Mission: 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
Programs: 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.

My family adopted a dog from our local animal shelter shortly after loosing a pet to a medical issue. Copper came home and seemed happy and healthy at first. After a few days he began to act off and then began vomiting and refusing to eat. We located a vet that was open on Sunday and took him in. The vet tested him and told us he had Parvo. Treatment was needed immediately. Nearly $1500 was the estimate to bring him through the treatment. We managed to raise enough funds to get the first day of treatment started but were still a few hundred short of enough of a deposit that the vet would let us make payments on the remainder. Redrover was able to contact us and the vet and arrange to help out with the bill in just one day. Their efforts were enough to ensure that we could finance the remainder and continue to raise funds while Copper got everything he needed to fight the Parvo. Cannot say enough about this group. Without their help Copper would have been put down and my kids gone through the pain of loosing another pet.

My cat Muse was in a life threatening situation with a UTI. I had exhausted all available funds and had no way to pay for the immediate necessary vet care and hospitalization. The vet put me in contact with Red Rover and Laurel with RedRover approved a grant that provided enough of the funds necessary to make it possible for my critically ill fellow to get through this crisis. There are no words to express my gratitude... I would spend my last penny to save the life of my pets but this time it was not enough and RedRover made the difference in saving his life. Thank you!! I will support you financially when it is possible for me to do so.

My dog Jasper needed emergency surgery and I had no way of paying for it. I found RedRover online and they were fast, friendly and helpful. If it wasn't for them I don't know what I would've done, they're amazing. They've shown me that there are good people in this world.

Last Friday my beautiful angel, Romeo an 8 year old peek-a-poo had problems eating and was not him self. I began looking in his mouth and found four loose little teeth. After a rough night of pain and discomfort we were able to rush Romeo into the veterinary hospital to find out a diagnosis. We were told Romeo had Stage 4 periodontal disease with exposed bone. He had a terrible infection and required surgery. I was so scared and did not know how we were going to afford this emergency. I began searching google and found RedRover. I completed their on-line application, I was contacted immediately by Rachael who requested some documents. Rachael blessed Romeo with the emergency surgery he needed today, Wednesday, March 18, 2014. I am in tears (happy tears) writing this review because I know my beautiful boy will be healthy and happy again. Redrover provided me a with a huge blessing by helping pay for Romeo's surgery. I will pay this forward every chance I get to make sure I am part of this amazing organization helping other animals and their pet parents. Thank you Redrover for saving my Romeo.

My 4 year old Doxie was attacked a couple nights ago by a large stray. I had to pry the strays mouth off of my girl. I rushed her to the vet for care. X-ray showed my baby has a broken jaw in 2 places. 1 place requires screws to repair and the other requires a wire to repair. Fearful that I would not be able to have the surgery she so desperately needs, I turned to the internet. My prayers were answered when Rachel from Red Rover contacted me with the best news ever. My sweet baby will be able to have her surgery Tuesday morning and on her road to recovery. Words cannot express my gratitude to Red Rover. Without Red Rover I fear that I would have had to make a decision I was not prepared to make. THANK RED ROVER!!!!!

02/15/15 we got some bad news from our vet, Rocky, our dog was going to die if he did not have surgery asap. This happened over night. He was diagnosed with severe necrosis around his private area, deep edema absess with tissue. Major blood infection damage to urinary tract. My heart dropped to the floor. What am I going to do when I have no money, I came home & prayed & turned to the internet where I searched out foundations. Many of them did not want to help and many could not help. I came across Red Rover & submitted my story, they called me within a couple of days, I have began to lose hope. Laurel called me and gave me hope again. They are going to help our best friend, companion out for his surgery. He will be going in morning & start getting better. If it was not for Red Rover, Rocky would die. I am so gracious to all of their help & support. I would recommend them all the time. After we get through with this, we will definetly donate money to this foundation once a month so we can help Red Rover help other people like us. We would not have been able to go through with this if it was not for Red Rover.

Hi,
My name is Connie. I have a wonderful great dane named Jack that is not only my best friend but my service dog. He became very ill a week before Thanksgiving. I'm on disability so finances are very tight especially near the end of the month.i got him to the vet and found that he needed a specialized and very expensive antibiotics to treat his infection. At $9.75 a pill, and he needed 4 a day for 10 days, I was terrified that I was going to lose him. I contacted Red Rover and by the next day he was treated. I can never thank Red Rover for stepping in and helping me save his life. I will be eternally grateful .
