Hi, I’m Steven Monahan, the founder & executive director of Green Pets America Charities. We are a Humane Society and pet food pantry since 2004, caring for animals and feeding the precious pets of families in need.
Our vision mission is “Enriching the Human and Pet bond” We are a nonprofit 501c3, and Gold Star rated, in the top 1% of all nonprofit organizations.
We need the community and kind people like you to support us in our mission to feed pets and families in need. Our community has many needs and reasons for pet food, or temporary vet care needs. Some of the needs are caused by permanent or temporary financial problems, medical illness, disabled, temporarily out of work, on duty in the military, or dealing with illness or unexpected medical bills or hospitalization.
We provide food directly or through our local food pantries.
Please make a donation today so we can purchase cans and bags of wholesome pet food for those in need.
Thank you, Steven Monahan, Executive Director, Green Pets America Charities, Woodstock, Georgia
Why we founded the Green Pets America Pantry.
After surviving a terminal illness my perspective on life; and with that, my purpose dramatically awakened. I left the corporate world as a fortune 100 executive, and created a green, organic focused people and pets nonprofit food pantry. At that time food pantries did not carry pet food for the people they served. So, we saw the need and started one ourselves. Our approach was also different. In addition to our having a physical building for our community to come by to pick up pet food, we also created a Meals on Wheels program, delivering pet food to the elderly, invalid, mentally or physically challenged, or those without transportation who cannot drive to get it themselves.
A few years later we expanded our mission and added a death row shelter rescue group. Our focus was rescuing death row shelter dogs. We pulled shelter dogs on the shelters red list: the dogs that were not adopted and scheduled to be killed in three days. We rescued them from the shelter, vetted them, trained them, moved them to safe foster homes, and then adopted them into loving homes. We named this journey back home; “Rescue, Renew, Rehome” Having survived a near-death experience myself I was drawn to help death row dogs receive the mercy of a second chance at life as well.
Today, the Green Pets America focus is on “enriching the Human-pet Bond” by providing pet nutrition talks in schools, pet care programs in our schools and general community, supporting Dr. Good’s Homeless Pet Clubs in middle schools, and providing no-cost nutritious healthy pet meals for those in need through our Green Pets America, Pet Food Pantry.
