I'd really like to Thank RedRover for the kindness and financial support they helped me in the time of need with my precious furbaby Callie who needed emergency surgery and to the People who donate to RedRover to the cause of helping people and their furbaby's, I'd like to give a special Thanks to Laurel at RedRover who is an angel here on earth! And Thanks to Surrey veterinary clinic who did such a great job with her surgery, God Bless you all
I never wanted for anyone to know how difficult things had gotten for me. I wouldn't ask for help even when I'm hurting but, watching my loyal and loving pet suffer is more than I could handle. Sunny and I met one day when I was walking on a bike path between the beach along the 101. He was tiny and filthy, he could barely walk from his matted fur. Another Persian was found and rescued, I found out by searching Craigslist. I questioned the Rescue in Ojai where apparently Sunflowers sister was taken and being treated, she was lucky and received surgery to remove her eye. The caregiver there told me it was probably a kitten mill disposing of the unwanted kittens. So, Sunny was a GIFT for only me to love. I bathed him and ,bathed him.... and he slept snuggled and exhausted in a towel in my arms and never moved once til breakfast, then slept again till second breakfast. It's fair to say that keeping Sunflower healthy has been the most important priority for me since that day. He has never had the spoiled life he deserves.
Two years ago, a drunk driver hit our parked truck that slammed back into our motorhome. Poof, we are now in a car. We all had injuries, Sunny broke his first tooth from this. Now,he has four more totalling five teeth to be removed. I know the feeling. It is abscessed and he is suffering . The staff at MERCY CRUSADES in Oxnard,California recommended REDROVER to me. Buena Animal Hospital matched the discounted fees offered from Mercy,so Sunny could have his surgery the 28th of June rather than waiting till August 24th. This only gave me five days to raise $930.30. after the initial $159.00 for pre-surgery diagnostic work. BUT FAITH can move mountains. REDROVER and their FANTASTIC STAFF have helped push us up to the summit! The application was something that didn't intimidate or cause me any feeling of indignity. NANCY was so much more than efficient,but extremely dedicated! Always treating us just as if she herself had Sunflower on her lap for a cuddle as he smiles his little smushy face smile.
His appointment is a demonstration of faith AND that I believe in miracles. Now I have proof. Sunny is my whole heart. REDROVER and Sunflower have a lot in common ,they are gifted at bringing joy and hope to the people and pets who need it so badly. Thank you also to CAMARILLO HUMANE SOCIETY and the very awesome BETTY JO who helped with funding ,too. These people unleash UNBELIEVABLE STAMINA. I hope they always receive the support they deserve to continue their work, just like they helped us!!!! LOVE Sunflower and Rayna
We are a domestic violence shelter and we had heard of and were aware of Red Rover but had never used their services. We had a victim the needed to leave a very abusive relationship but afraid to leave her dogs behind and what might happen to them. We told her to bring them along and we would somehow house her 8 dogs. I contacted Red Rover, filled out the paperwork and they were able to help with paying for the boarding of the dogs until the client was able to make other arrangements and we were no safe housing her. Red Rover staff was very nice and easy to work with and their form to fill out to obtain their service was easy to fill out. The victim was very appreciative and so were we with the help Red Rover could give.
i live in naples, florida and our community was badly hit by hurricane irma last year. i am a volunteer at the collier county domestic animal services shelter. we are a wonderful shelter and help so many animals each and every day! our shelter was so blessed to have volunteers come from red rover to help us after the hurricane - they did all of our wash so we had plenty of clean towels and also helped us clean and organize our back area space, washing all the crates and kennels, etc. they were an absolute godsend! i am now a contributing member of red rover so i can help them continue to provide support and care throughout our communities!
My poor Bugsy, 10 years old had fallen down the stairs, first head over heels then barrel rolled down the remaining stairs, thus incurring a head trauma and collapsed lung. He needed to be put in an oxygen enriched kennel for at least 3 days. I have been out of work for 2 1/2 years waiting on my disability and no money coming in. Laurel at Red Rover was there for us in our time of need for Bugsy and was able to help tremendously with the bill. I will be forever grateful for Red Rovers help.
thank you again
My puppy Manchas Is extremely sick with parvo virus, I contacted the Red Rover Foundation looking for assistance because at a previous clinic I had been charged 1100 and my dog was still dying. Yesterday morning he was clod, his temp was 94 and he didn't have much longer left so I rushed him to a vet that I had heard good things about. Red Rover contacted me within hours of submitting my application and got him a grant and I couldn't be more thankful. Once my baby Is feeling better if love to show pictures of him. Thank you so much for your assistance
RedRover Relied Fund has the most caring individuals working in their organization. Nancy was so sweet and kind. You truly sense they do want to help your family. I would highly recommend you reach out to them. Even if they cannot assist you they will direct you towards vets in your area who can perform treatments at a lower cost. They will also direct you to other organizations that may also be able to assist you. Our Brutus thanks you all so very much.
Maia has been sick for a few weeks now, started out with no eating or drinking. Which I found out she had a fever, started her on antibiotics and pain meds, which didn't change much. A handful of days later I came home to blood on the back of Maia's leg and spots through out my apartment. Took her into the vet for that to find out she had an abscess that burst. So got that cleaned up and brought her home staying on the antibiotics and cleaning the wound every night.
When I got home last night I noticed her abscess had grown in size quite a bit, I immediately starting internet searching on what would need to be done and the cost of it, which I then did two things. I applied for a care credit card and was approved. But I also put in an application to Red Rover Relief, which is a organization that helps covering vet bills when you are struggling to yourself. In the morning I called the vet first thing and they told me to come in to get it looked at. They determined it needed to be cleaned and stitched up.
