A RedRover Responders volunteer provides loving care to an evacuated animal.

Where would you take your pets if a disaster forced your evacuation? Who can help a community take care of animals when they’re rescued from puppy mills or hoarding cases? If you care about animals in these situations and want to make a difference, you are invited to join the RedRover Responders volunteer team.

Volunteer RedRover Responders provide lifesaving care and sheltering for animal victims of natural disasters, cruelty and neglect. RedRover’s 4,000 trained volunteers come from across the United States and Canada and from all walks of life, but have one thing in common: a commitment to helping animals in need.

While deployed to a temporary emergency animal shelter, RedRover Responders volunteers:
- Set up and dismantle an emergency shelter for animals displaced by disaster or rescued from cruelty
- Walk, groom and socialize the animals
- Feed animals and clean cages
- Organize supply donations
- Reunite animals with caregivers
- Assist with evidence gathering in cruelty cases
- Assist with veterinary care

Volunteers emerge from the training program feeling connected with the resources they need to be successful during RedRover deployments and in helping improve disaster preparedness for animals in their communities.

Mission Statement

RedRover, formerly known as United Animal Nations, was founded in 1987. We work to strengthen the bond between people and animals with a commitment to help, shelter and connect suffering animals with people who care.

Description

RedRover staff and volunteers provide soft hands and warm hearts when animals and people are in need, crisis and pain. We bring animals out of crisis and into care, and discover new ways to strengthen the common bond between people and animals through three main programs.

  • RedRover Responders
    Our trained volunteers shelter animals displaced by natural disasters and reconnect them to owners. We care for animals rescued from hoarding cases, puppy mills and other significant abuse and neglect situations.
  • RedRover Readers
    Through stories and discussion, we help children explore the bond between people and animals and develop the empathy necessary to become compassionate, responsible citizens. Trained volunteers and teachers encourage children to reflect on the roles of animals in their communities and determine our collective responsibilities toward them.
  • RedRover Relief
    Our case managers provide funding, resources and emotional support to pet owners and Good Samaritans so they can care for animals who need urgent veterinary care.
