My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for RedRover, Sacramento, CA, USA
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
