Green Mountain Animal DefendersWorking to Protect the Well-Being of All Animals Since 1983
Green Mountain Animal Defenders is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization that has members and supporters throughout the state of Vermont.
Believing that all animals have intrinsic value and therefore are worthy of protection from harm, we use our statewide network to help animals of all species.
Since our founding in 1983, we have been accomplishing our mission by:
maintaining a statewide, volunteer-run organization, which allows all donated funds to benefit animals directly
sponsoring spay/neuter programs
offering referrals and advice for rehoming and adoptions
providing information and outreach to help lost or found pets make their way home
managing and activating a grassroots network of animal advocates throughout the state to support animal protection
providing rescue and transportation services for animals, including wildlife
sponsoring the toll free hotline for Vermont Humane Federation's Vermont Animal Cruelty Response System: 1-877-9-HUMANE
We encourage all people to promote humane choices and raise awareness of animal welfare issues through education, advocacy, outreach, and collaboration.
