I rescued a pup on the road I work on in 2010. Starving and abused, "Sam" was in need of care. I brought him to my vets office where he was checked over and was found to have heartworms. Not having the funds myself to treat the worms, I began searching for organizations that might be able to fund his treatment. I found Red Rover, formerly UAN, on the internet. Their Good Samaritan Fund provided $200 of Sam's heartworm treatment cost. (the rest I paid) My intentions were never to keep Sam, but to nurse him back to health and place him in a loving home. We are still fostering Sam and will continue to provide him with love and the proper healthcare(heartguard, annual shots, etc) he deserves. Red Rover is a great organization that came through for Sam. Without their help he would have eventually died from the Heartworms.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching the rescued dog they helped treat transform into a beautiful, healthy and happy guy.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to find a way to make more people aware of the organization and the great things that Red Rover does in regards to animals.
General Member of the Public & I contacted Red Rover for help funding treatment for a rescued dog.
