Hi, I’m Steven Monahan, Founder-Executive Director of Green Pets America Charities.
Green Pets America Charities was founded in 2007. After surviving a terminal illness the year before, my life views dramatically shifted. I left the corporate world where I was a fortune 500 executive and decided to start a non profit community based animal pet food pantry. We named it Meals Fur Pets. A few years later we expanded and started a death row shelter group as well. Having survived death I was drawn to help death row dogs receive the mercy of a second chance at life as well.

In addition to a food pantry and animal rescue group we have honored our local working Police K9s by providing a fenced safe rest area at the Woodstock police station for a K9 outdoor “Break Room”. With a large fenced space to relax the K-9’s no longer have to sit in a police cruiser for an extended time period while their handler completes arrest paperwork at the police station. Our police K9’s are 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.
Green Pets America Today
Today, beyond implementing immediate lifesaving strategies and programs, our focus is on uplifting animal welfare and animal sheltering from its unconscious past and leading it forward as an expression of societies enlightened 21st century love of its companion animals; as family members and sentient beings. Our primary focus now is to dramatically change the culture of animal sheltering in America. To that end we have developed a vision for a joining of municipal sheltering with the consumer pet industry. To spread our concept of a modern and compassionate no kill sheltering vision for this 21st Century we have published three animal welfare books: Rescue Renew Rehome, Art of the Black Dog.Project Black Dog Adoption.
In 2015 Steven wrote his first animal welfare book: RESCUE RENEW REHOME. The book lays out his vision for 21st century Celebration Villages across America. They will bring forth a new enlightened, compassion based thinking for animal welfare in America.
The book has received numerous 5-star reviews for its message of integrating pet retail with pet adoption to end pet homelessness in America.
In late 2017 Steven wrote his second animal welfare book, ART OF THE BLACK DOG, teaching about Black Dog Syndrome and the most euthanized shelter dogs in America. Numerous 5 Star Reviews received.
And in 2018 Steve published his third animal adoption book : Project Black Dog Adoption. This book brings education and awareness to our Project Black Dog adoption program to increase the adoptions of the least adopted most overlooked shelter dogs. 5 Star Reviews.
