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.

Thank you Red Rover for the help you have awarded myself and my little kitty boy Jonah. His surgery is scheduled for 5/14/14. I am so grateful for the financial help. I would never have been able to afford his surgery. I will update when he is back to his sweet little self after surgery.
What a wonderful program!

Thank You,
Jeanne Sauve and Jonah

I thought I wrote a review previously on here when my dog received a grant from RedRover, but I guess not.

Back in January, my dog was diagnosed with a bleeding tumor inside his small intestine. He was slowly becoming extremely anemic and weak, and was unable to eat, drink, or go to the bathroom without assistance. It got to the point where he needed an emergency blood transfusion and surgery to remove it over the weekend. I had managed to raise close to 3/4s of the procedure's costs (About $3200/3400) but did not have enough to cover the rest. Fortunately, RedRover, out of the about a dozen or so grants I applied to approved Lucky's case and funded the remaining costs. If it weren't for them and the donors who make this nonprofit possible, my dog would not be with me today!

RedRover really came through for me when my sweet Chloe needed and amputation done. They were very helpful and considerate when I spoke with them on the phone. I was frantic about getting the help my furbaby needed and they were there to help cover the costs of her surgery. I would recommend them to any one who is needing help, wanting to volunteer or anything else that they help with. My Chloe is healed from her surgery and happy and healthy.

Red Rover had help save my dog's life! I will always be grateful for the help they gave me. I am a college student that was working a minimum wage part time job. When my dog was ill, they helped me with the costs. She made a full recovery and is still alive today!

I was amazed at how quickly they resopned to my request. They really are here to help just as they say. My chihuahua Mimi Grace needed quick urgent care. She was given 2 day to live. She had gotten HGE. It comes on quickly and takes their life quickly. I explained how Mimi was my lifeline and my therapy dog in which she helps with BPD,PTSD, major depression and anxiety and keeps me frombeing suicidal. She is only 2yrs and i couldnt bare to loose her already! Without red rover she wouldnt be here with me today. Thank you red rover with all my heart. You not only saved one life bit two :) im so grateful...
