RedRover Responders

RedRover Responders work in cooperation with law enforcement, local agencies and animal organizations to shelter and care for animals displaced by natural disasters or rescued in law enforcement seizures. We are an emergency safety net for animals, offering shelter and care when and where they need it most.

RedRover Relief

RedRover Relief is committed to preserving the human-animal bond by providing financial assistance, resources and support to low-income individuals and survivors of domestic violence and their pets, so families can escape together and stay together. Learn more about our three grant programs at

RedRover Readers

The innovative RedRover Readers curriculum enables educators to teach empathy while at the same time helping students make responsible decisions and become more aware of themselves and their communities.

Volunteering + Events

Become a RedRover Responders volunteer

RedRover Responders are volunteers committed to providing care for animals in crisis. As they do, they strengthen their connections to people and pets in their communities and beyond.

Want to make a difference? By joining our team, you’ll be trained to provide daily care for animals rescued from natural and man-made disasters. RedRover Responders count time spent in our temporary, emergency shelters as some of the most satisfying volunteer work they do.

Our diverse group of 4,000 active volunteers comes from all walks of life. The one thing they have in common is their desire to make a difference for animals in need.
