Welcome Green Monsters! We're your online guide to making conscious choices that help people, animals and the planet.

First and foremost, do not adopt an animal unless you are 100 percent prepared to be in it for life. What is “it?” It means that you promise yourself (and your pet) to wholeheartedly commit to love and care for an animal and to not give up on them just because they ate your new shoes. Educate yourself on everything you need to know before adopting any pet and how to be a responsible pet parent to avoid breaking a pet’s heart.

A short video launched by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) shows a frustrated couple dealing with what appears to be a dog just being a dog. They are clearly not happy with the constant messes and seemingly decide to abandon their furry family member on the side of the road to rid themselves of the “nuisance,” but you will be shocked when you see the ending.

Pet abandonment is a big problem all over the world; don’t be one of those irresponsible people contributing to this issue. Think about this: you (hopefully) wouldn’t abandon a child or elderly parent on the streets. Then what makes it OK to dump off a pet who is also a family member? How would you feel if your family abandoned you?

Animal cruelty, neglect, abuse, and abandonment are crimes that must be reported to the proper authorities or contact an animal cruelty hotline. If it’s safe to do so, do what you can for the animal until help arrives.

Be responsible. Be compassionate.

"The ending will shock you..."

No. Not at all. It was 100% obvious what the ending was going to be.

@John, you\'re a jackass and are probably the type of person that abandons pets. The human race is the problem, so quick to give up then to push through and look for a solution.

This video say it all! Pets/Animals have hearts, memories, feelings, and love to give. If your not in it for the long run-don\'t get a pet.

I loved this ad because animal neglect and cruelty is getting to be so commonplace. I am disgusted every day when I open up the newspaper or read online about how someone dropped off their dog at the side of the road and kept right on going, how they put chemicals on the dog\'s back and then lit it on fire, etc. IT REALLY MAKES ME SICK!! I have a dog and I love him with all my heart, I rescued him when he was 3 months old and one day when he was 6 months old, I was walking him and he saw another dog and I turned away for a moment and he took me with him. I landed on the concrete street was taken to the E.R. and after several X-Rays, I was told I had a broken rib, a broken hip and my right arm was hurt so bad I could not even lift my fork to eat. The following day I had surgery on my hip where they placed a huge rod and several people had the nerve to ask me "so, are you going to get rid of your dog?" And I just looked at them and said "NO, WOULD YOU GET RID OF YOUR CHILD THE MINUTE HE DID SOMETHING WRONG?" My dog Jovy was doing what comes naturally to him by RUNNING! Now, if you see him he is 5 years old, weighs 85 pounds and walks right by my side (and he is a LAB/POINTER MIX) so he is a big boy! But as big as he is that\'s how gentle he is as well. PLEASE STOP HURTING THE ANIMALS!! THEY ARE INNOCENT AND ONLY WANT TO BE LOVED!! PLEASE STOP THE CRUELTY AND NEGLECT!!

My cat was a shelter pet. She is just a year now, and I don\'t regret a day we have had her.
She put her paws on a very nice dress and coat. and she had shredded two pairs of shoes.
She also has pretty much shredded a chair.
However, she is a beloved member of our family, and when we got her, it was for better or worse.
No return.
(Guess what, she is really smart. She plans her moves, and when you watch her, it is evident.)
Would not trade her
