If you hear of a shelter or organization in need of assistance, please contact RedRover.
The best way to volunteer is to connect with your local shelter or rescue group. You can find groups near you on www.petfinder.com. Occasionally, animals affected by a disaster become in need of long-term foster care, and if they are transported out of the area their foster care is often coordinated through partnerships between animal shelters.
RedRover is only able to deploy trained RedRover Responders volunteers to our emergency sheltering operations. At this time we have enough volunteers on standby.
