Target demographics: animals in crisis
Direct beneficiaries per year: nearly 2,000 animals in crisis. 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.

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!

This nonprofit (several as a matter of fact: RedRover was the fastest responder) and Dr Loveland are to be Most Highly commended....and recommended! They have bigger hearts than the VA helping disabled veterans, I should know...I am one. Three cheers for compassion and care! THANK YOU. Cannot wait to show pics of her bouncing healthy again :-)

Around Christmas we found an abandoned dog that was about a year old. He had been hit by a car with a broken tail limping and you could see every bone in his body. Our family went by where he had hidden out and brought him good and water for a week until we were able to actually pick him up and take him to receive treatment. Thanks to Red Rover our new furry friend Luke is healthy and on the way to recovery. Luke received surgery for his broken tail and had it amputated thanks to the donation made by this organization. They gave him a second chance and helped him be of ensured his spot in our home. We are so blessed and thankful for things like this this day in time. True blessings and lots of smile from NC! Thanks again for everything.

In May our 7 month old family dog Rex, was a victim of domestic violence and brutally stabbed three times trying to protect his family. We immediately searched for help and received immediate feedback and assistance from Laurel at Red Rover Relief. Her patience, empathy and help was amazing. Rex is home now and recovering. With Red Rover's financial assistance Rex was able to get his stab wounds surgically fixed. OUR FAMILY IS SOO GREATFUL AND THANKFUL TO RED ROVER! THANKS LAUREL :)
