It’s hard to believe that we’re already one quarter into 2024! But bear with us for a moment, as we’d like to recap what was a record-breaking year in 2023, and share some exciting updates about 2024.

Last Year

  • More than 500 individuals joined us for a Don’t Forget the Pets training workshop or guest presentation.
  • We provided 1-on-1 coaching support to 37 organizations from a variety of sectors including animal welfare, domestic violence support, and homeless services.
  • Through our quarterly newsletter, we reached more than 2,269 subscribers, providing important information on things like new funding opportunities, upcoming workshops, and “deep dives” on how to create pet housing programs. 
  • Combined, RedRover and Greater Good Charities provided roughly $1.9 million in grant funding to support the creation and expansion of pet housing programs throughout the U.S.!

Moving Forward

  • Just this January, we launched our newly redesigned website! Don’t worry, you’ll still find all of your old favorites like our training handbook and document library, but don’t miss our new video library! You’ll find recordings from past presentations and mini “deep dives”, where we’ll take you through a more in-depth discussion on topics like animal enrichment, managing allergies, and the importance of privacy fencing. 
  • We’ve got an exciting lineup of in-person workshops across the country and even MORE special presentations coming your way. Next up is “Making Room for Pets: Homeless Services & Co-Sheltering” with our pawesome friend, Jesse Casement, from Father Joe’s Village in San Diego, CA on April 18th!
  • And we continue to support the 25 by 2025 campaign to help ensure that 25% of DV shelters in the U.S. are pet-friendly by the end of 2025. Be sure to check out the website and download the toolkit and badge to show your support! BIG news: we’re currently at 19% (up from 17% in January 2023)!

We appreciate your continued support and hope you’ll join us for an upcoming workshop or presentation! Have a question about creating or expanding your pet housing program? Don’t hesitate to reach out – we’re here to help!
