“There is no shortage of horror stories within the world of animal welfare...

However there are also amazing stories.”



As the United States first predominantly NON-Kennel Shelter Facility,

Green Dog Rescue Project proves that change is good

one rescue dog at a time.


Countless dogs are being euthanized each day in shelters across the United States. This is a consequence of our mismanagement of their population, however also largely because we deem countless dogs "unadoptable" as we misread their behavior.

Prior to it's conception, co-founders of GDRP, Colleen Combs and Douglas Keane couldn't understand why so many dogs they worked with at shelters would continue to be euthanized despite their efforts at training and rehoming them. In 2013, they founded Green Dog Rescue Project in order to make a greater difference for humans and dogs by educating the public on proper socialization of dogs to prevent problem behaviors from arising in the first place while rehabilitating dogs who are caught up in the vicious cycle of the shelter system.
