About the Project
The Red Dog Project is a collaborative effort between private foundations, businesses and individuals passionate about helping high risk, or “project” dogs throughout America by rescuing them from shelters and pounds and teaching them basic socialization skills. The program mission it to find perfect forever homes for the dogs while also providing a meaningful experience for those who care for them. All costs associated with the program are paid by the charity Dog Days Adoption Events, a 501(c)3 organization located in Connecticut.
Our fosters are trained in best practices for rehabilitating dogs using program techniques for behavioral modification as well as training routines as defined by CLASS (Canine Life and Social Skills) training curriculum.

About the Dogs in Our Program
All dogs in the THE RED DOG PROJECT and at DOG DAYS events are up to date on all age appropriate shots, spayed or neutered, dewormed, heartworm tested and usually microchipped. We expect good health but dogs are living beings and, as such, they may feel punk after the stress of an adoption event and/or a new home. Make sure you speak with our representative before at the adoption check out table so they can review your veterinary paperwork to answer any of your questions.
RED DOG PROJECT dogs have been in foster for a few weeks before they come available for adoption. They have been taught basic commands like “sit”, “leave it”, “wait” as well as good manners: no jumping etc. They are usually housebroken but may have accidents when placed in a new and unfamiliar environment. We will give you a notebook from the dog’s handler detailing the dog’s daily schedule, general characteristics and specific likes and dislikes.
We will send a volunteer to your home a few weeks after the adoption to see how everyone is adjusting and answer any questions you may have about your new family member. Please remember that all of these dogs have come from high kill shelters or desperate living situations and it’s only in their best interest, and yours, that we confirm the adoption match was a good one.
