When Christina adopted Tippy, a small tan-and-white Chihuahua mix from a local animal shelter, the shelter staff told her that Tippy was diagnosed with heartworm. Christina’s family was prepared to take on the expense of treatment that the shelter dog needed, but Tippy went downhill fast and needed costly emergency veterinary treatment.
“My mother is on disability and I am newly self-employed, so neither of us knew what we were going to do!” Christina said. “I started researching and wrote to over 10 organizations that claimed to help with vet bills; only two responded. The first one was RedRover. I was so happy that RedRover actually cared and responded as quickly as they did.”
Tippy received a RedRover Relief grant to pay for her urgent care, and thanks to your support, she is now on her way to a full recovery from the heartworm infestation.
“Thank you so much for helping us save Tippy’s life,” Christina said. “And thank you for all that you do to help others.”
