THE HUMANE EATING PROJECT
The Humane Eating Project is an application that finds humane conscious restaurants and gives consumers a voice in the fight against factory farming.
The restaurant locator will display restaurants that use humanely raised meat, or have vegetarian or vegan menus. Local establishments will be mapped alongside reviews, cost, food type, and other search criteria. It will also show Watch List restaurants to avoid, which sell veal, foi gras, or shark fin.
The Humane Eating Project allows consumers to directly interact with restaurant owners. Each meal becomes a vote for the transition away from factory farmed animal products to humanely raised foods. It gives consumers power to promote restaurants that are doing the right thing, and change those that are not. Eventually, humanely raised foods can become the norm in restaurants.
The social home for animal advocates.
Hive is a social network that connects animal advocates with events, organizations, and other advocates in their communities. Users can discover animal-related events, follow the organizations they love, and connect with fellow advocates.
Animal Ally is a mobile app that empowers you to fight cruelty in the community where you live. It shows you where animal cruelty is occurring and provides simple, effective steps you can take to stop it.
The app also enables you to report incidents of animal cruelty, whether those incidents are emergencies or more normalized forms of cruelty (such as pet stores that sell puppies bred in puppy mills).
Any cruelty you report is made available in real-time, marked on the map using geolocation, and visible to all users. Itâ€™s the beginning of the end of animal cruelty.
While empowering others through technology, America for Animals feels a strong responsibility to help animals in its own community. Just fifteen miles south of where we work, cats and dogs suffer in the worst conditions imaginable. Our CompasiÃ³n campaign empowers advocates on the other side of the border. With low cost, we are able to make a big impact on hundreds of dogs and cats.
As a part of this campaign, AFA conducts one-day spay/neuter clinics in Tijuana, Mexico. The clinics are held in impoverished areas of the city where access to veterinary services is nonexistent. Surgeries are provided at no cost to the pet owner. All citizens are welcome and no one is turned away. At each clinic, AFA provides direct funding, assistance to veterinary technicians, and humane education to pet owners. In 2013, 308 dogs and cats were spayed and neutered at these clinics. Additionally, 108 pet owners were educated on proper pet care.
