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
Geographic areas served: U.S. and Canada
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.

Red rover is like having the support of angels.. my dog buddy has dka g diabetic keto acidosis) and need immediate medical treatment.. with the support of red rover, the vet has begun treatment and hopefully he is beginning on the road to a long happy life.. I was in despair filling out applications for twelve hours in hours of finding help. And then rachel called saying they would help with part of the bill.. it brought me to tears to know that someone out there cares enough to help..out of hundreds of calls and applications, red rover was the only one to respond... I thank god for them...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise the amount of help they can offer. I'm not saying that ANY help is not appreciated, just saying that if their donors could help the organization more, they could help zero income families pay the whole Bill rather than just a portion(leaving an outstanding balance for the family to deal with)

Red Rover is truly a life saver I would have not been able to help my Pet and Companion. Penny and I are so grateful. I took Penny early this morning to get her tail amputated and to get spayed. The only complication would be the infection because she had it for so long and the antibiotics were not helping anymore. But other wise she is healthy and happy. I will keep you posted on her recovery. God is Good....

Red rover is amazing my fiancee and I have a 1 yr 7 month old dog named Mali who we love so much, she needed immediate medical attention and I was desperate, she had an intestinal blockage that needed immediate surgery or we would of had to consider euthanasia. I applied online thinking they wouldnt respond back in time but within a few hours I was on the phone with Rachel and I got the funding and the surgery was performed a few hours later. Without the help from red rover we may have lost our girl. I am eternally grateful to everyone at redrover and all contributors. I didn't think I was gonna get any assistance after being on the phone with no hope all day as the clock was ticking down. I started to have a breakdown at the thought of having to make a life changing decision. Thank you REDROVER!

Sincerely,
Mathew&Charlene&Mali

RedRover eased so much of our worry. Our 5 year old indoor kitty Possum managed to get out for just over an hour. He came back with an injured front leg. Through the vet we learned our baby had been shot! He was required to have the leg amputated. I found out about RedRover this morning while waiting for his surgery. When I applied for a grant I didn't really expect even a response. I mean this just happened yesterday and they were amputating the leg today. Who's going to be able to help you out in that time frame? In less than 3 hours I heard back from Rachel and before I even got a call back from our vet with an update on the surgery that was in progress, she had a grant ready for him. Never have I ever been treated with such empathy in my life. I could never thank them enough for helping in this time of need. We will get our baby back tomorrow with just a little less of him than when we arrived but our hearts will come back with so much more thanks to RedRover. And thank you to all who help RedRover do what they do.

Dearest Lauren, how can one thank an angel from above with all the help you have given me and Bella, if it weren't for you and RedRovers selfless love for helping injured or sick animals, Bella might have lost her leg. I called many in NJ where I live and no one could help me. Bella is now on the mend, thanks to RedRover , I couldn't have done it without you. God Bless you all in what you do, helping those in bad times and in need of help, YOU WERE THERE!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, an of course Bella thanks you most of all. With my deepest appreciation and gratitude, Pam.

Dear angel of ours, we are writing you this letter of thanks for helping save our fur baby’s life. As much as words cannot begin to describe just how thankful we are for your act of kindness, we will make word of it to others. Our whole family thank you for the warmth and caring that you showed to us and to Cosmoe. You probably hear it a lot, but our dog is a member of the family and will continue to be thanks to your donation. Thank you very much for your assistance during our recent family crisis! The care that you help provided for our Cosmoe, is greatly appreciated. Your willingness to help and talking to me meant a great deal to me. It is refreshing to see someone "go the extra mile" in providing emergency financial assistance to needed animals I truly believe that you're many animals angel sent from God. I Bless you and give thanks to you from the finest and most honest place in my heart

sincerely,
Toby Jones

Lucy was very sick with allergies. The doctor gave a shot for 30 days but he didn't get meds for afterwards and Lucy was scratching like crazy. Within days she had torn her fur off her ear and in few other places. I was getting my pay on Thursday but she would have suffered 3-4 days. It was critical she get her meds asap so RedRover came through and paid for her antibiotics and allergy pills plus they referred to me a place where I can get them cheaper the next time around because it'll be an ongoing thing for Lucy. She is almost all healed. I'm so grateful to this organization coming through the same day on time. Thank you RedRover.

I am a hard working person that was going through a tough time with my best friend Louie. He was who I had to come home to every day and the best inheritance from my dad who passed away in 2006. He was my buddy. I was so grateful for the help I received because I have a good job but was struggling financially at the time he became sick and I couldn't afford his procedure. No one wanted to help me at first because I have a job. Red Rover came through for me. Unfortunately he was misdiagnosed and became very sick after the procedure and ultimately passed from liver failure but I was still so grateful for the help because I never ask for help. I am thankful to be able to give back now that my finances are back on track and I love seeing all the good that comes from the help of this organization.

I want to say a few things about RedRover. First of all, they are amazing. I was in a desperate situatioveryn with my oldest gal dog, Bella. She is 15 years old and the best friend in the world! She went blind in one eye over a year ago, but then it developed into something horrid and the globe of her eye ruptured. It was horrid for all of us especially bella. We have struggled with the economy for years but knew we had to get her surgery. Without the assistance of RedRover and their commitment to a great animal hospital that was willing to work with us, surgery would not have happened. Needless to say, Bella is going great even with the big cone on her head! Thank you so much RedRover. It's nice to know there are organizations that help those struggling with their beloved pets!

RedRover contacted me the very same day that I submitted my application for financial assistance. The woman I worked with was absolutely wonderful. I'd encountered uncooperative employees at the facility that my kitty needed a procedure from and RedRover was patient and understanding every step of the way. I am so thankful for them and would recommend them to anybody, both for people who need assistance and to encourage people to donate. 5 stars in my book!
