SUPPORT CARLA the COMPANION ANIMALS RIGHT LIFE ACT, a Cause Marketing program of Green Pets America Charities.

Every year over 4 million companion animals in America are killed in our animal shelters.

Why? because companion animals are legally labeled “things” in the eyes of the law. We know from science however that companion animals are sentient beings: that have feelings and emotions, have intelligence and feel pain and happiness. In the 21st century companion animals must not be labeled by lawyers as things. A car is a thing. A dog or cat is not an unfeeling, unintelligent lifeless thing.

Many countries around the world have changed their laws to treat animals with rights as sentient beings. America must get on board as well. Help Green Pets America Charities change the law in America. Please support CARLA – Companion Animals Right to Life Act. Help us as we advocate for legal “personhood’ for companion animals. Give them a right to life in America.

Help us sue for our animals right to life and tell the lawyers that our companion animals are not mere things to be killed at will with no legal rights to live.








What is Cause Marketing?

Cause marketing is a type of marketing involving the cooperative efforts of a for-profit business and a non-profit organization for mutual gain. Cause marketing differs from corporate philanthropy, as the latter generally involves a specific donation that is tax-deductible, while Cause Marketing is a mutually beneficial partnership relationship not simply based on a one time donation.

What Are the Benefits of Cause Marketing?

The benefits of cause marketing for nonprofit organizations are many including an increased ability to promote the nonprofit organization’s cause or mission via the greater financial resources of a large business, and an increased ability to reach possible supporters through another company’s customer base.

The benefits of cause marketing for business include positive public relations, improved customer relations, additional marketing opportunities, and making more money. Studies demonstrate that people like and shop at businesses that support causes.

To learn how Cause Marketing can increase your businesses brand level, and how it can help nonprofits achieve their missions subscribe to Green Pets America to support our cause marketing programs to save the lives of America’s homeless animal shelter animals.

Companion Animal Right to Life Act

What is The One Most Important Thing in Animal Welfare?

What is The One Most Important Thing in Animal Welfare?


What is the one thing in animal welfare, the one most important thing, from all the things we do to save our companion animals from  euthanization at shelters?

I have wrestled with that question for many years and have finally come to a crystal clear answer.

That one thing to end the killings is to secure a legal “Right to Life for all companion animals in America.

And for our companion animals to legally secure a right to life, they must legally be granted the status of “Personhood”, versus their current legal status of “Things”.

Hi, I’m Steve Monahan the founder and Executive Director of Green Pets America Charities we are asked regularly, Do Our Companion Animals Have A Right To Life? Sadly, the answer is… No.

In America our companion animals do not have a right to life.

This must change! And we are working hard and working smart to make it happen.

At green Pets America we believe that our companion animals have a right to life, just as we humans. We must no longer in America categorize companion animals as “Things”. Being classified today legally as “Things” they are worth no value. They can be harmed or killed and it is legal in the eyes of the court.

We believe that our companion animals must be legally granted the classification of “Personhood”. With personhood legal status they can no longer be killed at whim in shelters or by hateful people who have no value for the lives and joy our companion animals bring to us and this world.

Every year 7 million companion animals enter our animal shelters. About 4 million are adopted. And the remaining 3 million? They are euthanized. Why because they have no legal rights. There are no laws to stop euthanizing healthy shelter companion animals. The “Law” says they are merely “things” that can legally be killed in our animal shelters at will.

When we pass the one most important thing we in animal welfare can do, The Companion Animal Right to Life Act, CARLA, setting in place the “Personhood Law” to classify our companion animals from things to personhood, then, and only then will we stop killing America’s companion animals.

Please Join with this journey for life as we educate, fight and lobby for a legal right to life for our companion animals
