Domestic violence survivor says Thank You for helping her and her dog, Zeke

Of the many dangers pets face in violent homes, veterinary neglect is a common yet rarely highlighted reality. Abusers often maintain strict control over the household budget and won't allow their victims to spend money on either routine or emergency veterinary care. As a result, many of the animals we help to board through our Safe Escape grant program are in need of veterinary care.

Thanks to you, Kizzy can walk and play again

Lauren got attached to Kizzy the pit bull long before Kizzy became a part of Lauren’s family. Kizzy originally belonged to Lauren’s neighbor, who didn't take very good care of her. Five months earlier, Kizzy had escaped from her neighbor’s yard and was hit by a car, but Kizzy never received treatment. After months of pleading, Lauren finally convinced her neighbor to allow her to adopt Kizzy, and the first thing she did was take her to the vet.

You make us proud

So far this year, you’ve helped more than 1,200 animals by supporting the RedRover Responders program. Animals who were neglected, malnourished, deprived of basic care because of animal cruelty, or separated from their families because of natural disasters. These animals got a second chance at a new journey and a chance at happiness – because of you.
