A University of California, Davis survey suggested that about 40% of furries had attended at least one furry convention.
The Internet contains a multitude of furry websites and online communities, such as art community websites Fur Affinity, Inkbunny, So Furry and Weasyl; social networking sites Furry 4 Life, Fur Nation; and Wiki Fur, a collaborative furry wiki.
Positive coverage was generated following a furry convention that was held in a Vancouver hotel where a number of Syrian refugees were being temporarily housed.
Sufficient interest and membership has enabled the creation of many furry conventions in North America and Europe.
A portion of the fandom is sexually interested in zoophilia (sex with animals), although a majority take a negative stance towards it.
An anonymous survey in 2008 found 17% of respondents reported zoophilia.
The survey specifically avoided adult-oriented websites to prevent bias.
Another survey found that 96.3% of male furry respondents reported viewing furry pornography, compared with 78.3% of female; males estimated 50.9% of all furry art they view is pornographic, compared with 30.7% female.
