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.

I will forever be a fan & advocate for Redrover. I submitted a request for assistance after a visit with the vet on a Saturday, they called me on the following Monday and pledged assistance on Tuesday. Redrover has been a God send for Eddie & me. I don't know what I would have done without their prompt support. Rachel was caring and empathic to our situation. Thank you Redrover we are eternally grateful.

The RedRover Relief Program assisted one of the residents of our Urban Resource Institute with sheltering her pet safely after a surgical procedure and until a pet-friendly apartment became available at one of our domestic violence shelters. The pet needed to heal away from a life-threatening environment and thanks to RedRover, the pet was boarded at a local veterinary clinic. The pet was also able to receive the proper food needed and to be monitored by caring veterinary staff for over a month.
The family was filled with joy to be reunited with their beloved pet and move into a PALS (People and Animals Living Safely) apartment. The joy was also in knowing their pet had been healing peacefully because of RedRover.
With Laurel’s assistance, everything needed was provided through the generosity of a RedRover Relief (Safe Escape) grant, which assists families impacted by domestic violence.
The RedRover programs and grants keep pets safe when crisis situations arise. The Urban Resource Institute and the family, including the pet, are grateful for RedRover!!

They were very professional and very helpful with helping us find the funding to get the medical care we needed for Rosie. Laurel was very friendly and caring with any communication we had with her either vocal or in her emails to us.

I would recommend this organization to anyone who may need their help

They did what they said they would. Released a check to my vet on the same day I notified them that I had her surgery scheduled. They helped me when I really needed it.
Thank you RR!

I took the online training course for their RedRover Readers program and learned a lot about how to teach young learners to develop empathy for animals. I am really looking forward to putting this training to use.

When I found out that my lab Dabny had a mass cell tumor on her front leg and needed amputation I turned to Red Rover for help. Without them and their generous donors I would've had to say goodbye to my best friend and shadow. They saved my baby girl's life and for this Dabny and I are so very greatful and truly blessed.

My dog Storm needs surgery to have two rumors removed. I am a single mother of two, and simply don't have enough for the surgery. I came across Red Rover and because of their generous donation I can afford to get Strom the surgery she needs! She is scheduled for next week. I can't say enough how thankful I am for Red Rover! Thank you for being there for myself and Storm in assisting us!

This is an amazing organization I had almost given up hope for ever finding help with getting my pet the emergency treatment he needed. They were very fast in getting back to me and were extremely compassionate with my concerns. I spoke with Laurel several times and she was extremely helpful and understanding I would definitely recommend them to anyone in emergency situation such as mine. Thank you so much for all your help in saving my beloved kitty Rusty will send photos soon you're the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brenda Armour and Rusty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
