When Julian, an eight-year-old boy from Sacramento, California, heard a story about a homeless cat in the RedRover Readers program, he was inspired by the caring people that adopt animals every day.
Last week, we told you about the 150+ animals rescued from a North Carolina property. The animals were living in unsafe and unsanitary conditions, and needed help. Because people like you support RedRover, we were able to send emergency volunteers to the temporary shelter to begin providing immediate daily care to the rescued animals.
Your support helped the cats of Maui! Watch the video:
