Black Dog Friday Video

Black Dog Friday Video.

Black Dog Friday is a voice for black shelter dogs, the least adopted and most euthanized of all shelter dogs.

Sadly black dogs are passed over for adoption in favor of lighter-colored animals. Animal shelters often use the term BBD, or big black dog, to describe the type of larger dark-colored mixed-breed said to be typically passed over by adopters.

The Black Dog Phenomenon may be due to a number of factors. Research has identified geographic location, fear against certain breed types, and the fact that large, black dogs are often portrayed as aggressive in film and on television as possible correlates. Additionally, many shelters feature photo profiles of their dogs on the shelter website. Because black dogs do not photograph well, lighter-colored dogs have an advantage with potential adopters browsing the site.

Thankfully to overcome these ignorant outdated  beliefs, Black Dog Friday promotions are growing across America.  As an example of the success of Black Dog Friday adoption events the Black Dog Friday adoption blitz saved hundreds of Black Dogs in California. Thanks to animal welfare groups, Bark Me, Wings of Rescue and others in California and Washington the Black Dog Friday a rescue operation saved thousands of pups from being killed and gave them new homes.

Black Dog Friday is also a regular Friday event for We are Rescue in Woodstock Georgia and hundreds of other rescue groups and shelters across America. Save a life, volunteer at your shelter or rescue group get their black dogs adopted every Friday

Another Vision For No Kill – GREEN no-kill ANIMAL COMMUNITIES

Green Pets America Vision

The Vision of Green Pets America is to extend and link the green movement to the animal welfare movement; to end the dumping, discarding and destroying 4 million healthy and happy companion animals in America’s animal shelters yearly.

If it is the right thing to go green and recycle refuse is it not also as important, if not more so, to go green and recycle happy, health dogs and cats as well.

Our mission is to totally change the animal care system in America by the creation of “Green no-kill Animal Communities”. Regional destination centers that animal lovers will go to adopt, celebrate, care for animals and mingle with one another.

Every year Americans discard 8 million dogs and cats. Our shelters adopt out 4 million and destroy the remaining 4 million. This tragedy must end. We must become a Green Pets Nation. Please join with Green Pets America to advocate for going green!

Americans want a policy of “rescue & recycle” not “discard & destroy”. We can save over 4 million pets annually by recycling, not euthanizing Americas shelter pets. To achieve this goal we are working to open the first green animal community center in Georgia, north of Atlanta.

Green Pets America believes a more intelligent, efficient and humane way to care for shelter and homeless animals in America is possible and has developed a six-part strategy to accomplish it. The SIX Part Strategy focuses on:

  1. GREEN no-kill ANIMAL COMMUNITIES
  2. GREEN SANCTUARIES
  3. ADULT & KIDS EDUCATION
  4. SPAY & NEUTER
  5. COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMS
  6. ADOPTION STORES

The corner-stone to changing our animal care system in America will be the creation of “Green no-kill Animal Communities”. Regional destination centers that animal lovers will go to adopt, celebrate,care for animals and mingle with one another.

There are numerous places for people to come together to participate in activities they enjoy. For example our county has two aquatic centers for swimmers, a beautiful regional bike trail park for bikers, two YMCA centers, a senior center,two very small 1 acre dog fence parks. There are other facilities based on interest for the community as well. But although over 65 % of the public are animal owners there is really no large significant place for animal lovers to come together for activities and education. We will change that…think Disneyland for animal lovers and their family pets.

Green no-kill Animal Communities®

  • Our first Green no kill Animal Community will be built on 30 acres of beautiful open green spaces with multiple green designed buildings in Cherokee or Cobb County. Picture a fun and beautiful one stop place for all things pets. The 30 acres would be a place for animal and human interaction and physical activities such as dog shows, dog agility events, pet merchandise store selling pet food, pet clothes, pet treats etc. A building for dog training, people animal training, animal welfare education. An adoption store with adoption areas for local shelters and rescue groups to bring their pets for adoption. A food concession stand. A veterinary facility for public animal wellness exams, annual shots and exams. A spay & neuter facility. A green dog park, walking trails and lots of open and wooded spaces for events, fairs and other outdoor animal focus activities. Picture a Disneyland for animals and animal lovers to come together and spend the day together as a community.

RECYCLE A RESCUE 400DPI

Join the rescue and recycle green pets movement. Green Pets America Communities are made up of animal lovers, rescue groups and elected officials who are working together, not individually to implement the rescue – recycle no kill sheltering movement that has already saved tens of thousands of animals across America. We must create green pets communities across America that control the lives of animals where people live. The day that one shelter manager controls the lives of all the homeless animals in their community is over. That control over life and death cannot be left to our government shelters. That control over life and death of innocent animals must reside with the entire community. That is why we are creating grass-roots Green Pets America Communities, not just single shelters.
