RedRover, a national nonprofit animal welfare organization, is offering a training workshop in Santa Cruz, California, for people who want to shelter and care for animals rescued from large cruelty situations or displaced by natural disasters.
The workshop trains RedRover Responders volunteers, who provide temporary sheltering for animals displaced by floods, fires, and other natural disasters or rescued from cruelty situations such as puppy mills and hoarding cases in the United States and Canada. RedRover Responders volunteers walk, feed and comfort animals until they can be reunited with their families, placed in foster care or adopted into new homes. After completing the training program, volunteers are eligible to deploy to situations throughout the United States and Canada.
COST: $50 per person in advance. The training program fee includes a volunteer t-shirt, official photo ID badge, certificate of completion and volunteer handbook.
TO REGISTER: Advance registration is required. Attendees must be at least 18 years old. Find more information and register online at www.redrover.org/responders.
