The Redefining Dogs Foundation (RDF) is a non-profit, 501 (3)(c-) on a mission. Specifically, the mission of RDF is to:

  • enhance shelter dogs’ adoptability; 
  • maximize shelter dog’s quality of life; and,
  • help shelter dogs reach their potential. 

Our focus is on teaching and learning how to exist harmoniously with dogs, particularly shelter and rescue dogs. To accomplish our objectives, we use a variety of methods that include: working on-site at animal shelters in collaboration with volunteers and staff, creating video materials, as well as writing about dogs and their connection to people.

The RDF offers a limited number of internships to qualified individuals who have an strong interest in working with shelter dogs. Please visit our "Intern Program" page at this website for more details.
