What is the

Greater Good Charities and RedRover believe that pets are family – and that no one should have to choose between their safety and their pet. Because of this shared mission, we joined forces to help human service organizations and animal shelters create community-based collaborative programs to help both people and pets in crisis. Together, we share our knowledge on fundraising, insights on human services and animal welfare, and construction expertise to help organizations welcome pets of domestic violence survivors and the unhoused populations.

Dr. Bryna Donnelly is the Co-Founder of Greater Good Charities’ Rescue Rebuild program. Before leaving her job as a college professor in 2011, she traveled during school breaks with college students renovating animal shelters with Rescue Rebuild. One of her passions is teaching volunteers how to enrich the lives of animals and their caretakers with time and a little hard work. 

She now focuses her love of animals and teaching on helping people and pets in crisis by diversifying Rescue Rebuild’s mission to include building pet spaces in domestic violence shelters, homeless shelters, and veterans’ housing options. Bryna and her team have renovated over 160 shelters and consulted with countless other shelters to help further their animal welfare goals.
