RedRover, formerly United Animal Nations (UAN), focuses on bringing animals out of crisis and strengthening the bond between people and animals through a variety of programs, including emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance and education.

Target demographics:

animals in crisis

Direct beneficiaries per year:

nearly 2,000 animals in crisis. In 2013, we deployed RedRover Responders volunteers to help more than 1,300 animals, including those affected by the tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma. In 2013, we also helped save the lives of more than 650 animals by awarding financial grants to help Good Samaritans, pet owners, animal rescuers and victims of domestic violence care for animals in life-threatening situations

Geographic areas served:

U.S. and Canada


Through RedRover Responders, we shelter and care for animals displaced by natural disasters and other crises, such as criminal seizures and hoarding cases. The RedRover Relief program provides funding to Good Samaritans, animal rescuers, pet owners and victims of domestic violence to help them care for animals in life-threatening situations. The RedRover Readers program helps children explore the bond between people and animals through stories and discussion. Volunteers visit elementary school classrooms, after-school programs, animal shelters and other venues to read to children and lead discussions -- helping children develop critical thinking skills and empathy.

Reviews for Redrover

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a RedRover Responder, which means that I have received training in emergency sheltering of animals and can be asked to deploy when needed in disaster/hoarding/cruelty situations. I have been VERY impressed with the professionalism of the small, dedicated staff of RedRover. They are invited to help in what are usually stressful situations for both the people and animals involved, and they are always calm, positive, encouraging, and resourceful. Their preparation is thorough and their assistance is consistent and reliable. The other volunteers I've met are from varied backgrounds, but their love of animals creates a common bond; differences are set aside for the sake of the animals. Volunteering with RedRover is uplifting and renews my faith in people!

Redrover came through for my dog Pesci, approving a grant for a much needed surgery, which I myself could not afford alone. It is organizations such as Redrover that are the angels looking out for those truly in need.
Pesci is more to me than an animal, he is my companion, my support, and my family.
Presently I am fighting breast cancer, I suffer from PTSD, and I am on SSDI. So what Redrover has done for Pesci and I can only be paid back with words of appreciation and gratitude. I am truly blessed for these angels that helped me at a critical time in my life.
Just knowing Pesci is going to be okay, is the most important reason for me to fight the illnesses that plague my life. I owe that to Redrover.
Thank you for all you have done for Pesci and for me.
Bless you all,
Bettyann Rosenthal

Thanks to Red Rover our family cat is back home now and on his way to making a full recovery!! The wonderful people at Red Rover saved his life!! He was hit by a car and in desperate need of surgery to save his life but financially we just couldn't afford it. So I was told about This organization and thought well it's worth a shot. So I put in my Aplication for the financial assistance and was contacted the very next day by a very nice woman who assisted me in finishing my app and then put through a grant check for $250 dollars for our cats surgery. My family and I are so very grateful to these people for helping us to save our cats life!! Without their support he wouldn't be here with us today. I would highly recommend them to anyone who was in a situation similar to mine or looking for a great orginazation to donate too. Again , most wonderful caring people and we will forever be grateful to them.

My beautiful cat named Zeus had to go to the emergency vet clinic last Wednesday . They found that he had blood in his bladder an was going into kidney failure. My little guy is only 6 years old so to hear this news was devestating. I was told that he needed a catheder as well as to stay there for 4days at the least. I did not know what do because I did not have the funds to take care of him an felt crushed. The vet had recommended a few places that could help.i did not want to put Zeus to sleep so I immediately started sending emails. The next morning I was speaking to Laurel from Red Rover an she had great news that they could donate to Zeus. I felt so blessed an thankful!! Words cannot express how grateful Zeus an I are. Red Rover is amazing an thanks to donators they saved his life :-D -Camille P.

I needed emergency surgery for my Yellow Lab, PrettyFace. RedRover responded to my application for assistance within 24 hours. Rachel was very kind, patient, and compassionate regarding my dog and my situation. She was able to talk to my vet's office (which was not very cooperative at some times) and get some funding for my dog's surgery. Red Rover was one of the only nonprofits that responded so quickly to my request and went the extra mile to help me out. I would recommend them to anyone. They are a VERY worthwhile organization to donate to or volunteer your time. They have inspired me to give back when I get back on my feet financially.

I work for a domestic violence agency in TX and red rover has been awesome for our clients with pets who are fleeing their abuser. Most recently they assisted a client of mine with a $410 kennel/vet bill. This was a huge relief to her, as she had no way to pay for her 2 dogs' care and couldn't keep them with her during her stay with us. Red Rover responded quickly to her needs and have been nothing but friendly and helpful to me as her case manager. I appreciate everything they do!

If not for red rover my lil girl wouldn't be here today!! My girl Suzi Q is 3 years old and about 2 weeks ago came the most devastating moment in my life when I was stunned when my girl stopped eating and her stomach was bloated and there was blood and discharge coming out of her private area. I looked for a reason everywhere until I came across serving that looked like all her symptoms it was a life threatening condition called PYOMETRA and it said if she didn't get surgery right away she would die. We went to a vet and they quoted the surgery are around 1200-3000 dollars and me just recently being laid off I had no money I was really scared crying looking for any thing I could possibly do to save my baby... Til I ran across red rover searching on the web for people who help with emergency vet situation. Immediately I filled out an application and someone called me the very same night and a very sweet lady told me she was there to help my baby girl get the help she needed right away :) so I went to the vet and had her surgery the next day now she is in the recovery process its been 4 days since her surgery and she is already getting better she is eating again and getting back to the same as she was before this horrible thing happened thank you red rover!!!! You guys are my angels I don't know what I would have done without my baby girl. The vet said she would have died had I not got her in within the next day or too. THANK YOU!!!

I just wanted to thank everyone at Red Rover for their caring assistance. I live in Verona Pennsylvania a small suburb outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. We do not have many programs that provide financial assistance for vet assistance othert han spade and nuetering. My dog needed dental surgery and I could not afford to have the surgery. I went online filled out the application and they responded in such a short period of time. I was shocked. They were also be caring and patient. I am very appreciative to their help and am thankful to all they have been able to contribute. Without their help Chloe would not be smiling today! Thank you so very very much!

Thank you so for your help saveing my pug Sabrina. According to the vet she was was possibly hours close to death. And definitely would not have survived anouther night. The kindness of your organization helped save her life. She had surgery that removed the infection before it spread to the rest of her body.
I have progressive MS and don't know what I would've done without her in a way you helped save my life to; as the stress of losing her would have aggravated my MS. Your organization also showed me how many good people there are in the world. I can't thank you enough.
Sincerely Lisa
