America for Animals is a new type of animal welfare organization - one that empowers advocates to promote compassion and fight cruelty in the communities where they live. We do this by developing state-of-the-art web and mobile applications that make it easy and fun to help animals. Our apps are designed to help people find humane places to eat, meet like-minded advocates, campaign to end inhumane practices, and take other simple actions that make the world kinder for our four-legged friends. We also do work internationally to improve the lives of dogs and cats in poor communities.

AFA is headquartered in San Diego, California. We work with talented volunteers across the country. We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
