Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge (ECWR) is honored to be recognized by the American Red Lion Disaster Fund for our efforts during and after Hurricane Michael. Their support provides funds desperately needed to provide the wildlife care we do. We evacuated our entire Refuge, animal ambassadors and all our rehabilitating animals with help of our staff, volunteers and interns. Thankfully, less than 24 hours after Michael's passage we were open for business again having suffered only minor flooding in our nursery. In the week following the storm it was unnaturally quiet in our refuge. We stood ready to respond to marine mammal calls, land mammals, birds, reptiles and more, but few calls came in. We monitored the status of our sister and brother animal organizations in the Florida Panhandle and provided daily updates via social media as they dug out of the storm wreckage. Finally we faced the sad truth that many of our native wildlife did not survive the storm. However as homeowners returned we found ourselves humbled by our community members bringing us injured critters when they themselves were reeling from the loss of their homes and neighborhoods. Since Michael's passage we've had over 140 animal intakes from across our NW FL coverage area including critters brought to us from the Panama City area.
ECWR's mission is education, conservation and rehabilitation for the welfare of Florida’s natural fauna. We rescue, rehabilitate and release native Florida wildlife in NW Florida. We're a not-for-profit organization made up of a caring staff and dedicated volunteers and are supported through the generous donations of local residents and businesses. We are so very thankful for American Red Lion Disaster Fund donation!
American Red Lion is nothing less but passionate about animal welfare. Their response to the recent hurricane natural disasters in rescuing animals was impressive.The company's compassion is admirable. ♥️
Tireless, compassionate, determined, caring - just a few words that describe the team members of the Red Lion Disaster Fund! Their commitment and dedication to supporting animals, in communities affected by disasters, is unparalleled. As an animal rescuer, I am so grateful for all the help provided by this organization and wish there were many more like it.
I am proud to be a sponsor of this great organization. They are always there when disaster strikes helping to rescue animals of all shapes and sizes.
At Paws Place Dog Rescue, our kennel facility was severely flooded by the impact of Hurricane Florence. We are well on our way to rebuilding our beloved rescue facility. It is only through the generosity of supporters such as American Red Lion Disaster Fund that we will be able to rebuild and continue our mission to rescue dogs, nurse them back to health and find loving, forever homes for them.
With Deepest Gratitude,
Operation Topcat has been in existence since 1995. Our mission is to help as many abandoned and feral cats/kittens as possible through T/N/R, micro chipping, rabies and distemper shorts, spay/neuter and Felv testing. As long as the kittens/cats are tame we place them in foster care to be eventually adopted to forever homes. Our feral cats are returned to their colony after they have healed.
American Red Lion came through for us in a time of need. Their help will enable us to do more for the cats and kittens that have been forgotten and for the feral colonies that were affected by Hurricane Florence.
We are very grateful for your help and wish you continued success.
Hurricane Florence hit our rescue hard. Not only was our home destroyed, forcing us to relocate the reptiles inside, but many of our foster homes had damage as well. We were trying hard to raise money for another building to house animals when American Red Lion Disaster Fund stepped in and provided the rest of what we needed. The first photo is one of the animals we took in after the storm and the second is the building we are buying.
We are so grateful to this organization for helping us rebuild our spay/neuter clinic that was flooded during Hurricane Florence. We serve every rescue group and shelter up to two hours away in every direction. The longer we stay closed the more it hurts all these homeless animals. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Adopt an Angel & Fix A Friend Spay Neuter Clinic
Our canine rescue org has been a non-profit since 2003 and we have been able to provide-rescue, rehab and adoption to hundreds of mid-sized mixed breed dogs in need. We have also assisted in funding "targeted" spay/neuter programs as well. While our main focus is now on spay/neuter we still have several adoptable canines. Our foster home sustained damage to our fenced areas due to trees falling during Hurricane Florence. We sure appreciate the donation from American Red Lion Disaster Fund to help with our repairs. Thank you so much for your commitment to helping so many in need.
Animals in need are helpless without us! American Red Lion bridges that gap so money goes exactly where it needs to go. What a great organization!
This is my go to place to donate for animals. There are so many scam websites that exist.
I know American Red Lion has done the research and will get their donations exactly where they are needed most. To help as many animals as possible when a disaster strikes!
Many thanks to American Red Lion for advocating on behalf of animals in crisis.
American Red Lion does fantastic work directly providing relief for animals after natural disasters. The founder has such passion for animals and it shows,
Words are not enough to show what great work they do --so look at this picture to see the before and after of the life of a rescued pup from last year's hurricanes! The lives of both animals and people are changed!

When Hurricane Harvey hit we were pretty certain we would try to take cats from Texas but little did we know we would be getting 30 cats from Jacksonville, Florida and 17 from Puerto Rico instead. The three-in-a-row Hurricanes were something no one expected. In part, because of a donation from American Red Lion, we were able to say "yes" to 47 cats who would never have made it out of those disaster areas. Thank you so much. This is a photo of two kittens: Manchita and Blanquita who came to North Carolina from San Juan. For more information about SAFE Haven for Cats visit safehavenforcats.org
One red lion is quickly becoming one of my favorite charitable organizations. It gives me the ability to search from multiple groups that need my help.
We are thrilled to be able to have networked with American Red Lion Disaster & Abuse Fund. When we needed emergency funding for the recent hurricanes, they stepped up and donated to Guardians of Rescue. As we continue our efforts now in Puerto Rico, we are grateful to all who have stepped up to help animals from disasters. American Red Lion Disaster & Abuse Fund is critically needed. Their work is vital to all of us in rescue.
This nonprofit is passionate in its quest to further protection of the most vulnerable of creatures in our world. Kudos to them!
ARL put in the extra mile when hurricanes were hitting the country. Endless research went into getting the funds into the right hands to save the animals. Thanks for the hard work!
I found American Red Lion to be "boots on the ground", immediately responding to animals in need and affected by the recent disasters. Of course, people are rescued first but it's so great to have an organization mobilized to help our cherished pets and animals. Thank you so much American Red Lion Disaster Fund for focusing on animals in despair.
Amazing start-up! The attention to detail, the communication, and the work going on behind the scenes is just unbelievable! Janelle: you are doing amazing things Lady!
