Christian and Amber work part time to put themselves through college and support their three cats, who are cherished members of the family. Their cats are closely bonded and usually spend the days napping together and grooming each other.
It is "tour" t-shirt time! In 2015, RedRover Responders volunteers sheltered more than 1,400 animals. We can't think of a better way to celebrate their amazing animal-saving efforts than by proudly wearing the 2015 Tour T-shirt. For a limited time, you can order your own commemorative Tour T-shirt listing all of the deployments from 2015. This year, the T-shirt is a heathered gray color with black writing.
RedRover is excited to announce our new RedRover Readers program book, Nobody’s Cats: How One Little Black Kitty Came in from the Cold, written by Valerie Ingram and Alistair Schroff.
Beanie is a beloved indoor cat who had a life-threatening misadventure. After the kitten got caught in a hunter’s snare, support from caring people like you saved her life.
In December, RedRover Responders volunteers headed to Adams County, Ohio, with the Humane Society of the United States, to care for animals who were rescued from a suspected neglect situation. Thirty volunteers made time in their busy holiday schedules to help with the daily care of more than 160 rescued dogs and cats.
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.
RedRover’s new E-Books for Empathy will launch in April 2016! The first RedRover Book in the app, The Restricted Adventures of Raja, comes with a game called Animal Watch, designed to help kids learn animal behavior. The e-book app will be available for download on tablet devices next month!
This month, RedRover is continuing the campaign to help people take better care of their pets by preventing and preparing for future veterinary emergencies. You can join this campaign by taking the #IHeartMyPet pledge today >>
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.
Shelly welcomed Tyson into her family’s home last spring, only a few months after their beloved mastiff had passed away from old age. Shelly knew Tyson was meant to be a member of their family and he instantly bonded with their other dog.
