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.

When illness hits our four legged kids, it can be horrible. This happened recently to my sweetheart Pomeranian Charlie. I literally could not sleep, eat or function because he was diagnosed with pancreatitis. The money to have him cared for by the vet was so immense. I didn't know where to turn. I came across RedRover and what a blessing this organization has been! I thought, this is a shot in the dark. I filled out the forms online and the next day I received a phone call from them. Laurel was the angel who I spoke with on the phone. She was kind, empathetic and sincerely wanted to help. She(RedRover) worked with my vet and I was given some financial aid in this crisis. Because of this wonderful organization, my little guy got the help he needed. God used Laurel to discern when and how to help us and it is something I will never forget. Thank you RedRover for being a light in a dark time. This is an organization that I will tell many to support because it gives hope to those of us that need it!

Shamrock, our 11 year old Spring Spaniel and just the sweetest baby, was originally rescued from Hurricane Katrina with her sister, Clover. After waiting 18 months to see if their family would be found , I was finally able to adopt them. I took extra care with their health as Shamrock always had something: stomach issues, cherry eye, small benign tumors. But even being diligent and getting regular health check-ups didn't prevent Clover from dying in 2015 from liver cancer. So I now have Shamrock tested every few months, but even all that couldn't have prepared me for her bleeding from the mouth. An emergency vet visit resulted in her needing surgery to remove a lump the size of a tootsie roll pop from the back of her tongue. Problem was she was diagnosed on Saturday and operated on first thing Monday morning, so most places that might have helped said no because the surgery had already happened. But not Rachel at RedRover! She understood my predicament and immediately came to my aid for Shamrock. As we await the biopsy reports I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to RedRover that Shamrock's care is not totally dictated by finances, which mine are so limited now due to Social Security which barely covers regular expenses. After the surgery Shamrock needed to be kept 2 nights to watch for excessive bleeding. Thanks to RedRover we didn't think about leaving her and the added expenses! Red Rover may have may for shamrock , a real lifesaver!

Our furbaby April Joy was on the brink of death and in desperate need of surgury to remove a foreign object removed from her stomach. We are so thankful to RedRover for granting us with a part of the money we desperately needed in order to save her life. My girl is up running around playing and talking again. Yes April talks when spoken to. its hillarious. i wouldnt trade her for the world. Thank you RedRover.

We noticed that our 12 year old cat began urinating all over the house and making weird noises. He's a male; he's not pregnant! What the heck is going on? Did some research and he seemed to have the symptoms described of a UTI. Bought him some o-t-c holistic meds with the hopes of seeing improvements. He's a laid-back, social little guy! But, hiding under the bed and seeing him lay at his water bowl convinced us to take him to Overland Pet Vet then immediately to Access LA. Our cuddly companion was suffering from an enlarged bladder due to stones not being able to release. While Access has great staff and service, the bill can get quite expensive, especially considering this was an "out-of-the-blue" situation. Our baby is very agile and has always displayed health, surprising the vet every time we took him for check-ups. He's an older cat and has so much life. Well, we found out that he needed a PU Surgery or we'd need to euthanize him if you can't pay the fee. We'd already paid $3500 to Access and they wanted another $5000! WHAT?! (Wow...money is more valuable than a life - no matter it is an animal). Really baffled me how people's thought processes are. We took a few deep breaths and silent moments to align ourselves and the answer came! Let's search for people who donate for situations like this. RedRover was amongst one of the many reach-outs. Through another giver, we found Huntington Pet Vet, took our little guy there for the PU Surgery at a much inexpensive price with good care. And, WAH-LAH! Our donations flooded in - RedRover being one of those donations. Thank you, RedRover for your giving hearts. Our guy is back to health with his vital energy being expressed!

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.

Thank you Red Rover for helping with finances for my Charli Angel and her dental surgery! She is so much happier and now eats everything now that her gums and teeth do not hurt! She's even gained some weight! I've included some pics! The first pic is when she returned home from surgery. She was in pain and still groggy from the medicine. But now she's happy and healthy! And enjoys doing yoga with her mama! Thank you! Red Rover!

Hello, This is Shilo's story. A precious four months old Chihuahua. She was in need for emergency surgeries; fortunately RedReover was able to help to insure she got the care she was required to have in order to stay alive. I requested for financial aid from them and they were polite and understanding. Great Relief Foundation. Response time was quick. Application is simple. Special Thanks to RedRover Relief Urgent Care Foundation.
