Reviews for RedRover

Rating: 5 stars  

My baby, willow, suddenly needed surgery. I didn't know what to do, I was distraught. I was denied for pet credit, I've never had a credit card before. I didn't know what to do. Some people said that maybe I should just put her down if I couldn't afford it! I was heart broken. I didn't even know that places like red rover existed. They came to our rescue and with their generous donation my baby is now happy and healing after her surgery! Thank you so much

Redrover relief is an amazing non-profit organization! When we first heard how much our 8 week old kittens surgery on her broken femur was going to be, we were heartbroken. There was going to be absolutely no way we could afford it. The very suggested looking into done grants online to offset the cost. I searched through different charities for almost an hour. Every other one seemed to be for emergency (life-threatening) very expenses or for chronic illness vet expenses. Then, by the grace of God I came across red rover relief! They help with a pet's urgent care expenses. So I filled out the application that night, and I got a call the next morning saying patches had been approved! I almost cried on the phone and the lady I spoke with was so nice. It is truly amazing what these people are doing to help people like me and I'm so thankful to them and to the people who donate to this organization out of the pure kindness of their hearts.

I needed to go to a domestic violence shelter to get out of an abusive relationship. I hesitated to leave because of my rescue cat, Tiger. I could not imagine leaving her behind. A friend told me about Red Rover and my case manager at the shelter called and Red Rover responded immediately. I was able to place my cat at a boarding facility with Red Rover covering the cost. Red Rover was willing to cover the cost for the entire time I was in the shelter. I was ecstatic and beyond words of gratitude for their help.

RedRover was there for us in a very difficult time in our lives. I am a disabled veteran trying to finish the vocational rehabilitation program. I have recently had to take time off to have surgery. My income is on hold until I return to school in august. This problem was causing us additional stress and this organization came through for us so it makes it possible to concentrate on other problems. God bless the people and donors at RedRover.

I want to thank Red Rover for their help with my cat, Nikki. Their response was immediate and their understanding and professionalism is unsurpassed.

Here's Nikki's story. Nikki loved going outside at night. She stayed out for two days and when she returned she had a large cut on her upper inner thigh. I brought her to the vet and initially they thought that the wound would need to be stitched and that there would be follow-up care that could be quite costly. The vet also thought that she might have to be humanely euthanized because of the location of where the wound was. She felt that the wound would never heal properly. Anyway, it turns out that the wound is healing beautifully and she will not even need stitches. The vet said it was like a "miracle."

Anyway, the follow-up visits and antibiotics were all covered by Red Rover. They are truly a God send and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a little help paying to get their animal well. I want to thank Laurel from Red Rover personally for all of her help, understanding, compassion and professionalism.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not make any changes. It has been a wonderful experience.

Hi let me tell you a little story. I found Trooper on the side of the road covered with black scabs and red itchy skin. He was very weak with hunger and so fearful of me I thought he was going to literally shake himself to death. After a Vet visit we find out that he was Heart Worms along with a few other things like mange:( So after months of treating his mange we were finally given the okay to start Heartworm Treatment. So off I went to explore any and all avenues available for assistance with his Treatment. I was getting so many different quotes for Treatment, from $800 up to $2000. Needless to say my husband and I both being on disability could in no way come up with this money alone. So we set up a GoFundMe page and handed out flyers and basically got the word out that this little guy needed help. I was becoming so discouraged and very sad that I was going to have to make a decision to have Trooper euthanized for lack of funding. Then we were blessed with finding a great Veterinarian who would do the Treatment for half the lowest quote. We still needed to come up with this money or at least half before we could start treatment. Then we received our second blessing when we found RedRover. I know they were God sent:) Oh my gosh the kindness and compassion in the ladies voice rejuvenated my spirit. After a few phones calls and a few emails and speaking with our Vet. we were given a grant of half the treatment cost. THANK YOU REDROVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Trooper and I will forever be in your debt. God Bless you and the wonderful work you do. Thank you for helping so many animals, that without your assistance may have to be euthanized.

I wanted to thank the Red Rover Organization for their assistance with my parents dog, "Sugar Baby". She had a large tumor on her chest and it was continually getting larger. My parents are living on social security and could not afford to get this operation for Sugar Baby. When I contacted Red Rover they were so friendly and helpful, they were truly angels in a time of need. We are so very grateful that this organization was out there for family’s like us, so we could take care of our fury companion "Sugar Baby". Thanks again for your help!

Red Rover helped us in need with Brutus when he suffered a heat stroke. I didn't think grants were even possible. When we were told how much his bills would be for hospitalization we started exploring every option. Any bit of help in a life or death situation can make every bit of diffrence. With the help of Red Rover we were able to give our pup a fighting chance. He has been in Intensive care for a few days. Two blood transfusions later and tons of IV fluids we are starting to make progress. They took his cathadar out today! His kidneys will hopefully be back to normal in a few days. We are so great full for the compassion and help. I know Brutus will fight through this.

My client and I had an amazing experience with Red Rover. Red Rover was able to provide the financial help that my client needed. My client was at a point where she could no longer pay for her dog’s housing because she was going through personal challenges herself and Red Rover was able to pay the overdue fees the following day. This organization is amazing in that they respond to you quickly, it’s not a long process and they are courteous, patient and dedicated to helping their clients.
