RedRover brings animals from crisis to care and strengthens the bond between people and animals through the following programs:

- RedRover Responders. Our volunteer team shelters and cares for animals displaced by natural disasters and reconnects them to owners. We also shelter and care for animals rescued from puppy mills, hoarding cases and other significant abuse situations. (Formerly Emergency Animal Rescue Service)

- RedRover Readers. We help children explore the bond between people and animals through stories and discussion. (Formerly Humane Education Ambassador Readers)

- RedRover Relief. We provide guidance, case management and financial assistance to help pet owners, Good Samaritans and rescuers obtain urgent veterinary care. We work with domestic violence shelters to help survivors of domestic violence and their pets safely escape abusive environments, so families can escape together and stay together. (Formerly LifeLine Grant Program)
