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.

When I applied for my rescue kitty who could barely eat due to severe stomatitis I never expected to be approved. I thought I might get a polite rejection letter. I got an immediate response asking how the little guy was feeling. Red Rover went back and forth on calls with my vet and myself co-ordinating the surgery costs and negotiating payment. Laurel was very sweet and this little boy will get some relief thanks to Red Rover.

I am a recent victim of emotional domestic abuse. I also just lost my favorite aunt and my mother, so this is a really difficult time of hardship for me.
When my cat got ill, I found that my financial situation required me to reach out for help with her vet bills. I could not afford my medicines or even food these days while trying to get on even footing, financially. My companion cat was pretty much all I had and I did not want her to suffer because of my immediate poverty.
Red Rover helped me to be able to provide my cat the surgery she needed. With the help of my case manager at the local domestic violence shelter, we submitted the application to Red Rover for help. My application was approved within one day, funding was arranged to cover her entire bill at the vet's, and she was in surgery within four days of my application.
The staff at Red Rover was so supportive and kind to me.
I can not say enough about how wonderful this organization has been, and I am especially grateful for the sensitivity to victims of domestic violence who are suffering in so many ways: emotionally, financially and facing uncertainly while trying to care for themselves and all their family....even the fur family members. Thank you Red Rover! I am forever grateful!

This organization goes above and beyond helping. I applied for a grant and within an hour they spoke to Mary's Doctor and approved a grant to help pay for her surgery. A little about Mary, she was left on our doorstep by an unknown person after being tortured by having her legs broke, her eye punctured and deafened in one ear. Redrover was very fast and very helpful in getting Mary's eye removal surgery performed. I could never say Thank You enough to this organization.

I am a retired vet. tech./rescue person, I ran a non-profit animal rescue for most of my adult life, in fact I started when I was 17yrs. with a degree in animal sciences. Many of those years my rescue was the only help for animals in an entire county.....no animal control, no shelters, just me, my daughter and a small handful of volunteers. The reason I am mentioning this is because I really know what it takes to run a non-profit for animals, the heart and soul, the heartbreaks and joy, and of course endless hours of commitment.
Recently I found myself being the one that needed help. My daughter was in a horrible car accident, she and her fiance were life-flighted to a hospital in another state. Her child (a k-9 named Riddick) was also in the car. His survival is an amazing journey. The short of it is....he was picked up from the scene of the accident by an amazing veterinarian and taken to her clinic. Everyone was shocked he even lived because he was in the back seat which was crushed all the way against the front seats. His hip was dislocated and he was in need of surgery to remove the head of his femur.
This was a very traumatic time for all involved. We were all in different states, and I have agoraphobia, therefor do not travel at all. As my daughter was in the E.R. with a mangled arm headed to surgry, her fiance fighting for his life with traumatic brain injury, she called me in a panicky shock pleading for me to find Riddick.
I seriously do not know how I would have made it through all of that without Laurel from Redrover! She went above and beyond the call of duty, way beyond. She was my support system, she kept me calm and worked in such a positive and realistic manner. Riddick got the help he needed very quickly, and now is home with me and healing wonderfully from his traumatic ordeal. He is an amazing sweat, gentle boy and now is safe thanks to Redrover and Laurel!!! Thank you so much more than words can say!

Red Rover has been fantastic in helping me with my dog, Mariah. She needed surgery to remove a mass on her spleen, which came at a very bad time financially. Red Rover was so quick to help, and I am forever grateful!

I am so grateful for RedRover. They helped me with the cost of my Tinkerbell's dental surgery cost. Without them she would not of been able to have the much needed surgery. Her mouth was swollen and she was in pain. She is much better now thanks to RedRover. Tinkerbell is the baby up front.
