About this Webinar
The kick-off webinar will be held February 20, noon EST, and the campaign will launch on March 20 in time for kitten season. The field-facing component of the campaign will give organizations what they need for a thriving foster program, while the public-facing component will drive more kitten foster volunteers to local shelters and rescues.

RedRover Responders workshop – Irving, TX @ Irving Animal Care Campus
Apr 20 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

The RedRover Responders volunteer corps are the backbone of efforts to provide lifesaving care and sheltering for animal victims of natural disasters, puppy mills, hoarding, and other cases of cruelty and neglect. We welcome volunteers at all levels of experience, from a casual pet-lover to an experienced rescuer or animal care professional.

The training program consists of attending a four hour in-person workshop and completing IS-100c, an online FEMA class.

Facilitated by an experienced RedRover Responders volunteer, the workshop helps you understand what it’s like to deploy with RedRover to a disaster or animal cruelty case. Group work and exercises will guide pre-deployment decision-making and packing, solidify understanding of key Standard Operating Guidelines, and prepare you for the realities of response.
