I have volunteered with RedRover since 2007. I have found the office staff to be very knowledgeable and professional, the field staff to be skilled, compassionate and organized, and the mission to be direct, critical and easily communicated and executed. In a world where the celebrated volunteer is the one in the field pulling animals from burned and flooded areas, RedRover is filling an unsung yet critical need of providing emergency sheltering for those rescued animals. Without these sheltering services there would be no rescue. RedRover volunteers are team players and know their value, whether they are preserving evidence in a cruelty case, feeding and cleaning disaster animals or providing comfort for evacuated animals and their humans. This organization is well-managed, smartly-staffed and highly-respected.

I work a lot with Morris Safe House in Lubbock, TX. and can really say that this is one of the best rescue groups in our city!!! Every dog that they take in is fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and treated for everything before they are adopted. I have a "Morris Mutt" and can tell you that he got the best care before I adopted him. Any body that tells me they are looking for a new forever buddy, I tell them they have to see Sallie!!

Red Rover Readers is an outstanding program for children. It should become part of the curriculum for all 50 states! Nicole and Karly teach the program with enthusiasm and dedication. Their haard work should be rewarded as they continue to expand and touch the lives of so many children. Cheryl Ceko, Humane Society Calumet Area, Munster, IN.

Red Rover is fabulous. Lifeline grants for people with pets in need of medical who can't afford it, supporting women and their pets who are trying to get out of domestic abuse situations, providing on site emergency sheltering for animals in crisis in natural disasters, hoarding cases, puppy mill seizures, helping communities become educated on disaster preparedness plans including their pets, the My Dog Is Cool Campaign to educate the public on the dangers to pets left in hot cars, Red Rover Reader Volunteers who are educating our children about responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of animals, promoting animal adoption, and last but certainly not least, the Red Rover Reporters campaign which encourages people to report situations of abuse and neglect and offers financial incentives to encourage witnesses of animal cruelty to come forward. What is NOT to love about this organization and its volunteers? I have been on one depolyment for Red Rover, and I am truly amazed at the way everyone in the organization mobilizes and comes together to provide care for these animals in crisis.

After being draggged kicking and screaming saying 'oh I just cant handle seeing animals abused' to a RedRover orientation several years ago, I learned I could handle 'it' and have deployoed several times since then on cruelty seizures. I encourage any animal lovers out there to stop sitting around crying watching programs on Animal Planet and get involved to make a positive impact on the lives of the animals dealt a bad hand by humans. Trust me= the feeling knowing you have been a part of caring for little victims of greed is a much better feeling than being helpless to do anything for the animals you see on TV!!!!

The entire EARS organization is a SUPER group to work with. They maintain 'organized chaios' in emotional, unexpected situations that arise in animal cruelty seizures. I am truly blessed to have attended their workshop in Waco TX in JUNE 2009 and become a part of a super organization..

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A few weeks after attending an EARS seminar in WACO TX in JUNE 2009 I found myself at my first 'rodeo' at a puppy mill seizure in Ft Worth TX-the 'organized chaos' amazed me as did the dedication of the EARS volunteers to care for dogs-and one another.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The friendships I have formed with fellow EARS volunteers will stay with me forever. We are all on the same page-to do whatever we can to help animals..

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

From all walks of life but with the same focus -help animals in their time of need.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do so much more to educate the general public about the issues that cause the unspeakable animal cruelty we as EARS volunteers have witnessed first hand and also allow more funding during seizures and natrual disaster temporaty animal sheltering.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, I wanted to help the animals that were left behind and stranded with no food, sitting on the roofs of houses. I couldn't go to help out at that time, but I knew that I wanted to help animals who couldn't help themselves. I looked online to find out how I could help animals and I found United Animal Nations, now RedRover. The first training that I was able to attend close enough to home was In June of 2010. I have been on 2 deployments of puppy mills rescues. Helping these animals has opened my eyes to the neglect that these poor dogs go through living in terrible conditions and having no social contact with people. Seeing a dog that comes out of it's shell and warms up to you after what it has been through is something that I can't even explain. These dogs learn to trust again. Some of these dogs have never stepped foot on grass. Just knowing that they have a second chance at a loving and caring home and knowing that they will no longer have to live in crates with wires under their feet 24/7, warms my heart. I am so proud to be a RedRover Responder and if there are people out there have a love for animals and want to help, I would recommend becoming a RedRover Responder. It has truly changed my life. Thank you to a wonderful organization that helps bring animals out of crisis!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes, every dog that I came in contact with had a huge effect on me. Scared and frightened dogs that have no idea who you are or what you are doing slowly showing signs of trust and unconditional love. I have met so many wonderful volunteers who are all there for the same reason, to help animals. I am still in contact with a few of the volunteers that I met on my deployments.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

These experiences that I had on RedRover deployments make me want to go on every deployment that I am asked to go on. I have grown up with animals and I have such a love for them. Being able to help animals that can not help themselves and knowing that they will be living their life in a better place, makes it all worthwhile.

I have deployed as a Red Rover Responder 7 times in less than 8 months. What a great organization; very appreciative of their volunteers and always putting them and the animals' care and safety first.
I am very proud to wear my red shirt when on any deployment!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have met so many hard working, good-hearted, and genuinely wonderful people on my deployments. Whether they be the shelter managers, team leaders, other volunteers or those in the community, I have connected with so many people and established relationships that have continued long after demobilization.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Each deployment is unique and offers different experiences. The work is very hard but also more rewarding than anything I've ever done. I truly feel appreciated by the organization, the communities affected and of course, the animals we interact with. Knowing that I helped in making a positive change in the animals' life is worth the time and effort.

I always feel the $$ I send are very well-spent. UAN does not have fancy offices, putting their $$ into caring for animals in crisis. It is an honor to be able to help this group.

During the 97 CA floods. Fantastic rescues.

I have volunteered with UAN Emergency Animal Rescue Service since 2005. I have deployed three times. Each time I have been impressed byt the professionalism and organizational capabilities of UAN EARS as well as the professionalism and capabilities of my fellow volunteers. Animals are taken care of, volunteers are provided for--I can't ask for much more in a disaster situation. I've never worked harder in my life and been happier about it. We make a difference--a HUGE difference.

Volunteering for UAN's EARS (Emergency Animal Rescue Service) gives me a sense of purpose and hopefulness. With all the inhumanity in the world (towards people as well as animals) it's good to know organizations like UAN exist and that they are working hard to bring kindness and second chances to animals in need.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the impact UAN sheltering can make in an animal's health and happiness. Dogs and cats who come in hungry, dirty, afraid and in need of vet care can almost magically transform into content pets after a few days of good food, comfort and loving care.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

using my skills to directly improve the life of animals in need.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

well-trained, dedicated and fun to work with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

educate so many people (young and old) to treat animals with kindness.
