The Humane Farming Association is the nation's most effective organization dedicated to the protection of farm animals. Founded in 1985, and over 250,000 members strong, HFA has gained national recognition and respect for its hard work, integrity, and its highly-successful campaigns.
HFA's goals are to protect farm animals from cruelty and abuse, to protect the public from the misuse of antibiotics, hormones, and other chemicals used on factory farms, and to protect the environment from the impacts of industrialized animal factories.
In addition to its signature campaign, the National Veal Boycott, HFA's comprehensive programs include: anti-cruelty investigations and exposés, national media campaigns, direct hands-on emergency care and refuge for abused farm animals, legislation, and youth humane education. HFA also operates Suwanna Ranch – the world's largest farm animal rescue and refuge facility.
HFA's legislative arm – the Humane Farming Action Fund (HFAF) is the nation's only lobbying organization founded to protect farm animals. HFAF enacts strong and enforceable legislation to outlaw animal abuse and works to ensure that existing anti-cruelty laws are not undermined or weakened by inhumane and unethical meat industry-backed legislation.
All combined, HFA's programs and activities represent the greatest hopes of those seeking to create a better world for farm animals.
