Andy's outdoor adventures

Andy is a beloved indoor cat who, one day when his owner Amy wasn't looking, snuck outside and had an accident. When Amy finally found him, his jaw was obviously injured and and he was bleeding. Andy's family immediately took the injured cat to the ER vet and found out that Andy’s jaw was broken in two places, and that without surgery, he would not be able to eat.

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!

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.

Ernesto's kitten

by Nicole Forsyth, RedRover President and CEO

Imagine not knowing what a kitten’s “purr” or “meow” means. Ernesto, a first-grader who lives in an apartment with his mother and sister in Los Angeles, California, didn’t understand what it meant when cats purred until his first-grade teacher, Susan Courtney, introduced him to the RedRover Readers program.
