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.

What an amazing organization! I am seriously so grateful for the help I received to get our kitty back in his feet and back to the healthy loving kitty he is. I will definitely be paying this forward. Rachael was extremely friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to get us the help we desperately needed. Words cannot express my gratitude

My Chihuahua, Princess loves everyone and brings a smile to everyone she meets! She loves to chase after her stuffed, red crab! She is so sweet and playful; however, due to her teeth becoming infected, and my inability to pay to have oral surgery for her-she became lethargic and was not the same, but was still kind even though she was suffering. Princess is not just a dog, she is a part of our family. I am so grateful for the generosity of Red Rover and its donors-now I will not have to suffer a heartbreak. Today, Princess will receive the surgery she so desperately needs thanks to Red Rover! Red Rover donors really help people. Thanks to Red Rover, our small family will remain 'in tact' and we will be able to enjoy Princess for many years to come!

My kitten Mitzi had a spay operation at a clinic where she got a life threatening infection and had to be hospitalized at my Vet's office. Such a large bill was quite a surprise and I had no idea how to pay it. Along with other fundraising options, I reached out to Red Rover for help. Like a safety net they were there! What a relief to get help when I was so desperate. So easy to work with, Laurel was wonderful! I felt at ease and not judged. Thank you so much for your help and I'm sure Mitzi would say thank you if she could.

I found out my cat had an overactive thyroid and the treatment is very expensive. I knew I couldn't afford it on my own, but I needed to get my cat the help that she needed so I looked into charities that help people in my situation. Thankfully, I came across RedRover Relief. The woman I worked with was so amazing, so helpful and so sweet, it felt like she really cared. The whole process was incredibly easy and fast. I am happy to say that last week my cat went in for her treatment and she is back home recuperating. I wouldn't have been able to do it so quickly and easily without their help. My cat and I are forever grateful

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.
