About the

We’ll dive deep with you and your collaborative partners to help you create a pet program that is both effective and sustainable. This approach will allow for in-depth conversations providing us with the opportunity to give tailored guidance based on your particular needs and circumstances. Participating organizations will receive a specially designed construction plan based on your needs, size, and available footprint. You’ll also receive one-on-one support in determining your program’s structure as well as sample policies and procedures.

Like the training workshops, consultations will be completed in-person and/or virtually, and will include a follow-up visit/meeting to support your progress. As with all of the Don’t Forget the Pets project, the Coaching program is free.

*Quick note! Participation in the Coaching program does not guarantee grant funding from RedRover or Greater Good Charities. 


Who's eligible?

Domestic violence, homeless, and animal shelters who are in the process of creating an on-site pet housing program are eligible to apply. We encourage organizations to apply once they have identified their collaborative partners but are open to helping before this if needed.

“Working with Rescue Rebuild and RedRover was one of the best experiences we have had doing an expansion of our shelter! The team was unbelievably organized and had a phenomenal ‘can do’ attitude. Any challenges that came our way were quickly resolved and smoothed out. If only every construction project could go so well!”
