Target demographics:

animals in crisis

nearly 2,000 animals in crisis. In 2013, we deployed RedRover Responders volunteers to help more than 1,300 animals, including those affected by the tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma. In 2013, we also helped save the lives of more than 650 animals by awarding financial grants to help Good Samaritans, pet owners, animal rescuers and victims of domestic violence care for animals in life-threatening situations

Geographic areas served:

U.S. and Canada

Programs:

Through RedRover Responders, we shelter and care for animals displaced by natural disasters and other crises, such as criminal seizures and hoarding cases. The RedRover Relief program provides funding to Good Samaritans, animal rescuers, pet owners and victims of domestic violence to help them care for animals in life-threatening situations. The RedRover Readers program helps children explore the bond between people and animals through stories and discussion. Volunteers visit elementary school classrooms, after-school programs, animal shelters and other venues to read to children and lead discussions -- helping children develop critical thinking skills and empathy.

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.

I really appreciate the help I got from the RedRover Relief fund. I agreed to take in a dog, who belonged to an elderly couple, both of whom had failing health and wanted to rehome their sweet pitbull mix, Josey Wales. I got him completely vetted but he turned out to be heartworm positive. I requested and received a big portion of the funds needed to get Josey Wales promptly treated. Without the help from RedRover, I doubt I would have had the funds needed to get Josey Wales treated. Hip Hip Hooray for their efforts at RedRover!

They were quick and easy, and came through just in time to save my pet's life, who needed an emergency procedure I couldn't afford.

RedRover gave me hope that there are still good people out there in the world. They helped me with more than 50% of my ferret's surgery. He (Grizzly) is scheduled to have his life saving surgery next week and it's all thanks to these GREAT PEOPLE who care for GREAT PETS! I plan on donating back once I get my feet back on the ground to help replenish the fund. Me and Grizzly are forever grateful and we will never forget what RedRover did for us! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OUR OUR HEARTS! =) We LOVE you guys!

This organization was so kind and they have a streamlined application process. We are experiencing extreme financial hardship right now and Red Rover came to the rescue for a dog we recently adopted. Their online application process was easy to complete, I was contacted promptly by their staff and worked seamlessly with our veterinarian. "Jessica" was our point of contact. She is so sweet and efficient. Once we are back on our feet, I look forward to donating to Red Rover because they really do care about the animals AND their owners.

Red Rover: Thank you for the help that you have been able to provide us as well as for all the work you do benefiting animals and their owners. I'm not one to ask for assistance but at this point in our lives, our dog really needed help and our hands were tied. I am so grateful for the assistance.

I had the extreme pleasure to be able to work with RedRover in getting a client's animal to safety after she had fled domestic violence and relocated to a safe haven and was therefore unable to bring her animal with her.

Laurel was extremely helpful in explaining the organization's processes in applying for funding for the animal to be boarded, and worked with us for weeks, sticking by our side through the different barriers that arose and made finding safe placement for the animal all the more difficult. Not having any prior experience assisting a client with finding safe shelter for her animal, I am so thankful to Laurel and the entire organization for the work they do every day to advocate for animals. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with RedRover and I look forward to working with them again in the future. They were extremely professional, kind, and understanding individuals deeply committed to animal safety. I cannot thank them enough for their services.

I contacted RedRover about medical issues for my little man ( a dog, an Italian Greyhound), and they were very kind to help us out. The girl who contacted me was amazing. She not only called me, but she emailed and kept up with me, and contacted the vet for me as well. This organization helps when you just need someone to help you a little. They are very compassionate and caring and not judgemental at all. We thank you for everything!

Our kitty PJ became very sick and we found out he had urinal blockage as well as bowel blockages. It was going to cost us quite a lot of money we did not have. We reached out to several places, but were unable to get assistance. I googled one last time for help in our area and was able to get info on RedRover. Laurel from RedRover reached out to me and was able to help. Her attentiveness to our needs was above and beyond what we hoped for! Laurel and RedRover were able to help us with a grant so that we could get PJ the procedure he needed. Laurel and RedRover are such a blessing to our family.
Thank You RedRover!!

My Trudy needed her eye removed due to an injury. Having only adopted her 6 months previous and already having lost one eye to glaucoma, I was devastated to learn that she would indeed, be left in the dark. Still paying for the 1st surgery, I was not able to pay for yet another eye enucleation. Red Rover stepped in and quickly approved us for a generous grant so she could get out of pain (and out of that CONE!). She is getting her stitches out tomorrow and we are both very excited to get back to our lives together. Red Rover was prompt, professional and most of all, kind.
