Dog & Love in a Church

I find this both terribly sad and yet wonderfully inspiring at the same time.

Never ever let someone tell you animals do not have feelings and intelligence.

It’s not every day you’ll see a dog in church, but in the small town of San Donaci near Brindisi, Italy, it’s a regular occurrence.

A 12 year-old German Shepherd named Tommy goes to Mass nearly every day and sits patiently by the altar. He goes there out of love, he is just waiting for his master. But the real story behind his reason will break your heart

The reason Tommy attends Mass at this church is because it’s where he last saw his owner.

The reason Tommy attends Mass at this church is because it's where he last saw his owner.

Her funeral was held here.

Her funeral was held here.

Now, he diligently waits for his master to come back. He curls up by the altar to wait for Maria.

Now, he diligently waits for his master to come back. He curls up by the altar to wait for Maria.

Tommy is there every day and waits patiently through all of the church services, keeping a silent watch and waiting for her.

Tommy is there every day and waits patiently through all of the church services, keeping a silent watch and waiting for her.

The loyalty and love dogs possess is unlike anything else in the universe except the reality of “love”.

Each sanctuary & village will include:

  1. Agility Park & Arena for regional animal events
  2. Pet store selling pet food, pet clothes, pet treats etc.
  3. A building for dog training and people animal training.
  4. An adoption store with adoption areas for local shelters and rescue groups to bring their pets for adoption.
  5. Green building for 25 rescue animals.
  6. Dog friendly restaurant
  7. Veterinary facility for public animal wellness exams and annual shots.
  8. Spay & neuter facility for the public & rescue groups
  9. Green dog park, multiple walking trails, and lots of open and wooded spaces for events, fairs and other outdoor animal focus activities.
  10. 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.

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.
