a volunteer meeting to participate, but it is helpful to meet you and others to interact and hopefully find the best fit for all. IF you have volunteered before your input is very helpful as well. Laura Weiss is our volunteer coordinator and will be reaching out to you to make final assignments and share necessary information as needed. THANK you for your support. We need you!
If you would like to eat earlier, I will have the area reserved starting at 12:30pm or you can stay later. Ordering food is not required.

You can also sign up to volunteer by going directly to our sign-up page on the TBVF Website, got to participate, then to volunteer: OR CLICK HERE TO VOLUNTEER
