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.

They were very professional and very helpful with helping us find the funding to get the medical care we needed for Rosie. Laurel was very friendly and caring with any communication we had with her either vocal or in her emails to us.

I would recommend this organization to anyone who may need their help

They did what they said they would. Released a check to my vet on the same day I notified them that I had her surgery scheduled. They helped me when I really needed it.
Thank you RR!

I took the online training course for their RedRover Readers program and learned a lot about how to teach young learners to develop empathy for animals. I am really looking forward to putting this training to use.

When I found out that my lab Dabny had a mass cell tumor on her front leg and needed amputation I turned to Red Rover for help. Without them and their generous donors I would've had to say goodbye to my best friend and shadow. They saved my baby girl's life and for this Dabny and I are so very greatful and truly blessed.

My dog Storm needs surgery to have two rumors removed. I am a single mother of two, and simply don't have enough for the surgery. I came across Red Rover and because of their generous donation I can afford to get Strom the surgery she needs! She is scheduled for next week. I can't say enough how thankful I am for Red Rover! Thank you for being there for myself and Storm in assisting us!

My dog Thi was diagnosed with a splenic tumor a week ago. I was devastated as I had lost my job due to a car accident injury and funds were huge issue. Thanks to Red Rovers help we were able to get him into surgery. Unfortunately things did not go as planned in surgery. Once the surgeon opened him up they discovered his spleen was perfect but found the tumor was attached to his liver. If it wasn't for Red Rover help and kindheartedness we never would have made it this far. Thank you Red Rover. Your kindness and help means more than I could ever express.

I just recently reached out to Red Rover in need of help to pay for my dogs surgery. I work and live paycheck to paycheck and didn't know how I was going to afford my Snickers surgery. I researched online and found Red Rover, I applied and they responded in a quick manner. With all details checked I just received notification that Red Rover is helping with $200.00 towards Snickers surgery!. I am ever do grateful for their help. Many thanks for people and organizations who help support and donate to Red Rover. It's people like myself and my Shih Tzu Snickers who appreciate all those who give a helping hand when needed! Thank you again, Thank you Rachael for all you do :-) :-)

Red Rover is an exceptional organization! Words cannot express the gratitude I have for them! My dog Kura had been having UTI problems for a couple months and after several trips to the vet and different antibiotics, it was becoming a real worry. We got x-rays done and saw that she had very large bladder stones. Since they were so large, there was no possibility of her passing them or being dissolved, so she needed surgery ASAP. The longer the stones are there, the more possibility of a piece becoming lodged in her urethra causing a life threatening emergency. I am currently unemployed and just the trips to the vet for the xrays and antibiotics were killing me, so when it was determined she needed surgery, I was devastated and felt hopeless. I had no idea how I would be able to make that happen and my poor baby having to live in that pain everyday was just so sad. The good people at the vet I take her to suggested I try to get some assistance from a foundation. So, I reached out to Red Rover. They said they would be willing to contribute to her surgery and help save her life. Their staff is so compassionate and helpful, it is a wonderful reminder of all that is good in this world. I would not have been able to afford her surgery if it weren't for their contribution and Kura would still be in pain and in danger. Such a blessing! Kura had her surgery last week and is recovering beautifully now! If you are looking for a truly good organization to donate to, this one is it! They save our fur babies lives!
