My kitten Mitzi had a spay operation at a clinic where she got a life threatening infection and had to be hospitalized at my Vet's office. Such a large bill was quite a surprise and I had no idea how to pay it. Along with other fundraising options, I reached out to Red Rover for help. Like a safety net they were there! What a relief to get help when I was so desperate. So easy to work with, Laurel was wonderful! I felt at ease and not judged. Thank you so much for your help and I'm sure Mitzi would say thank you if she could.
I found out my cat had an overactive thyroid and the treatment is very expensive. I knew I couldn't afford it on my own, but I needed to get my cat the help that she needed so I looked into charities that help people in my situation. Thankfully, I came across RedRover Relief. The woman I worked with was so amazing, so helpful and so sweet, it felt like she really cared. The whole process was incredibly easy and fast. I am happy to say that last week my cat went in for her treatment and she is back home recuperating. I wouldn't have been able to do it so quickly and easily without their help. My cat and I are forever grateful
My family adopted a dog from our local animal shelter shortly after loosing a pet to a medical issue. Copper came home and seemed happy and healthy at first. After a few days he began to act off and then began vomiting and refusing to eat. We located a vet that was open on Sunday and took him in. The vet tested him and told us he had Parvo. Treatment was needed immediately. Nearly $1500 was the estimate to bring him through the treatment. We managed to raise enough funds to get the first day of treatment started but were still a few hundred short of enough of a deposit that the vet would let us make payments on the remainder. Redrover was able to contact us and the vet and arrange to help out with the bill in just one day. Their efforts were enough to ensure that we could finance the remainder and continue to raise funds while Copper got everything he needed to fight the Parvo. Cannot say enough about this group. Without their help Copper would have been put down and my kids gone through the pain of loosing another pet.
My cat Muse was in a life threatening situation with a UTI. I had exhausted all available funds and had no way to pay for the immediate necessary vet care and hospitalization. The vet put me in contact with Red Rover and Laurel with RedRover approved a grant that provided enough of the funds necessary to make it possible for my critically ill fellow to get through this crisis. There are no words to express my gratitude... I would spend my last penny to save the life of my pets but this time it was not enough and RedRover made the difference in saving his life. Thank you!! I will support you financially when it is possible for me to do so.
Red rover has saved rmy baby's life. My little Chihuahua was attacked by a German shepherd and because my husband just passed away i had no money to help my baby. He needed minor surgery and staples and they were able to help with the veterinarian bill. I couldn't believe it now soon my baby jasper will be better i owe you red rover my husband gave me jasper 8 years ago for many birthday and i would be lost without him thank you again..
My dog Jasper needed emergency surgery and I had no way of paying for it. I found RedRover online and they were fast, friendly and helpful. If it wasn't for them I don't know what I would've done, they're amazing. They've shown me that there are good people in this world.

Last Friday my beautiful angel, Romeo an 8 year old peek-a-poo had problems eating and was not him self. I began looking in his mouth and found four loose little teeth. After a rough night of pain and discomfort we were able to rush Romeo into the veterinary hospital to find out a diagnosis. We were told Romeo had Stage 4 periodontal disease with exposed bone. He had a terrible infection and required surgery. I was so scared and did not know how we were going to afford this emergency. I began searching google and found RedRover. I completed their on-line application, I was contacted immediately by Rachael who requested some documents. Rachael blessed Romeo with the emergency surgery he needed today, Wednesday, March 18, 2014. I am in tears (happy tears) writing this review because I know my beautiful boy will be healthy and happy again. Redrover provided me a with a huge blessing by helping pay for Romeo's surgery. I will pay this forward every chance I get to make sure I am part of this amazing organization helping other animals and their pet parents. Thank you Redrover for saving my Romeo.

02/15/15 we got some bad news from our vet, Rocky, our dog was going to die if he did not have surgery asap. This happened over night. He was diagnosed with severe necrosis around his private area, deep edema absess with tissue. Major blood infection damage to urinary tract. My heart dropped to the floor. What am I going to do when I have no money, I came home & prayed & turned to the internet where I searched out foundations. Many of them did not want to help and many could not help. I came across Red Rover & submitted my story, they called me within a couple of days, I have began to lose hope. Laurel called me and gave me hope again. They are going to help our best friend, companion out for his surgery. He will be going in morning & start getting better. If it was not for Red Rover, Rocky would die. I am so gracious to all of their help & support. I would recommend them all the time. After we get through with this, we will definetly donate money to this foundation once a month so we can help Red Rover help other people like us. We would not have been able to go through with this if it was not for Red Rover.
