After learning from a co-worker that a puppy in her neighborhood was being abused and neglected, Jordan, a long-time animal lover, stepped up and offered to rescue the three-month-old Labrador mix puppy. She named her Raven, and knowing she needed medical attention, Jordan immediately took little Raven to a veterinarian for a check-up.
The vet discovered Raven not only had fleas and worms, but a life-threatening hernia that was likely a result of the abuse. The vet informed Jordan that it was urgent that the hernia be surgically repaired. Jordan was prepared to pay for the care Raven needed, but this unexpected procedure was beyond what she could afford.
Jordan applied for a RedRover Relief grant to receive financial help with the cost of Raven’s surgery. RedRover Relief case managers went to work right away to ensure that the puppy got the care she needed.
Raven was able to get her surgery the next morning, giving her a chance at a brand new life! After a couple bumps on the road to recovery, Raven is feeling much better and has endless puppy energy, keeping Jordan busy and entertained.
Jordan wrote a review on GreatNonprofits, saying, “I was so impressed with the amount of effort and care the people at RedRover had for me and Raven. I could not have gotten Raven the care she needed without their help. I will forever be grateful for what they have done.”
