RedRover Responder Training Workshop Offered

RedRover, formerly known as United Animal Nations, is offering a training workshop in Sacramento on February 26, 2012, for people interested in becoming RedRover Volunteer Responders.  Responders, the “backbone” of the RedRover organization, provide lifesaving care and sheltering for animal victims of natural disasters, puppy mills, hoarding, and other cases of cruelty and neglect.  Volunteers come from across the United States and Canada from all walks of life and have one thing in common: a commitment to helping animals in need.clip_image002

The unique training program combines the ease of self-driven independent study with a solid connection to RedRover staff and the community-building workshop.   After completing the training program, volunteers should feel connected and confident to be successful RedRover Responders.  For more information or to register for the workshop, contact RedRover or call (916) 429-2457.

RedRover also offers an online self-paced training course exclusively for teachers through the Humane Society University. “Humane Literacy: Promoting Empathy, Critical Thinking and Language Skills in the Classroom” is a three-week course with five hours of course work teaching teachers how to implement the RedRover Readers curriculum. The curriculum is especially designed to help children develop compassion and empathy for animals and people while building their listening and critical thinking skills. For more information on the RedRover Readers program, or to investigate other RedRover teacher resources, visit the RedRover Readers website. (CPE units are available in some states.)

Founded in 1987, RedRover is an animal protection organization with the main objectives of bringing animals from crisis to care and to strengthen the bond between people and animals through education, financial support and animal care. The non-profit organization is is located in Sacramento but operates nationally.

RedRover is split into four different programs: RedRover Responders, RedRover Readers, RedRover Relief, and RedRover Reporters. The RedRover website allows people to request financial aid, donate to the organization, and receive valuable information about animal care. In addition to the internet, RedRover also provides hands-on resources for educating children about the “human-animal bond”, rescuing and temporarily sheltering animals from neglect or natural disasters, and reporting animal cruelty.
