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 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.

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.

I am an elementary school teacher who recently received the Red Rover Literacy training. It was such a valuable experience! I have attended many trainings in my district in the past 3 years, and this was by far the most informative, interesting, and useful. The information about social and emotional learning, as well as the discussion strategies to encourage critical thinking can easily be applied to many areas of the curriculum. I appreciated being given highly engaging lessons that I can use right away. "Humane Literacy" is a fabulous way to promote empathy, critical thinking, and language skills in the classroom. I highly recommend this program to anyone who teaches children!

We are a private pet boarding business who tries to help families who must temporarily go to a shelter, but cannot take their pets. When space is available, we house these cats and dogs until other arrangements can be made. This spring we were helping a great dog and his mom this way, when we were contacted by RedRover, who offered to help offset our expenses by providing a grant to reimburse us. We were able to help for a much longer period because of this great organization. Please support and share RedRover's amazing work. As awareness of the need grows, perhaps our local governments will make funds available for these needful families, which include beloved pets (who are as important as any other family member)!

Ty RedRover. Fast response helped save my dog. She ended up with puss in her uterus that leaked into her abdomen. Without your help she would of died rather soon. I couldn't be more greatful for all the help to save my beautiful little girl.

Red Rover recently allowed one our Domestic Violence Shelter clients to leave her abusive home with her 2 dogs. They were boarded and well loved as she began her recovery process. Red Rover has helped our clients in the past and we are extremely grateful to them. Esperanza is amazing! Thank you, Red Rover!
