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.

My prairie dog was diagnosed with odontoma. Most people would say it’s just a “rodent”. No, she’s family and she shows affection and has her own personality. Surgery for her was very very expensive and this wonderful organization helped me to be able to afford this neccesary surgery to save her life. So so thankful and blessed.

I am so grateful that I came across Redrover. I didn't think I would get contacted by them. In desperate time in need I couldn't afford to pay for my cats surgery. But they helped me out A LOT. They even helped me find a affordable vet to take my cat to. I love my cat and I'm happy he's gonna be fine now. All thanks to Redrover. Again I am so grateful I came across this organization.

I am so grateful to RedRover whose significant financial assistance allowed me to get a life-saving surgery for my cat, Mylo. To those who are willing to donate, know that your money is truly helping those who need it. I look forward to being able to give back to RedRover when I am at a more stable point in my life. ❤️

I recently deployed to NJ to help pets evacuated from Puerto Rico. From the very first request for emergency responders to the closing meeting and everything in between, RedRover's leadership respectfully and effectively created an environment that simultaneously considered the well-being of its volunteers and the animals in need. Doing so created a situation where everyone thrived, the animals were given the best from all responders and the other organizations that we were there to assist were grateful.

I am so proud of Red Rover and Nicole and her hoard of volunteers. This latest foray into the Texas floods is typical of the "Rovers" who have answered many a similar call to disasters, abusive situations, injured animal rescues and more. The financial assistance they have provided some pet owners who couldn't afford critical care for their loved pet stands alone among charities. Such a heart this charity has! I am "old , lame and halt": a geezer too old to volunteer but happy to contribute to this cause. Thank you once more, Red Rover heroes.

As a regular volunteer at Red Rover's headquarter, I am so impressed with the people who work there. They are so passionate about helping animals! They've got amazing crews of trained volunteers who they dispatch to disaster areas or dire situations to help shelter displaced animals. (They're heading to Texas this week.)
But that's not all they do. Check out their website!!

RedRover, helped me in a time of need, and they were so quick, most grants take forever, and I applied for the grant and within 24 hours, my vet was paid the grant I was awarded! I could not be more thankful for how much they helped me out! The representative was so sweet and understanding and I truly feel that she had her whole heart involved in my situation, which made it more personal and it showed me that she cared! Thank you REDROVER! My furry baby, SKYE, could not say thank you enough!!!

I would like to give my upmost respect for helping out with Bailey, here's Baileys story... we found him abandoned on a back road running down the road towards our car, we couldn't help but stop. He was covered in ticks and fleas. So Bailey got in our car with us and we took him home and gave him a bath. I reached out to find his owners through shelters and social media and no one claimed him. So he became a part of our family. Well he's been such a blessing and good dog and my little sidekick. Well things turned for the worst, vomiting, diarrhea and bloody stools. I had no idea what it was until I found out some other dogs on our road got parvo and I knew that's was it. I never experienced parvo and knew nothing about it. I heard of it but that's all i knew that it was a very serious virus. We took him to the vet and sure enough parvo and a lot of times I always heard death with it. It made me cry a lot. I thought what can I do. So with the great help of red rover and their donors I was granted some money to help with the vet bills that I would've not been able to afford on my own. I'm so happy to know that my Bailey is going to get the help he needs and as of now is doing great. I cannot thank you all enough for your generation and kindness for reaching out. We cannot thank you enough.
Sincerely
Tonya Kelly

Stray cat was walking around with a broken leg. My heart is bigger than my pocket book at this time. I took the stray to the vet and prayed I would find the funds to pay for his vet bill. I found RedRover and applied, within a few minutes they called me, amazing! My answer to prayer was REDROVER! They assisted me quickly , kindly and thoroughly. I am so grateful for this program. Stray is healing nicely inside as I search for a home for him.

