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.
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 crissi and into care, and discover new ways to strengthen the common bond between people and animals through four 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.
RedRover Reporters We prevent abuse and neglect through education and encourage people to watch for and report situations of abuse and neglect, such as dogs left in hot cars. We offer financial incentives to encourage witnesses of animal cruelty to come forward.
