Building for a brighter future

RedRover Responders volunteers are known for sheltering animals in disasters and sometimes, that means lending a hand to small communities in need.   Ten years ago, the Hancock County Animal Shelter in Mississippi was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.

Since then, the tiny shelter has worked heroically to provide shelter for stray and abandoned animals.  However, it had limited kennel space to help all the dogs and pups who needed their help.
