The UFA (Unión Furry Argentina) was founded in 2000 by a small group of Argentine furries, who represented the majority of the fandom in that country at that time. Their goal is to provide a place for other local furries to meet each other, as well as to promote the furry genre.
This proyect (which originally started as a joke) developed from the need of extending the social network among Argentine fandom members. Its founders, ZorroRe and Pablo, were helped by FurryZero for registering its name and mascot. Among the first members were OsoZeth, Fire, and others who joined during those first years. Its original goal was to attract other furry fans from the same country, as well as letting them get in touch with the other members of the fandom, which were not many yet in Argentina.
From its humble beginnings, the UFA has encouraged furries in its country to join it, as well as furries from other parts of the world. As time went on, more joined this group, and furs from other countries began to learn about its existence.
Since 2002, the UFA has had a stand in Leyendas, a comic convention which takes place in Rosario, Argentina. In 2004, they began UFACon, an annual event which has been held as a part of Leyendas until 2008. In 2009, it was held as an actual convention.
