Reviews for RedRover

Rating: 5 stars  

Red Rover is an excellent foundation. I had a cat with his throat ripped open and in desperate need of surgery. The vet suggested Red Rover as one of the places I ask for help. So I emailed them not expecting to hear anything back. I did not even have to wait they responded immediately. I received a call from Rachel and she was so kind and helpful. They immediately got in touch with the vet and handle things. Monkey the cat is happy and feeling much better. Please consider Red Rover as a place for donations. They are kind and caring and very helpful. I am so thankful for them.

My name is Debbie and want to thank laurel and Redrover for the love and caring they showed to help my cat Morrison have his surgery. I no longer have to worry about him being in pain. From the bottom of our hearts we can't thank you enough

Our dog Maggie was diagnosed with something called pancreatitis (we had never heard of this before) and what was normally a happy, healthy dog all of a sudden became very sick. We used up all the funds we had as well as wiped out grants from other organizations to help keep Maggie hospitalized and given the best care; I reached out in desperation to RedRover and at first Jessica very kindly gave me the usual procedure. However, when I explained to her what Maggie was to us and the urgency she was so wonderful and compassionate; she expedited our application to make sure that Maggie still received the treatments she needed and went above and beyond what we even expected. I am forever grateful to Red Rover and so is my family. Thank you Jessica and thank you Red Rover for helping to save my dog's life!

Hi Everyone! Today I received news! I am so excited to tell everyone that My cat Whiskey will have his surgery soon for a Hernia thanks to REDROVER!!! They helped us with financial assistance for Whiskeys Hernia surgery, which we are very very grateful! With this help, we are able to have Whiskey surgery done sooner than later. And make sure he will have a long life!
If you guys ever want to donate to any nonprofit, consider Redrover. The staff members at Redrover are very quick to respond and kind enough to ask how our dear Whiskey was feeling. I am so so happy and excited for his surgery on the 18th this month. Going to be rough keeping him still after recovery, but it is all worth it! THANK YOU REDROVER! Will post his surgery and recovery as soon as the day comes. Thanks Again!!
Whiskey is a sweet lovable Domestic long haired Orange cat, loves any type of person and animals. Due to his kindness he did not fight back, when my two dogs were playing with him by pulling off most of his fur. No bite injuries, just scabs and bald spots. He was fine, just a little frighten from the incident. After attending to his wounds, I found a lump on the side of his body. I took him to the vets and found out that he had a hernia. Because I did not have the funds to take care of his expenses, I had to post pone his surgery to just save enough funds to cover his surgery. Thank you again Redrover!

When I applied for my rescue kitty who could barely eat due to severe stomatitis I never expected to be approved. I thought I might get a polite rejection letter. I got an immediate response asking how the little guy was feeling. Red Rover went back and forth on calls with my vet and myself co-ordinating the surgery costs and negotiating payment. Laurel was very sweet and this little boy will get some relief thanks to Red Rover.

I am a recent victim of emotional domestic abuse. I also just lost my favorite aunt and my mother, so this is a really difficult time of hardship for me.
When my cat got ill, I found that my financial situation required me to reach out for help with her vet bills. I could not afford my medicines or even food these days while trying to get on even footing, financially. My companion cat was pretty much all I had and I did not want her to suffer because of my immediate poverty.
Red Rover helped me to be able to provide my cat the surgery she needed. With the help of my case manager at the local domestic violence shelter, we submitted the application to Red Rover for help. My application was approved within one day, funding was arranged to cover her entire bill at the vet's, and she was in surgery within four days of my application.
The staff at Red Rover was so supportive and kind to me.
I can not say enough about how wonderful this organization has been, and I am especially grateful for the sensitivity to victims of domestic violence who are suffering in so many ways: emotionally, financially and facing uncertainly while trying to care for themselves and all their family....even the fur family members. Thank you Red Rover! I am forever grateful!

This organization goes above and beyond helping. I applied for a grant and within an hour they spoke to Mary's Doctor and approved a grant to help pay for her surgery. A little about Mary, she was left on our doorstep by an unknown person after being tortured by having her legs broke, her eye punctured and deafened in one ear. Redrover was very fast and very helpful in getting Mary's eye removal surgery performed. I could never say Thank You enough to this organization.
