WHO IS THE GEORGIA PET COALITION?

 

 

Watch the long version of our second video about who we are and listen to a message from Victoria Stilwell, Professional Dog Trainer and Member of our Board of Directors.

 

 

OUR MISSION

 

 

To pass animal protection laws through professional and grassroots lobbying, educate law enforcement and the public and to support spay/neuter initiatives.

 

 

 

OUR VISION

 

 

To make Georgia a top tier state in animal protection laws.

 

 

 

WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

 

 

The Georgia Pet Coalition (GPC) is a unique statewide partnership wholly dedicated to legislative advocacy on behalf of companion animals. We work to end animal abuse before it begins. Our IRS status as a 501(c)4 allows us to fully utilize a professional lobbyist, in combination with grassroots advocates, to promote humane legislation to state lawmakers. Georgia has hundreds of 501(c)3 animal welfare organizations but their lobbying efforts are limited by law and electioneering is entirely prohibited. The GPC is nonpartisan and comprised of an all-volunteer board of directors and staff. Your donations are the sole source of support for our professional lobbyist.
