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.
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
Red Rover is wonderful. They responded the morning after I had sent a late night request in. Thanks to their help, Lilo is getting her surgery to remove her damaged eye and check for and treat a possible abscess in the eye socket. She is a young, sweet bunny and deserves a second chance at a long, healthy life.
Absolutely amazing. They responded so quick to my request. Kush and I couldn't be more thankful. Thank you Redrover!
Red Rover is absolutely amazing! The process of applying was quick and easy. The grant money helped Gus get the appropriate treatment for his injury. Red Rover was a very positive experience in a rather difficult situation. Gus came home today and I will forever be grateful for Red Rover for their help. ❤️

Red Rover has been amazing every step of the way. My baby Max (Labrador retriever) had to have emergency surgery on an obstruction in his belly and Red Rover not only helped by granting me the money but they were more than helpful with realizing the importance of time. Yall were so sweet and I'm so glad that you were there in my time of need!!! Keep up the good work!!!
Red Rover is wonderful! With their help and the help of some private donations, my Charlie Brown was able to have the surgery he needed. I had never heard of them until a fellow Basset Hound owner told me about them and I'm so thankful she did. Thank you for everything!
I'm just glad to be able to donate to this organization,thereby helping deserving pets and their humans.

Thank you Red Rover for helping my kitten Clay get the surgery he needed! Clay had swallowed a string from the blinds in my kitchen, as well as the plastic piece at the end! Red Rover donated money to help him get the surgery to remove it, and just in time too! We almost lost him! He is doing better now!! The 1st picture is the string and plastic piece they took out! The 2nd picture is Clay and his sister Jemma!
I first trained as a volunteer with Red Rover (UAN / EARS at the time) back in 2003. I finally deployed in 2010, then again in 2014 and again in 2015. I cannot express how proud I am to be part of such an amazing professional organization. Volunteers come from all walks of life, from all areas of North America, with varying degrees of experience and ability, for one common goal - animal welfare. Red Rover makes it not only work, but makes it work WELL.

I was fortunate to find Redrover after being told our pitbull needed emergency surgery. He had eaten a sock which got stuck in his stomach. The surgery was estimated at over $3,000, which s pretty tough to come up with unexpectedly. After contacting about 15 non profits claiming to help with emergencies like this, Redrover was the only one that stepped up and did help us. It helped bridged the gap so we could save our baby.
Thank you Redrover :)

My name is Brian, and I am a proud owner of a Beautiful Blonde Silky Terrier named, Little Shirley Shamrock. Shirley was diagnosed with a Golfball size stone in her Bladder, with the possibility of her bladder rupturing, and killing her... With only day before this kind of thing happening, and Little Shirley needing an emergency operation to remove this stone, and with no other place to turn, I heard of a place called RedRover, that maybe able to help me with the Vet bill, that was way out of my reach, due to being Low-income. Towards the end, I was told that if, I did love my little Shirley Shamrock, that I would just have to have put her down to stop her suffering. Before this would happen, I would do anything. So I sent a request to RedRover and told them about Shirley, and her needs . RedRover responed to my request the next day, and to my surprise RedRover sent a check to the Vet Hospital, and my Little Shirley got the surgery that she so badly need. Thank You RedRover.
