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 Everyone! Today I received news! I am so excited to tell everyone that My cat Whiskey will have his surgery soon for a Hernia thanks to REDROVER!!! They helped us with financial assistance for Whiskeys Hernia surgery, which we are very very grateful! With this help, we are able to have Whiskey surgery done sooner than later. And make sure he will have a long life!
If you guys ever want to donate to any nonprofit, consider Redrover. The staff members at Redrover are very quick to respond and kind enough to ask how our dear Whiskey was feeling. I am so so happy and excited for his surgery on the 18th this month. Going to be rough keeping him still after recovery, but it is all worth it! THANK YOU REDROVER! Will post his surgery and recovery as soon as the day comes. Thanks Again!!
Whiskey is a sweet lovable Domestic long haired Orange cat, loves any type of person and animals. Due to his kindness he did not fight back, when my two dogs were playing with him by pulling off most of his fur. No bite injuries, just scabs and bald spots. He was fine, just a little frighten from the incident. After attending to his wounds, I found a lump on the side of his body. I took him to the vets and found out that he had a hernia. Because I did not have the funds to take care of his expenses, I had to post pone his surgery to just save enough funds to cover his surgery. Thank you again Redrover!

When I applied for my rescue kitty who could barely eat due to severe stomatitis I never expected to be approved. I thought I might get a polite rejection letter. I got an immediate response asking how the little guy was feeling. Red Rover went back and forth on calls with my vet and myself co-ordinating the surgery costs and negotiating payment. Laurel was very sweet and this little boy will get some relief thanks to Red Rover.

I am a recent victim of emotional domestic abuse. I also just lost my favorite aunt and my mother, so this is a really difficult time of hardship for me.
When my cat got ill, I found that my financial situation required me to reach out for help with her vet bills. I could not afford my medicines or even food these days while trying to get on even footing, financially. My companion cat was pretty much all I had and I did not want her to suffer because of my immediate poverty.
Red Rover helped me to be able to provide my cat the surgery she needed. With the help of my case manager at the local domestic violence shelter, we submitted the application to Red Rover for help. My application was approved within one day, funding was arranged to cover her entire bill at the vet's, and she was in surgery within four days of my application.
The staff at Red Rover was so supportive and kind to me.
I can not say enough about how wonderful this organization has been, and I am especially grateful for the sensitivity to victims of domestic violence who are suffering in so many ways: emotionally, financially and facing uncertainly while trying to care for themselves and all their family....even the fur family members. Thank you Red Rover! I am forever grateful!

This organization goes above and beyond helping. I applied for a grant and within an hour they spoke to Mary's Doctor and approved a grant to help pay for her surgery. A little about Mary, she was left on our doorstep by an unknown person after being tortured by having her legs broke, her eye punctured and deafened in one ear. Redrover was very fast and very helpful in getting Mary's eye removal surgery performed. I could never say Thank You enough to this organization.

Red Rover has been fantastic in helping me with my dog, Mariah. She needed surgery to remove a mass on her spleen, which came at a very bad time financially. Red Rover was so quick to help, and I am forever grateful!

I am so grateful for RedRover. They helped me with the cost of my Tinkerbell's dental surgery cost. Without them she would not of been able to have the much needed surgery. Her mouth was swollen and she was in pain. She is much better now thanks to RedRover. Tinkerbell is the baby up front.
