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.

Hi. My name is Teresa Hurley, and I am the proud owner of Cowboy (dog). He's such a wonderful part of our family, especially since our children are grown. We call Cowboy our son. About 5 years ago, a cow kicked Cowboy's left front leg, severed a nerve, and paralized the leg. There have been no problems until August, 2016, when he got a serious wound on the leg. Antibiotic treatment has been unsuccessful, deteriorating tissue & gangrene set in. The leg must be amputated to save Cowboy's life. Because of the expensive surgery, I immediately applied with RedRover.org for assistance. With the help of Laurel at redrover, the application was accepted and redrover has approved a generous donation to Cowboy's surgery. This donation has taken a large burden from the the cost of the surgery. RedRover.org is a great organization and I hope to be able to give back to them some day.

An excellent caring staff that goes above and beyond by also providing empathy training along with its animal care resources. I got some precious extra time with my beloved 13-year-old chinchilla, Rainer, an age goal he would not have met without RedRover's caring and helpful staff. I wish them all the best and hope I may contribute back to such a wonderful organization someday.

From the ease of sending the first note, to the quick reply of the return email, to everything being clearly explained, in my fear of losing my little 12-year-old home-born pet chinchilla due to being deeply immersed in my own medical expenses, RedRover absolutely came to the rescue. Without that assistance there would be an empty cage in my home. Rainer needed dental care, and he got it through the good graces of RedRover. And learning more about the organization, wow, what great work they do! Empathy is a nice thing!

They were quick and easy, and came through just in time to save my pet's life, who needed an emergency procedure I couldn't afford.

RedRover gave me hope that there are still good people out there in the world. They helped me with more than 50% of my ferret's surgery. He (Grizzly) is scheduled to have his life saving surgery next week and it's all thanks to these GREAT PEOPLE who care for GREAT PETS! I plan on donating back once I get my feet back on the ground to help replenish the fund. Me and Grizzly are forever grateful and we will never forget what RedRover did for us! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OUR OUR HEARTS! =) We LOVE you guys!

I became familiar with Redrover with THE STANDS APP ON CHROME. I emailed them and was emailing back and fourth with a nice gentleman there, he asked me for suggestions to add to the app which I gave him many, I support THE HUMANE SOCIETY through just surfing, signing petitions email, browsing on my lap top, it's safe, FREE and awesome way to give back Thanks Redrover!!!

I am a rescuer, a foster mom & I have a farm of my own. I took in a wandering male German Shepherd in the hopes of finding his people. One morning I let him out onto my fenced property for exercise & bathroom duties and when I went to check on him, he was bleeding from his eye. I do not know what happened but I assume the injury was from the neighbor's dog who has been known to come through or under my fence. I quickly took him to my vet where he had to have an eye enucleation. I spend a lot of our own money on rescues, fosters & TNR for feral cats but since I am unemployed & my husband was recently laid off from his job; I contacted Red Rover to ask for assistance. Laurel contacted me almost immediately & walked me through the process of what they needed to help with "Terminator's" surgery. She was kind, compassionate & listened to my nervous & heartbroken ramblings. She has been helpful with advice & reassuring me with every phone call & email. Laurel & Red Rover were a Godsend since we are currently living on savings only. Red Rover has allowed me to continue my "work" as a rescuer even though money is tight right now. Terminator came through his surgery fine and seems to be adapting to only having one eye. If he is not claimed by his owner or adopted. He will be neutered and have a loving forever home with us on the farm. Thank you Laurel & Red Rover! God Bless You!!!

I am so thankful for RedRover for quickly helping me to get the funds available to treat my service dog who is currently suffering from Heartworms. Went to get her on heartworm prevention only to find she already had heartworms, being laid off this time of year is extremely difficult being a single mother to a toddler and 2 dogs, I am forever grateful and thankful for these people. So kind and easy to talk to!

We contacted Red Rover while trying to help a beagle dog who had taken shelter on our front porch. He had a combination of health issues. Heartworm positive. Teeth that needed either pulled or desperately cleaned. He was neutered and he was covered in ticks. Red Rover came to "Dooper's" rescue. Within a very short time after submitting our application, Dooper was approved for a grant for medical costs. Dooper has finally completed all stages of treatment and has settled in well with our family. Thank you Red Rover for helping to save a life.
