Making good matches is imperative to successful relationships.  At GDRP we work hard to guide you in finding the right dog for your family and lifestyle.


about us

At Green Dog Rescue Project (GDRP), we aim to rebuild hope for homeless dogs where it’s been damaged or lost.  To do this, we provide rescue, care and housing for dogs of all sizes and ages in a non-kennel facility, as well as medical and behavioral rehabilitation when needed.  We also work with those who see a need to change an antiquated sheltering industry by providing the environment and methods to learn how to make real change. We believe that the traditional sheltering model of housing animals in cages or glass closets does not truly benefit the needs of homeless animals, and that we have a responsibility to understand dogs' basic and natural need to be part of a social pack.  We  can offer education and training to sheltering industry professionals and volunteers that has proven to increase adoptions, staff morale, and healthier animals, while decreasing the number of animals being euthanized.  Our focus also lies on community education, including the next generation of junior volunteers. At Green Dog Rescue Project, we firmly believe that an ocean of change can begin with a single drop.


To create change we need a community of support.  Our volunteers are compassionate, dedicated, and the backbone of our success. 

Who We Are

The Green Dog Rescue Project (GDRP) is the nation’s first predominantly non-kennel shelter facility and educational center. We are proving that change is good.
