It all began with the individual works and awareness of six individuals living in Yogyakarta who were working to better the plight of animals in their community. In early 2010, they got together and decided that joining forces would be more effective in educating the community, and formed a small group they called 'Animal Friends Jogja [AFJ]'. AFJ is now still a non-profit organization based in Yogyakarta that is committed to improving the welfare of the animals in the community through proactive education, advocacy, campaigns, rescues, , networking with related organizations and communities, and promoting grassroots activism. We endeavor to relieve suffering and overpopulation by providing medical care, spay and neuter (sterilization), fostering / adoption for stray-neglected-abused companion animals, and by educating children and adults in animal welfare & nature conservation.
