It takes a village to help victims and their pets

Each week here at RedRover, we receive requests for help for pets of people facing domestic violence. The RedRover Safe Escape program provides financial assistance to place pets in a safe enviornment, such as a boarding facility, while their family resides safely at a domestic violence shelter. 

We received this letter from a family violence advocate, telling the story of Elizabeth* and her pets. Elizabeth and her family wouldn't be safe and sound today without your support – thank you!

Stop, Drop and Rover: Practice home and fire safety for you and your pet

When we leave our pets unattended at home, we may not realize the potential dangers posed by our household items and appliances. A gas leak, dryer malfunction or frayed wire could mean serious harm, or even death for your pet.

‘Surprise’ puppy gets to be a real puppy again!

Ellie Mae is an adorable beagle pup who was rescued from a very bad situation when she was only 10 weeks old. Her rescuers saw how she was being neglected and abused, and convinced the owners to give them Ellie Mae. They contacted their granddaughter, Danyelle, to see if she’d be willing to bring Ellie Mae into her home, and she said yes!
