America for Animals’ (AFA’s) mission is to give people the power to help animals by developing modern tools for advocacy. Founded in 2012, the organization is run and almost entirely staffed by volunteers. Their Humane Eating Project app, released in 2014, provides thousands of users with information about restaurants that offer humanely sourced or animal-product-free meals. For the past few years, AFA has also been developing Hive, a social network for animal advocates which is intended to strengthen animal organizations’ reach and draw more interested Americans into animal advocacy. Though the development process has faced setbacks, AFA aims to release the first iteration of Hive in 2018.1
