Can America stop killing millions of shelter animals?

The question in animal welfare is: Can America stop killing millions of shelter animals?

Our belief at Green Pets America Charities is America CAN.


We believe that American’s are a kind people who love their companion animals.

We believe America no longer accepts the killing of millions of shelter animals every year.

We believe with compassionate leadership America Can end the killing of its homeless animals.

Further, we believe that the present model for animal welfare is broken. It must be updated for the 21st century. We believe that to achieve full adoptions in every community across America our animal industry must partner with each local animal shelter.

Shelters can no longer go it alone. Rescue groups can no longer run their organizations with little to no funding, begging for donations. Each community must come together to care for all the companion animals in its community. Each community must support and sufficiently fund their shelters.

The animal industry in each community can no longer sit on the sidelines, leaving it to welfare groups to do it alone. We believe the 21st century model must therefore be a community partnership model for each community across America. Ever community across America must build a nexus of organizations in their community of retail animal businesses, veterinary professionals, shelters, non-profit rescues, and government entities with the single focus to achieve 95% adoption rates in their community.

Our 5 Core Beliefs. 

  1. America can compassionately care and protect from harm its companion animals
  2. America can adopt 95% of its healthy shelter animals
  3. America can adopt all its local rescue group companion animals
  4. America can feed all its hungry companion animals
  5. America can help all its seniors, military and families in need with their companion animals

Animal welfare thought leader. My writings and books are a reflection of my beliefs on the interconnected genius of life. I was an introverted teen who broke open his shell and morphed into a successful corporate executive, then death survivor, then entrepreneur and now author and mentor. I believe we are each here for a wonderfully unique reason. Our quest is to follow where ever the path leads, in awe of the visions and the people we meet along the way.
