UPDATE: Animals from last week thriving under volunteer’s care

Last week, we told you about the 150+ animals rescued from a North Carolina property. The animals were living in unsafe and unsanitary conditions, and needed help. Because people like you support RedRover, we were able to send emergency volunteers to the temporary shelter to begin providing immediate daily care to the rescued animals.

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. After seven years of fundraising, the county was able to reopen the shelter in the town of Kiln. 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.

A trapping triumph

In January 2015, RedRover Responders volunteers braved long hours and winter storms to help more than one hundred cats on St. George Island, off the coast of Florida. The group of volunteers, in partnership with other feral cat groups, trapped 103 cats, and provided them with vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and basic care until they were later released.
