Hello and Welcome!

The Furry Fandom is a lot of things to a lot of people. Everyone has their own reasons for being here, though there are a few common threads.  The fandom in a nutshell is about an apprecition of anthropomorphic animals in literature and media and, by extension, an affinity for the study and welfare of animals wild and domestic.

Most fans associate themselves with one or more species of animal, real or imagined, and take on the role of that animal personally, or in relastios with others on-line. This role is often referred to as a persona or in furry slang, fursona.

We come from all walks of life, nationalities, orientation and interest groups to form what is commonly referred to as the Furry family.  One of the best positive aspects of this community is an underlying tolerance of others simpley because we share this deep interest in anthropomorphics.  Sure, we have some fringe elements who, for whatever reason, have their own agendas and diverge from the norm; but thats no different than you'd find in any other large group or fandom.   

So, with all that said, there are some resources that you can find out more about the Fandom in the side bar under "Other Furry Resources" or you can ask what's on your mind and we'll do our best to field them or point you in the right direction.

Once again, welcome and I hope you enjoy your stay.
