Welcome To

American Red Lion Disaster & Abuse Fund

"Massive disasters like Hurricanes Florence, Michael, and the California Camp Fire create more needs than any one organization can meet on its own.” Janelle Babington



The mission of the American Red Lion Disaster Fund is to identify the credible, sustainable, boots-on-the-ground local animal welfare organizations that can immediately provide for the urgent rescue and care of abandoned animals by providing them with the funds and supplies needed to assist.

The Problem

There are over 25,000 Animal Welfare Organizations, 10,000 Animal Hospitals, and 1.3 million livestock farms in the United States and people keep donating to the same charities over and again because they do not know whom to donate to. Local animal shelters, hospitals, small farms, and other organizations that are boots on the ground rescuing animals during disasters are not getting the funds and supplies needed to assist to save the unusually high number of animals needing to be saved during disasters.


American Red Lion and National Animal News 

have teamed up to help provide food and care for the

10 plus million victims of animal abandonment or abuse.
