We are an animal rescue, advocacy and education organization. Our mission is to advance the animal care system in America by the creation of regional no-kill rescue and adoption villages. They will be regional sanctuaries and include villages & shops where animal lovers will go to adopt, celebrate, care for animals, purchase services and products, and mingle with one another and bring their pets with them.Think Disney for pets
Each sanctuary & village will include:
- Agility Park & Arena for regional animal events
- Pet store selling pet food, pet clothes, pet treats etc.
- A building for dog training and people animal training.
- An adoption store with adoption areas for local shelters and rescue groups to bring their pets for adoption.
- Green building for 25 rescue animals.
- Dog friendly restaurant
- Veterinary facility for public animal wellness exams and annual shots.
- Spay & neuter facility for the public & rescue groups
- Green dog park, multiple walking trails, and lots of open and wooded spaces for events, fairs and other outdoor animal focus activities.
- Community meeting facility for animal events and educational seminars.
We believe the corner-stone to changing our animal care system in America will be the creation of these regional sanctuaries, where animal lovers can go to adopt, celebrate with indoor & outdoor animal events, care for animals and shop 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.
Our Village – will be built on 30 acres of beautiful open green spaces with multiple green designed buildings in North Georgia. 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.
Green Pets America was founded in 2006. Our mission is rescue, advocacy and reform. We work daily to end neglect, abuse, cruelty and exploitation of animals, ensuring that their interests and well-being are humanely protected as we work to end the 125 year old failed practice of euthanizing 4 million pets annually in America.
Green Pets America is a IRS Certified 501c3 nonprofit. We have been awarded the Gold Star seal for transparency and trust from Guide Star, America’s highest non-profit rating agency. Additionally Green Pets America received the humanitarian recognition from the State of Georgia Senate for serving Georgia’s families and animals.
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 can save over 4 million pets annually by creating adoption sanctuaries for celebrating, caring for and recycling not euthanizing Americas shelter pets.
Help us advance the animal welfare system in America.
