10 Year Anniversary Green Pets America

10 Year Anniversary Green Pets America.

Green Pets America is not your usual rescue the dogs nonprofit. Hi, I’m Steven Monahan, Founder-Executive Director of Green Pets America Charities. We are both an animal welfare and an animal rights organization. Green Pets America cover’s a lot of needs in our overarching vision to keep families and their companion animals safe and together.

As an “animal welfare” organization we are a compassionate and articulate voice for the safety and compassionate care of our beloved companion animals.

As an “animal rights” organization we argue for a right to life for all companion animals through our Companion Animal Right to Life group, named CARLA.

The vision of Green Pets America is in its name. Pets, or more appropriately stated “companion animals” are a precious resource to be sustained and not thrown away.  Green Pets believes our companion animals are not disposable but deserve a right to life and when in shelters must be rescued, renewed and rehomed. We were founded in Atlanta, GA in 2007. GPAC is a nationally recognized Gold Star Rated 501c3 Non-Profit Organization. Steve Monahan and GPAC were recognized by the State Senate of Georgia and other entities for their dedication to families and companion animals.

The concept for Green Pets America Charities was based on Steve’s desire to give a second chance at life for dogs sitting in death row kill shelters. Steve survived a terminal illness and felt compelled to help animals get a new chance at life, just as he was blessed to receive.

In the past 10 years, GPA has rescued, renewed and rehomed over 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. Additionally, we have helped children in need of a service dog secure one so they can get around safely, living a happy wholesome life just like all their friends.

10 Year Anniversary Green Pets America.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 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; Green Pets is not your basic rescue the dogs nonprofit. In our day to day efforts, we seek to fill the gaps in animal welfare that exist by providing needed resources to ensure families and their beloved pets remain bonded and 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.

green pets americaAs Green Pets takes a moment to look back on the past 10 years, we look to the future, not the past. We launched Green Pets Europe in 2016 and are very pleased with the expansion and hunger for learning about sheltering and especially no-kill for Europe.

If you love dogs as we do and want to help them live full lives we know you will love viewing and reading our two best selling books. ART OF THE BLACK DOG, AND RESCUE RENEW REHOME. Both available on AMAZON BOOKS.

We can use your help supplying our “eco-green Shelters”. Please donate to Green Pets America so we can provide “eco- Green Shelters” for dogs left outside in this freezing weather.

ART OF THE BLACK DOG AMAZON REVIEWS

ART OF THE BLACK DOG AMAZON REVIEWS. We are so excited about the new animal welfare book, ART OF THE BLACK DOD and want to share these 5 Star Amazon book review’s with you.


5 STARS – A poetic collection of exceptional photography, endearing poetry. “Art of the Black Dog” as the title suggests, is a loving tribute to Black Dogs. A poetic collection of exceptional photography, endearing poetry, as presented by Atlanta-centric author Steven Monahan, a well-known animal advocate and non-profit founder of Green Pets America Charities. Art of the Black Dog is rich with emotion including photos of playful little faces of unconditional love to heart-grabbing prose describing the human-animal connection. Mr. Monahan has successfully depicted BDS (Black Dog Syndrome) in a way that is not critical, judgmental, or negative. Quite the opposite in fact. This book is a lovely gift for anyone who loves all dogs, is perhaps involved in animal welfare, or works in animal care in any capacity. It is also a beautiful complement to any coffee table, including mine.


5 STARS – Breathtaking Photos.  As an animal lover and lifelong advocate for dogs this is now in my collection of coffee table books. Why? Because what better way to bring awareness and knowledge than breathtaking photos and short quotes about man’s best friend. I stumbled across this book via a friend on Facebook and I couldn’t be happier! Grateful for this wonderful addition to my collection.


5 STARS – Want to be the difference? Art of the Black Dog is beautifully produced, well written and tells a much needed-to-be- heard story about the dire fate of far too many black dogs and cats, referred to as Black Dog Syndrome. This is not a Sarah McLachlan sob commercial, but a genuine and uplifting look at real life here in America. Buy the book, read it, and you decide. You can make a difference.
