Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Children & Youth, International, International Relief, Scouting

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.

Red Rover is a blessing! Rachael was exceptionally nice and understanding of our situation. And responded with help almost immediately. Which gave me the exact hope I needed to know that Leyna actually could have her surgery!! What a relief indeed. She had a tumor spring up between her eye and ear about the size of a nickel and was dangerously close to the eye itself. Needless to say I was starting to panic for her and being out of work to temporarily be caregiver to our elderly dad full time left funding for a pets expensive surgery obsolete.. At my wits end a friend mentioned about Red Rover and oh am I so glad they did !! She has had her surgery and is doing great. Hasn't hardly left my side.. I love this little feline whom I found "dumped" in a shopping cart at a grocery store when she was kitten. so I'll just say once again how grateful I am to you guys for helping me to help her once again...survive..

My cat, Lafayette, was suffering with repeated bladder blockages, and needed a surgery that was way out of reach for me, since I am disabled and on a fixed income. Red Rover jumped in to help as soon as I contacted them. They paid a deposit and got the vet to work with me on payments so I can save my fluffy baby boy. I am FOREVER grateful for all their help and support during this trying time.

I am disabled due to Cerebral Palsy, and just 3 days ago, my cat and only companion got sick with a backed up bladder. Without treatment he would have died a painful death. I contacted RedRover and heard back from them in just a few hours. The emails were compassionate and kind. They quickly approved me for a grant to help pay Lafayette's vet bill and got in touch with the vet to arrange it very fast. I was able to pay for my kitties vet bill and assure him a great and happy life because of Red Rover. Thank you so much!

We were able to use Red Rover Safe Escape Grants for our client's beloved pet while she sought temporary safety fleeing a relationship of intimate partner violence. Without this service, I doubt our client would have left a very dangerous situation.
I am so glad to know this program is available for all family members to seek safety during such a trying time.
Thank you again Red Rover !

Redrover was a lifesaver literally. Our cat Fluffy had swallowed a small rubber stopper that cause a intestinal blockage and was in desperate need of surgery. The the deposit for surgery was more then half of what my husband and I make in a month and the vet wouldnt do the surgery without the deposit. We contacted Redrover and Laurel called me back with in a few hours and Redrover was able to help us out dramatically. I am writing this while Fluffy is in surgery. I will post a followup on the Redrover site after he is home and happy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My dog Rue was on the verge of dying. She had pyometria and I found myself in a horrible predicament. I could only afford part of the cost for the surgery that meant life or death for her. I contacted Redrover not sure what to expect. I received a response from Laurel right away. She was so sweet and helpful. I let her know what was going on and I needed help to save my Rue that I love soooo much. They helped me in a heartbeat. Thanks to Redrover's contribution, Rue is now healthier than ever. This is a terrific foundation!!! Please donate if you are able. And please, get your dogs spayed and neutered, don't find yourself in the predicament that I was in. Rue is 14 and was never spayed and because of this, I almost lost her. So please, please, have your dogs spayed and neutered, it's the best thing you can do for them!! Thank you so much!!
