The award-winning nonprofit announces ambitious plans for 2012 to honor its anniversary
SACRAMENTO, CA (February 23, 2012) – RedRover, a national nonprofit animal protection organization, is honoring 25 successful years of helping animals across the United States and Canada with even more ambitious goals for 2012. Formerly known as United Animal Nations, RedRover’s variety of programs, including emergency animal sheltering and disaster relief services, financial assistance for urgent veterinary care and humane education, offers a unique and highly successful approach to ensuring animal welfare.
Recently named a 2012 Top-Rated Animal Welfare Nonprofit by GreatNonprofits, the organization’s accomplishments for 2011 alone include:
- Assisting pet owners, animal rescuers and Good Samaritans with the costs of emergency veterinary care for more than 400 animals
- Providing temporary shelter, comfort and affection for more than 4,300 animals displaced by natural disasters or rescued from abusive and neglectful situations
- Empowering 2,684 children with a message of compassion toward animals in schools, shelters, libraries, and a variety of community forums
To commemorate more than two decades of bringing animals from crisis to care, the organization has pledged to offer 25 RedRover Readers workshops and 25 RedRover Responders workshops throughout 2012. The nonprofit will also expand its RedRover Relief program by providing more grants to victims of domestic violence so they can safely escape abusive homes with their pets. These lofty goals will expand RedRover’s capacity to help even more animals in need.
Animal lovers are invited to join RedRover in celebrating this major milestone through photo contests, games and other fun activities throughout 2012. Learn more about how to get involved and support RedRover’s crucial work at www.redrover.org/25.
