RedRover Responders stands at the ready to provide animal emergency sheltering assistance for animals displaced by the Arkansas and south-central United States tornadoes. Here is a list of currently available animal emergency shelters and resources.
Beginning Monday morning, as the deadly tornadoes struck the regions of the South and Midwest including Arkansas, Oklahoma and Iowa, RedRover Emergency Services Manager Beth Gammie has been reaching out to offer RedRover Responders' support to our partners and animal shelters in the area.
RedRover Responders volunteers deployed to Arkansas, to assist The Humane Society of the United States in caring for over 180 animals found living in neglectful conditions on a Jefferson County property.
With over 3,000 trained and active RedRover Responders volunteers, it takes a special kind of person to stand out as a leader. Donna Lagomarsino is one of those leaders; she uses her special skills as an educator and workshop facilitator to train future volunteers. Learn what she had to say when we interviewed her about her experience volunteering with RedRover.
RedRover is able to bring animals out of crisis and into care through our network of RedRover Responders volunteers available on a moment’s notice to deploy. One of those volunteers is Paula Redinger who first deployed with us in 2003 to help the animal victims of the Southern California fires.
These were the words of Emergency Services Manager, Beth Gammie, the night before over 180 animals were seized from a suspected puppy mill in Jefferson County, Arkansas. Last week, RedRover assisted the Humane Society of the United States and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office along with various other volunteer groups in the rescue and care of the 121 dogs, 11 exotic birds, 19 chickens, 20 horses and multiple cats, rabbits and turtles that were removed from the Jefferson County property.

Last week, RedRover Responders volunteers answered a call for help to care for 190 cats, 11 dogs and various livestock at a shelter in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. Our team was invited by American Humane Association to provide the loving animal care we’re known for – plus some much-needed elbow grease to clean, disinfect and repair the shelter so it could continue to be a resource for the community’s animals.