A neighborhood feline gave birth to four kittens in my garage. We are sterilizing them but one got a prolapsed bowel before we could nueter him Simon. Simon had already gained a place in our home by developing skills in my brain damaged son, that I had yet to see since his injuries began over ten years ago. But my resources are very limited and I could not get Simon his needed medical care. I exhausted all known sources and thought Simon would have to be put down which was horrible to consider as Simon kept his spirits up and zest for life. Thanks to Red Rover Simon got his chance to live and is doing great . Red Rover is truly a genuine and exceptional charity for doing what they claim and saving pets lives. Thank you so much Red Rover for saving Simon. You went beyond just financial aid and got my vet to finance the balance for me when after two previous times of making full payments to them they had refused to do it again with a huge down payment that I just couldn't produce. Red Rover worked with them and got them to lower the down payment and give me low payments for the balance remaining. Without Red Rover and all the help that they did Simon would not be alive and well. Special thanks to Laurel for all her work to save Simon. Sincerely Michelle Ponsen.

I would like to take a moment and thank RedRover and Laurel for such a quick response. My baby, Lady a Pomeranian (pretty face Pom) is what I call her. She was attacked by a pit-bull and severely injured. I spent over $1,600.00 and more cost were to continue, but I wanted my baby to get what she needed, but my money ran out quick. I search on-line and found RedRover and applied to help and that is what I got. They paid for 2 appointments which helped me out. I feel blessed and can't wait to support this organization in the future. Thank you, thank you, thank you......

Red Rover thank you for your fast and speedy response to my companion and best friend Niko who is blue nose and brindle pitbull acquired boxer ulcers in each eye, I am on a fixed income and ran out of money for surgery that he so needed. I got online and started searching for financial asst Red Rover was the first I applied for with in 5 minutes I got a response, Laurel was very kind, loving and caring and had lots of empathy for Nikos painful eyes, 200$ was immediately donated then followed by another 50$ to help me get a head a lil for meds. Niko had surgery the next day without surgery he would go blind. Red Rover thank you for your fast and speedy reponse to my cry for help with Niko your kindness was so wonderful and so was laurel who understood my situation and responded to me right away. Niko
is on his way to recovery were still on meds and eyes drops. Big thanks to The community pet hospital who did the surgery and for Red Rover without your financial assistance and fast response we would of been in dier distress and Nikos condition would have worsened as well as the extreme pain. Thank you thank you thank you for helping my baby boy have surgery so fast and now is on his way through recovery your the best Red Rover. Love Dona & Niko

We were so impressed/excited/grateful throughout our first experience applying for a Safe Escape grant from RedRover. Our organization had arranged to provide emergency shelter for a survivor fleeing a violent situation but couldn't accommodate the client's puppy in our facility. We worked with a local veterinarian to find out about boarding and what vaccinations were required, and that's when we reached out to RedRover. Their amazing staff were in touch within an hour and the whole process was completed in 2 hours. Both the client and the puppy were able to rest safely for the night before relocating.

I adopted Baby Prada from a high kill animal shelter, she was the only puppy there that no one had shown any interest in, she was malnourished, had a skin condition and looked like she had the weight of the world on her shoulders..I fell in love with her immediately. I had her for 6 weeks when she was hit by a car..I had taken her out on a leash she saw a bird in the street , she jerked the leash from me and ran into the street and was hit. I was crushed..my sweet lab pup I knew was gone..I took her to the vet immediately and got the awful news her leg was basically shattered. .I just broke down , this sweet girl doesn't deserve this..I didn't know how I was gonna help her, I found several organizations on line..I got no help, some said wrong breed, she's not AKC registered. .on and on..but not Red Rover they wanted to help her and me and they did and they didn't keep me guessing about what they would or wouldn't do..they just helped.I don't know how Pradas outcome would've been if it weren't for them, I didn't want to euthanize her that's for sure, but sometimes people have to make awful decisions so that their fur baby doesn't suffer when all they need is a hand up.I will be forever grateful to them for helping my baby girl. Today Prada is 9 days post surgery she had her bandage removed today and is feeling tons better..she is expected to make a full recovery. If I am ever in a position to donate to a non profit organization it will be RedRover because they cared enough about my beloved Prada to help me help her.

Cody was diagnosed with intestinal obstruction, and needed surgery to have the foreign object removed. Being a broke college student, I felt helpless with the large vet bill. Let's be honest, nobody expect your baby to be sick, let alone an emergency surgery. I contacted RedRover and heard back within a few hours. RedRover was able to help with a portion of Cody's vet bill. Their generous grant definitely took a lot of weight off my shoulders and I can't thank RedRover enough for helping with the surgery!
