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.

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.[/vc_column_text][vcex_spacing][vcex_spacing][vcex_bullets]

We really would like to work with your shelter but we are out-of-state and would have to depend on your local volunteers to help us pull dogs.


General Information:

Because we are a small program we cannot rehabilitate aggressive dogs, nor do we have fosters for them. For that reason we need to see a short video of how the dogs get along with other dogs preferably the same sex.

Additionally all dogs need:

* Age appropriate shots
* Bordetella
* Negative Heartworm Test
* Spay/Neuter
* Deworming for all worms
* Health certificate before traveling to Conncecticut

Every dog coming into our program will need to have this form filled in – our volunteers will help you: RED DOG REGISTRATION FORM

Any information or support for transport, local boarding, local vetting etc. would be appreciated.
