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.

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!

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.

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.

An excellent caring staff that goes above and beyond by also providing empathy training along with its animal care resources. I got some precious extra time with my beloved 13-year-old chinchilla, Rainer, an age goal he would not have met without RedRover's caring and helpful staff. I wish them all the best and hope I may contribute back to such a wonderful organization someday.

From the ease of sending the first note, to the quick reply of the return email, to everything being clearly explained, in my fear of losing my little 12-year-old home-born pet chinchilla due to being deeply immersed in my own medical expenses, RedRover absolutely came to the rescue. Without that assistance there would be an empty cage in my home. Rainer needed dental care, and he got it through the good graces of RedRover. And learning more about the organization, wow, what great work they do! Empathy is a nice thing!

They were quick and easy, and came through just in time to save my pet's life, who needed an emergency procedure I couldn't afford.

RedRover gave me hope that there are still good people out there in the world. They helped me with more than 50% of my ferret's surgery. He (Grizzly) is scheduled to have his life saving surgery next week and it's all thanks to these GREAT PEOPLE who care for GREAT PETS! I plan on donating back once I get my feet back on the ground to help replenish the fund. Me and Grizzly are forever grateful and we will never forget what RedRover did for us! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OUR OUR HEARTS! =) We LOVE you guys!

I became familiar with Redrover with THE STANDS APP ON CHROME. I emailed them and was emailing back and fourth with a nice gentleman there, he asked me for suggestions to add to the app which I gave him many, I support THE HUMANE SOCIETY through just surfing, signing petitions email, browsing on my lap top, it's safe, FREE and awesome way to give back Thanks Redrover!!!
