Volunteer spotlight: Andy Bass looks back on 21 years as a RedRover Responders volunteer

Andy Bass took the RedRover Responders volunteer training 21 years ago. His first deployment with RedRover (then UAN) was 8 years later for Hurricane Charley in Bartow, FL. Here, he shares an article he wrote about his experience in 2004, followed by his reflections today.

Hands-on collaboration for families escaping violence

By RedRover Relief Program Coordinator II, Laurel Meleski

In November, my colleague Rachel and I had the privilege of working alongside our amazing RedRover Responders volunteers on a special collaboration to help domestic violence victims and their pets in Longview, Washington.

Working together with Rescue Rebuild, our task was to transform three rooms at Emergency Support Shelter (ESS) into pet-friendly, co-sheltering spaces.

A happy tale for RedRover Responders

By Donna L. Lagomarsino, RedRover Responders volunteer team leader

On a hot July morning, RedRover Responders volunteers once again descended upon the location of a temporary emergency shelter in Jefferson County, Arkansas. I say "again" because this is a location we have visited before. It is a location that breathes medical attention, improved health, quality care and a loving future for animals in crisis.
