Green Mountain Animal Defenders

Burlington, VT

Green Mountain Animal Defenders works to raise awareness about the plight of companion animals, farmed animals, wildlife, and animals used for entertainment or in laboratory testing and promote green living. GMAD educates the public on these topics and more by hosting educational tables, organizing animal protection events and campaigns, and advocating for pro-animal legislation on the state and federal levels.

Green Mountain Animal Defenders also helps animals directly by sponsoring spay/neuter programs and through our re-homing (adoption) efforts. GMAD’s all volunteer work force has rescued, rehabilitated, and/or placed countless cats, dogs, ferrets, mice, birds, rabbits, pigs, and chickens, as well as a wide assortment of wildlife and other animals in need.
