Green Mountain Animal Defenders (GMAD) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal advocacy organization based in Vermont which has been working to protect animals and the environment since 1983.
As Vermont’s largest all-volunteer animal protection team, GMAD works to raise awareness around companion animals, farmed animals, wildlife, entertainment and laboratory animals and to promote green living. GMAD hosts educational tables, animal protection events, and advocates for pro-animal legistlation. Our all-volunteer structure allows donations to directly benefit animals.
GMAD also helps animals directly by sponsoring spay/neuter programs and through adoption efforts. Countless cats, dogs, ferrets, mice, birds, rabbits, pigs, chickens, and assorted wildlife have been rescued through GMAD.
