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.

I am a case worker at the Family Violence Center in Birmingham, AL. I have used Red Rover twice for two of my clients. Each time, they have made this a smooth transaction not only for the client but also for me. This has often been a need that we have had difficulty fulfilling but with the assistance of Red Rover we have had clients leave abusive situations knowing that their beloved pets would be secure and safe. The client that Red Rover assisted with this time was from a rural area of Alabama and would not leave without her dog. She wanted to relocate out of the state to be closer to family support system. Red Rover was able to provide financial assistance so the client and I could secure resources for client to relocate. Client was able to rest knowing that her pet was being taken care of at a nearby pet clinic. Client and dog are know safe with family outside of the area. Thank you so much to Red Rover and specifically to Esperanza who assisted me with this process.

If you are considering making a donation to a pet agency, we strongly recommend RedRover! Thanks to their financial assistance, we were able to assist a victim of Domestic Violence and her pet escape an abusive situation. Unfortunately, our agency doesn't have the funds to assist pets, but THANKS to RedRover’s financial assistance our client's pet was able to go to a safe place while we worked with our client. The staff at RedRover is friendly, fast and considerate. Great work, Redrover!
