On November 6th, you need to speak for those who can't !
Thanks to a statewide grass-roots campaign by Florida animal welfare advocates, a referendum will be added to the November 6th ballot to end greyhound racing in Florida. A 60% majority is required to end dog racing. Expect strong opposition from greyhound breeders, dog tracks and greyhound trainers. On November 6th vote to end greyhound racing in Florida.


  • One greyhound dies every three days at dog tracks in Florida.
  • Last summer seventeen greyhounds tested positive for cocaine at the track in Jacksonville.
  • Greyhound racing is illegal in forty states and active in only four states.
  • There are approximately 8,000 greyhounds housed in track facilities in Florida.

We need Fosters!

We need caring people to take special needs dogs while they recover from illness or injury until we can place them in a furever home. The foster period could be a few days to a few months. If you love dogs, but you can't make a long term commitment to own one, fostering may be the answer.

We need volunteers to help with event planning, marketing, social media and photography and dog walking. If you love animals, have some skills and can devote a little of your time, contact us.
Friends of Animals Nassau (FAN) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Nassau County Florida. FAN focuses on finding homes for dogs and assists in their medical care, including heartworm treatment. FAN is not an animal shelter, instead we keep dogs in loving foster homes with caring people while they undergo treatment until we find them a furever home. We are able to help dogs through the work of our tireless volunteers, our fundraising events, our generous sponsors and your contributions. All donations are tax deductible.
