Dog and family stick together through domestic violence

Gina’s dog, Cooper, meant everything to her children. One of Gina’s kids had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and Cooper had bonded closely with the sick child over the years. But the entire family suffered under the hands of their abuser, and Cooper was a victim of domestic violence, too. Gina knew it was time to escape, but she wouldn’t leave without Cooper.

Building for a brighter future

RedRover Responders volunteers are known for sheltering animals in disasters and sometimes, that means lending a hand to small communities in need.   Ten years ago, the Hancock County Animal Shelter in Mississippi was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. After seven years of fundraising, the county was able to reopen the shelter in the town of Kiln. Since then, the tiny shelter has worked heroically to provide shelter for stray and abandoned animals.  However, it had limited kennel space to help all the dogs and pups who needed their help.

UPDATE: Guy the Shih Tzu

May 27, 2015

“Guy has been growing more and more frisky,” Sandi told us. “He is becoming a whirlwind of hopping, running and tail wagging. He has taught us that he knows how to fetch, loves tummy rubs and car rides. His stamina is still low so he naps often, but he is showing he is happy.” Thank you to all who rallied and supported Guy on his road to health!