I was happy to know they could help, but I immediately started to stress about how I was going to pay for such a procedure. I left Maia with the vet and went to work. A few hours into work I get a call telling me Maia's surgery went well and that I should be able to pick her up in the morning. Immediately after I get a call from Red Rover Relief saying they want to help. The amount of stress that left my body from that one phone call is unbelievable, I cannot thank them enough for their help in getting Maia better, and making sure I can keep my best friend and make sure she is healthy.
Red Rover gave our family emergency funds towards our foster cat's surgery to remove a tumor on his paw. We are filled with awe and gratitude for this organization!
Red Rover helped our family help our baby girl when someone let her out of our fence when my fiance was in the hospital getting stitches from an injury. We still are not sure if she was stolen and used as a bait dog and then set out and she found her way home or if she wandered off after the gate was opened and was attacked by something. After being gone for 6 days she showed back up at like 4 in the morning and she smelled like someone had dug her out of a grave because her infection was so bad. She has now been treated and is finally out of bandages and still has to see a specialist but she is recovering from an ordeal that the vet said had she spent one more night out on her own she would not have made it as they were not even sure she would survive her first night being hospitalized.
This organization came through for our little family in a huge way. They helped me help my baby Roxton and they will never know exactly how much that means to us

Hi friends, I am excited to share with you my experience with Red Rover and the health of my longtime friend baby! He is a nine year old American Eskimo. I rescued him from the streets where he was staying close to a highway and the fence was damaged. The original people who found him feared he would get out into the expressway and get hit. I brought him home and he has been my best friend ever since! This year he developed a huge growth on his inner leg close to his abdomen that hindered his walking and running. My being on disability was unable to afford the surgery to have it removed.
I learned about Red Rover online when searching for any organization that could help. Some of the others I called we're of no help at all!
I filled out my application online and soon got a call from Laurel. She was an amazing and helpful person! She took the time to talk to me and help me make good decisions on what to do with my dog baby and helped me every step of the way with the process of getting everything arranged to help with the cost of payment for his surgery. She went over and above making phone calls to myself and the vet to make sure payment was in place on day of surgery! With my being on disability there was no way I could have afforded it on my own. I am so thankful and grateful for all the great people at Red Rover and the Donors that made his surgery possible!
He can now walk and run again!
My 13 year old Basset Hound had an infection in his mouth and needed 4 to 5 teeth removed. I was placed on unemployment and couldn't afford the vet bill. I had to watch him get sicker and sicker so I started calling around for any help I could get. I finally came across Red Rover and WOW I did not expect the care and concern for my pet and they provided funds to my Vet to help aid in the care my dog desperately needed and now my dog (best friend) will be healthy again. I can't express what it means to have organizations like this in the hard times. Not to mention the caring way they handled the situation. Thank you so very much Red Rover!
I bought my first little dog on fb. When I met the lady to see Her, I knew I had to save her. We have always rescued big dogs so this was a first for us. She everything to me. I became disabled after working 27 yrs doing Mortgages. So we are home all day. She became very sick and I was scared and brought her to a DR vet. We was charged 974 for xrays and blood work. They wanted at least 5,000 for surgery. We don't have this extra money. (I put off the dentist for her) The next day I found a vet who said 600 to 700. I heard about Red Rover and contacted them. I spoke with 2 ladies who was very kind and helped us with some of the cost. What surprised me the most was it was located in a different state. I can't Thank You enough for the help you do for our fur babies. When I get back on my feet I will donate back. She would have passed away without this surgery. I am including a picture the first day I purchased her. God Bless!!
My vet discovered that my 2 year old cat, Wilbur, had 2 life threatening stones blocking his urethra. With surgery over $800 and my current unemployment, I didn't know what to do. I contacted Red Rover about my situation, and was generously offered a grant to help with some of the surgery. Because of Red Rover's help, Wilbur is now stone free, recovering and doing great! He is off his pain meds and has been switched to urinary care food. I have noticed a huge difference in his litter box habits- before, he was in and out of the litter box every 10 minutes trying to go to the bathroom, and now he is able to relieve himself fully. So happy and relieved to see my kitty alive and well!! So grateful for Red Rover.
My 6 year old Boxer girl needed expensive surgery to have a malignant tumor removed from her back leg muscles. As a senior on a fixed income, I could not pay for all of it. RedRover Relief Grants in Sacramento has an application that I filled out on line. Their requirement included getting a Care Credit Card for which I applied. I told them I rescued this dog at 10 months and promised to take care of her and she would watch out for me! Red Rover was quick to respond in selecting my situation. They were very friendly and receptive. They spoke with the vet clinic right away setting up their end of the financial arrangement. They donated their grant within the 7-10 days promised. It was a miracle. Their help was such a blessing.
I reached out to Red Rover in need of a pledge for our dog's surgery. She had 2 massive tumors that needed immediate care. Red Rover contacted me immediately and Daisy was able to have surgery within a week. Thank so much Red Rover and Nancy for all your help
If i could give 10
My pet Face is family and when he needed surgery it was no Question he was going to get it no matter what it took. Even though I have a very limited income and get assistance from the state I was going to do whatever it took to make sure face was healthy and get what he needs. My sister and I started researching the Internet and came across RedRover and let me tell you it was an easy process with the most wonderful person working there, Laurel she was caring understanding and very informative she jumped right in and got things started thank you so much RedRover you saved my best friend Face
