10 Year Anniversary Celebrated by Green Pets America

10 Year Anniversary Celebrated by Green Pets America. Green Pets 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 is in its name.  Pets; or more appropriately named 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 have 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.

Green Pets helped children needing service dog to help them live to the best of their abilities.

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 in 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.

As Green Pets takes a moment to look back on the last 10 years, we look to the future not the past. We work for and look forward to the bright and shining day when our companion animals will  be cared for with compassion and have a right to life, just as we do. Our companion animals teach us how to live with one another in peace. They teach us unconditional love for ourselves and for one another.


Animal Welfare Book Rescue Renew Rehome

Animal Welfare Book Rescue Renew Rehome 3rd edition just released.

Written by the founder of Green Pets America Charities, celebrating 10 years of caring for animals and families in need.

Animal welfare is about Compassion for animals.

COMPASSION

Compassion: To suffer together.  It’s the feeling that arises when we are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering.

Compassion is not the same as empathy, though the concepts are related. While empathy refers to our ability to take the perspective of and feel the emotions of another person, compassion is when those feelings and thoughts include the desire to help.

Neuroscience has shown that when we feel compassion, our heart rate slows down, we secrete the bonding hormone oxytocin, and regions of the brain linked to empathy, caregiving, and feelings of pleasure light up: resulting  in our desire to approach and care for other’s.

RESCUE RENEW REHOME – COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS – Available now on Amazon Books.

Video How to train a puppy in 7 Easy Steps

At Green Pet we just came across this quick Video how to train a puppy in 7 Easy Steps. We hope you enjoy it. The key in training puppies is to have patience with them. Use one word commands. Never yell at them. And last keep them to a consistent daily routine. Take them out to go to the bathroom the same time every day and always from the same door. At first you will need to take them out every two hours to start the training routine. Good luck and have fun.

About Green Pets America Foundation

Why does Animal Welfare Continue to Get Worse

For those of us whose mission is to protect the lives and provide well-being to our fellow animals, there’s a troubling question we’ve asked ourselves for a decade: Why does Animal Welfare Continue to Get Worse? 
 
Why, despite the continuing work of animal welfare, animal rights, the green movement, and ecological groups, does the animal situation, Globally and in America continue to get worse not better?

To change this societal issue Green Pets America Charities educates school age children and adults that the brutal treatment of our companion animals is a deep seeded psycho social issue that must be addressed before meaningful and lasting change will occur.  At Green Pets we show via our programs the direct scientific link of animal abuse to domestic abuse.  And the direct scientific link to species discrimination and race discrimination.Why does Animal Welfare Continue to Get Worse

Green Pets America Charities

Green Pets America Charities.

The vision of Green Pets America Charities is to legally secure personhood for all companion animals in America extending to them a right to life.

To that goal Green Pets America has created “CARLA – Companion Animals Right Life Act”. We lobby State by State and Nationally to enact laws that give all companion animals the legal classification of “Personhood”, which will give them protection from harm, cruelty and euthanization without due process of law.

As the 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 animals 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 disposed of by the shelters at will. When we pass the Companion Animal Right to Life Act, CARLA setting in place the “Personhood Law” and classify them from things to personhood, then and only then will we stop killing America’s companion animals.

Please Join with green Pets America as we educate, fight and lobby for a right to life for our companion animals.
