RedRover Responders Volunteer Training Workshop: Starkville, MS @ Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine
Nov 9 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

The RedRover Responders volunteer corps are the backbone of our 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.

Our 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.

The workshop registration fee of $45 includes a volunteer handbook, the volunteer t-shirt and certificate of completion that are mailed to you after attending the in-person volunteer workshop.
