My 4 year old Doxie was attacked a couple nights ago by a large stray. I had to pry the strays mouth off of my girl. I rushed her to the vet for care. X-ray showed my baby has a broken jaw in 2 places. 1 place requires screws to repair and the other requires a wire to repair. Fearful that I would not be able to have the surgery she so desperately needs, I turned to the internet. My prayers were answered when Rachel from Red Rover contacted me with the best news ever. My sweet baby will be able to have her surgery Tuesday morning and on her road to recovery. Words cannot express my gratitude to Red Rover. Without Red Rover I fear that I would have had to make a decision I was not prepared to make. THANK RED ROVER!!!!!
Red Rover is simply one of the best animal welfare organizations around. I have been a volunteer and donor for years. They not only respond to immediate needs of animals in emergency situations, they help women getting out of violent situations do so knowing that their companion animals will be safe. They help people who want to help animals but lack the funds be able to provide veterinary care for these animals. They are responsive and respectful to volunteers and donors. The make excellent use of their funding. Red Rover is the best and I'm proud to be affiliated with this fine organization.
I have rescued Golden Retrievers for over 30 years, and just had my first experience with a GSD. Molly was a pitiful sight, her hind leg so damaged by humans that she could barely walk and had to drag the leg along. Her eyes were dull, her ears drooped and she only wanted to lie in a corner. Most of my resources and contacts are for goldens, so helping Molly was a real challenge. Through the generosity of Red Rover and other groups and individuals, we were able to have Molly's leg amputated, and following a long period of recuperation and fostering, she is now a joyful, playful girl with sparkling eyes, a much loved family member with a chihuahua sibling in Northern California. It is heartwarming to know Red Rover exists to help our best friends. Molly and I will be forever grateful.
I want to learn a new way and style to help teach our young people how to learn about the feelings of others and I thought the Red Rovers reading program would be a great fit for the things that I teach like care and concern for yourself and others
The instructor was wonderful she took time to help me understand a new method of reading to our youth what a wonderful and refreshing new understanding
Thank you Red Rover
I am a Red Rover volunteer that worked the Greensburg, Kansas tornado a few years ago. It was long days, and sometimes dirty work, but I felt so good knowing I was doing a small part to help the people and pets of that city where literally nothing remained. The animals that you could love on while they were waiting to be returned to their owners brought joy to my heart. The best part was when the owner came to permanently pick up his or her pet. Everyone was so happy and of course there were tears as well for many different reasons. Red Rover is 100% tops in my book.
As a volunteer, I love the fact that they are a wonderfully organized group. So many times I have volunteered for animal groups that are not and it is can be very frustrating.
I took the RedRover Readers certification program at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak, MI last weekend, and I have to say that I am extremely impressed with the program. They have an excellent mission and are very well organized to accomplish their goals. If anyone is interested in humane education, or one of the 3 other services they have to offer, please check out RedRover. Karly Noel, the educational manager for the RedReader program, is very personable and knowledgeable. I'm proud to be a part of the RedRover Readers!
I have volunteered for Red Rover over the years as well as contributed $$. I have served as a volunteer for many organizations (& continue to do so) and they (Red Rover) are the best at keeping in touch with volunteers on an ongoing basis! Most organizations I volunteer for TRY to stay in contact but Red Rover is exceptional even when I haven't been an active volunteer. Additionally, they keep volunteers aware of training opportunites to enhance a volunteer's skills.
I have been a volunteer since 2005 and it is by far the most rewarding volunteer work I do (I also volunteer @ the womens prison and with people who have disabilities). Each time I have been deployed - I'm been incredulous at the amount of detail, organization and preparation that is passed on to the volunteer before hand. This is amazing as these are emergency situations - not something that folks get much notice on. The accomandations provided are always good and again, the organization during the deployment is great. Volunteers are appreciated and are able to provide feedback during the deployment in order to make changes or whatever else needs adjusting. What makes the experience so rewarding to me is the number of lives I can impact in a short period of time :). Finally, at the end of a 'deployment' - we are recognized for our work; follow up is completed by UAN. I can't recognize this organization highly enough!
