Green Pets


Hi, I’m Steven Monahan, Founder- Executive Director Green Pets Charities. Here I share my insights, expertise and opinions on the human animal bond; including, nutrition, pet food, total wellness, animal welfare, animal rights; as well as news, trends and developments in the global pet industry.


The vision of Green Pets is in its name.  Pets are a precious resource to be sustained and not thrown away.  Green Pets believes pets are not disposable but rather a resource that needs to be rescued, renewed and rehomed. Founded in Atlanta, GA in 2007. Gold Star Rated 501c3 Non-Profit Organization. Recognized by the State Senate of Georgia and City Council of Woodstock for our works to the State and Community.

Green Living Green PetsThe concept for Green Pets was based on my love of animals and best-selling animal welfare book named, Rescue Renew Rehome.  It was written to teach pet owners how to organically and holistically feed and care for their family pets.

In the past 10 years, GPA have rescued, renewed and rehomed almost 1,000 death row shelter animals throughout Georgia.

Dog Food was given to places like Papas Pantry, Must Ministries, and The Cherokee Animal Shelter.  A need was filled by helping families keep their pets with them when the tough times hit.

Green Pets helped children needing service dog to help them live to the best of their abilities.

Green Pets is keenly aware a phenomenon called “Black Dog Syndrome”.  It’s a sad truth that leaves black dogs in shelters much longer than their tan furred brethren.  Just like certain breeds, dogs shouldn’t be judged on the color of their fur or their breed.

Green Pets is not your basic “rescue the dogs” nonprofit. They cover a lot of needs in their overarching vision of simply keeping families and pets together.

Green Pets helped honor our local working K9s by providing a fenced in area at the Woodstock police station for a K9 outdoor “break room”.  Our police K9 is on the job protecting us 24/7 and Green Pets America believes we all should love and celebrate these working officers, with the dignity, honor and respect they deserve.

Steve Monahan, Green Pets Founder, said; in our day to day efforts, we seek to fill the gaps that exist in providing the needed resources to keep families and their beloved pets together in hard times.

We listen to families and their individual needs.  It may be helping with funds to pay for routine veterinary care for a beloved pet. Or emergency care when a dog or cat is injured.  It even means providing resources for spay and neutering.

The State Senate of Georgia and City Council of Woodstock Georgia recognized Green Pets for their service to Georgia’s families and pets.

As Green Pets takes a moment to look back on the last 10 years, we look to the future and helping our surrounding area to “Live Green” with their pets.  Our Pets are so precious to us, as they give us unconditional love, we should all be giving them a chance to live healthy, happy and pets
