We were able to use Red Rover Safe Escape Grants for our client's beloved pet while she sought temporary safety fleeing a relationship of intimate partner violence. Without this service, I doubt our client would have left a very dangerous situation.
I am so glad to know this program is available for all family members to seek safety during such a trying time.
Thank you again Red Rover !
Redrover was a life saver with their help with emergency surgery for my dog Lacey! She's home now and feels much better.
Thank you again!!
Redrover was a lifesaver literally. Our cat Fluffy had swallowed a small rubber stopper that cause a intestinal blockage and was in desperate need of surgery. The the deposit for surgery was more then half of what my husband and I make in a month and the vet wouldnt do the surgery without the deposit. We contacted Redrover and Laurel called me back with in a few hours and Redrover was able to help us out dramatically. I am writing this while Fluffy is in surgery. I will post a followup on the Redrover site after he is home and happy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My dog Rue was on the verge of dying. She had pyometria and I found myself in a horrible predicament. I could only afford part of the cost for the surgery that meant life or death for her. I contacted Redrover not sure what to expect. I received a response from Laurel right away. She was so sweet and helpful. I let her know what was going on and I needed help to save my Rue that I love soooo much. They helped me in a heartbeat. Thanks to Redrover's contribution, Rue is now healthier than ever. This is a terrific foundation!!! Please donate if you are able. And please, get your dogs spayed and neutered, don't find yourself in the predicament that I was in. Rue is 14 and was never spayed and because of this, I almost lost her. So please, please, have your dogs spayed and neutered, it's the best thing you can do for them!! Thank you so much!!
Everyone at red rover is amazing! When we were in a tough spot and our sweet kitty needed an emergency surgery that was quite costly, they went above and beyond to get us the help we needed to make our babies surgery possible. We are forever greatful for the help we received

What an amazing organization! I am seriously so grateful for the help I received to get our kitty back in his feet and back to the healthy loving kitty he is. I will definitely be paying this forward. Rachael was extremely friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to get us the help we desperately needed. Words cannot express my gratitude
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,
RedRover really help myself and children get our hope back! My children and I are domestic abuse survivors, our dog was all that we had left, that gave us of sense of security, Thanks to redrover, we still have Saul-So and trust, that there are still amazing people in the world. Our dog had an obstruction where he swallow a ball! And without their generous donation we would not have a dog today thank you so much !RedRover, you are truly always on our minds and in our hearts.
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.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
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.
