Hats off to longtime Green Chimneys friend and current board member Robert L. Vetere: not only did he recently receive a prestigious award, he also made sure Green Chimneys benefited!

This spring Bob, as president and CEO of The American Pet Products Association (APPA) and president of the Human Animal Bond Research Initiative (HABRI), received the Rolf C. Hagen Hall of Fame Award at the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida. This honor was given for Bob’s outstanding and lasting contributions to the pet industry and included a $20,000 gift from APPA to a nonprofit of Bob’s choosing. Cue Green Chimneys.

Thank you Bob and APPA; we have benefited from your loyalty and support for many, many years. This generous gift will assist our nature-based education programs as well as The Sam and Myra Ross Institute at Green Chimneys.
