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

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.

Redrover offered financial and emotional support for our cat, Mia who suffers from stomatitis. Mia had a second surgery in June to have additional teeth removed. Redrover pledged and came through for our Mia much faster than I expected. We are truly grateful for their help and compassion. Mia is doing well and is even able to eat dry food some days. Thank you again.

Redrover came through for my dog Pesci, approving a grant for a much needed surgery, which I myself could not afford alone. It is organizations such as Redrover that are the angels looking out for those truly in need.
Pesci is more to me than an animal, he is my companion, my support, and my family.
Presently I am fighting breast cancer, I suffer from PTSD, and I am on SSDI. So what Redrover has done for Pesci and I can only be paid back with words of appreciation and gratitude. I am truly blessed for these angels that helped me at a critical time in my life.
Just knowing Pesci is going to be okay, is the most important reason for me to fight the illnesses that plague my life. I owe that to Redrover.
Thank you for all you have done for Pesci and for me.
Bless you all,
Bettyann Rosenthal

My beautiful cat named Zeus had to go to the emergency vet clinic last Wednesday . They found that he had blood in his bladder an was going into kidney failure. My little guy is only 6 years old so to hear this news was devestating. I was told that he needed a catheder as well as to stay there for 4days at the least. I did not know what do because I did not have the funds to take care of him an felt crushed. The vet had recommended a few places that could help.i did not want to put Zeus to sleep so I immediately started sending emails. The next morning I was speaking to Laurel from Red Rover an she had great news that they could donate to Zeus. I felt so blessed an thankful!! Words cannot express how grateful Zeus an I are. Red Rover is amazing an thanks to donators they saved his life :-D -Camille P.

I needed emergency surgery for my Yellow Lab, PrettyFace. RedRover responded to my application for assistance within 24 hours. Rachel was very kind, patient, and compassionate regarding my dog and my situation. She was able to talk to my vet's office (which was not very cooperative at some times) and get some funding for my dog's surgery. Red Rover was one of the only nonprofits that responded so quickly to my request and went the extra mile to help me out. I would recommend them to anyone. They are a VERY worthwhile organization to donate to or volunteer your time. They have inspired me to give back when I get back on my feet financially.

If not for red rover my lil girl wouldn't be here today!! My girl Suzi Q is 3 years old and about 2 weeks ago came the most devastating moment in my life when I was stunned when my girl stopped eating and her stomach was bloated and there was blood and discharge coming out of her private area. I looked for a reason everywhere until I came across serving that looked like all her symptoms it was a life threatening condition called PYOMETRA and it said if she didn't get surgery right away she would die. We went to a vet and they quoted the surgery are around 1200-3000 dollars and me just recently being laid off I had no money I was really scared crying looking for any thing I could possibly do to save my baby... Til I ran across red rover searching on the web for people who help with emergency vet situation. Immediately I filled out an application and someone called me the very same night and a very sweet lady told me she was there to help my baby girl get the help she needed right away :) so I went to the vet and had her surgery the next day now she is in the recovery process its been 4 days since her surgery and she is already getting better she is eating again and getting back to the same as she was before this horrible thing happened thank you red rover!!!! You guys are my angels I don't know what I would have done without my baby girl. The vet said she would have died had I not got her in within the next day or too. THANK YOU!!!

I just wanted to thank everyone at Red Rover for their caring assistance. I live in Verona Pennsylvania a small suburb outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. We do not have many programs that provide financial assistance for vet assistance othert han spade and nuetering. My dog needed dental surgery and I could not afford to have the surgery. I went online filled out the application and they responded in such a short period of time. I was shocked. They were also be caring and patient. I am very appreciative to their help and am thankful to all they have been able to contribute. Without their help Chloe would not be smiling today! Thank you so very very much!

Thank you so for your help saveing my pug Sabrina. According to the vet she was was possibly hours close to death. And definitely would not have survived anouther night. The kindness of your organization helped save her life. She had surgery that removed the infection before it spread to the rest of her body.
I have progressive MS and don't know what I would've done without her in a way you helped save my life to; as the stress of losing her would have aggravated my MS. Your organization also showed me how many good people there are in the world. I can't thank you enough.
Sincerely Lisa

My Dog Lucky had a bleeding mass on his back near his tail. It was bleeding constantly and was causing Lucky incredible discomfort. I was not able to come up with all the money necessary to remove the mass so I had to cancel the surgery I had scheduled. I had my own medical issues that put me into a devastating financial situation. I contacted several organizations. The only one I heard from was RedRover. They were able to help me with some of the surgery cost. We experienced true compassion. The RedRover organization is an ANGEL on earth. Thank you RedRover and Laurel. We are truly Thankful. When I am healthy enough to pay it forward I will.

It's hard to express how grateful I am for the help and support received by Red Rover! They assisted me in the ability to help save our cat Gray from uncertainty and discomfort. After a week of throwing up, not eating and numerous diagnostic tests, we finally found out he has pancreatitis. He will be able to be treated for this now. He's a young cat that my daughter and I have had since birth. The fear was if he had an obstruction and not having the immediate means to pay for surgery. I've already put in $1000. of which I can't afford. Others told me to be realistic. I knew the reality was he deserved a chance to live as his healthy spunky self again. I was determined and desperate to not give up. I reached out and Red Rover came through! I feel like we can begin to get back on our feet and I will never forget the help received by Red Rover. Thank you Rachel and all who make this possible!
