A.F.A.D. had a special focus on the work that was carried out at Nuka-World, and would often disturb people and work at Safari Adventure. They often wore animal masks, various animal tattoos, and on occasion, full animal suits. In early 2077, Dr. Hein's Chryslus Corvega was vandalized and filled with manure. "Stop the torture!" was also painted across the security door of the Welcome Center on February 27, 2077.
In the early hours of October 23, 2077, the day of the Great War, a member sent a message by phone to Dr. Hein posing as an employee who required assistance in treating an injured escaped animal at the Angry Anaconda construction site. At least four members of the A.F.A.D., Chipmunk, Rabbit, Robin, and Mouse then held Dr. Hein hostage. At some point, the Nuka-World security team was alerted to the situation. However, the bombs fell before the crisis could be resolved.
A.F.A.D. is a reference to the real-life organization known as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
