"Nothing short of a miracle"

A military family from Georgia wrote to RedRover recently and needed our help. Their little three-year-old Shih Tzu, Ginger, had a massive bladder stone and the family couldn’t afford to pay for her surgery. “We are a military family and recently lost our home,”  Elizabeth, mother of three, told us. “We are in the process of getting back on our feet but cannot afford an expensive surgery for Ginger.”

Randon's rescue

Danya and Brent are known in their community as the “animal rescue folks,” so it was no surprise when a neighbor asked them to take in a tiny kitten who needed their help.

Unfortunately, the kitten (who they named “Randon”) had been attacked by another animal and sustained very serious injuries. Randon initially received stitches and had a broken leg repaired, but there were complications with Randon's wounds and an emergency amputation was needed.

Big spots, bigger heart

Stacey was surprised when she found a friendly large dog with big brown spots roaming around her neighborhood. With no collar, tags or owner in sight, Stacey begin calling the pup “Petey,” but later realized Petey was a female! To keep her safe and sound, Stacey decided to give the Petey a life of safety and comfort in her own home.

Stacey took Petey to the veterinarian for an exam and learned that Petey was heartworm positive. The treatment would cost hundreds of dollars more than Stacey and her family could afford.

Polly want a cracker…or a couch cushion?

Parrots are known to be incredibly smart and sensitive – and Tarzan, a beautiful female African Grey parrot, is no different. Tarzan was poorly cared for in her previous home and had nearly plucked herself bald due to stress before finally nestling into her forever home with Pamela. With a lot of love, patience and attention, Pamela helped Tarzan get over her plucking and on the road to a happy life.
