RedRover brings animals from crisis to care and strengthens the bond between people and animals through the following programs:
RedRover Relief: We provide guidance, case management and financial assistance to help pet owners, Good Samaritans and rescuers obtain urgent veterinary care for animals in life-threatening situations. We also work with domestic violence shelters all over the country to provide emergency assistance with boarding and veterinary care to help domestic violence victims and their pets safely escape abusive environments together and establish on-site emergency housing for pets.
RedRover Responders: Our staff and trained volunteers shelter and care for animals displaced by natural disasters or rescued from puppy mills, hoarding cases, and other cruelty situations. Volunteers provide daily care and comfort for the animals until they can be reunited with their owners, placed in foster care, or adopted into new homes.
RedRover Readers: We train educators how to teach children the three steps of empathy development: recognize emotional states in animals and people, share emotional states and regulate emotions to make positive decisions and develop strong relationships. The unique curriculum uses illustrated stories and question strategies to help children understand animal behavior, develop self-awareness and think deeply about what the characters are experiencing and how they would feel or what they would do in a similar situation.
Thank you for caring about the animals."
