What We Do

RedRover staff and volunteers provide temporary emergency sheltering, resources, financial assistance and emotional support when animals and people are in crisis. We empower educators to help kids develop empathy and awareness of animals’ well-being and increase awareness about the importance of the human-animal bond.

  • The highlight of my deployment was holding the animals who were so desperate to have human contact. I could feel them melt into my chest.
