RedRover Relief Pre-Application Questions

RedRover Relief provides financial assistance grants and resources so pet caregivers can care for animals who need urgent veterinary care. Grants are intended to fill a small funding gap to allow treatment to occur. The typical grant is $100 to $200. Due to the large volume of applications we receive, the program is unable to help everyone who applies. Before applying, you must have a clear diagnosis and specific treatment plan in place from a veterinarian.

 

No, the animal has not recently been seen by a veterinarian.
You must have a specific diagnosis and treatment plan in place to apply for the RedRover Relief program. Once there is a specific treatment plan in place, please come back to our website to reexamine the RedRover Relief guidelines to determine whether your situation is eligible for funding.
No, the veterinarian is recommending more diagnostic work.
Unfortunately, the RedRover Relief program is unable to assist with the cost of diagnostic work such as office visits, x-rays or testing. Once all diagnostic work is done and there is a specific treatment plan in place, please come back to our website and reexamine the RedRover Relief guidelines to determine whether your situation is eligible for funding.
No, the animal does not have an immediately life-threatening injury or illness.
RedRover Relief grants are intended to be used for urgent situations that require immediate treatment, and cannot be used for basic care needs (such as routine dental cleanings or spay/neuter costs). Due to limited funding, we are also unable to help with costs toward treatment for ongoing conditions (such as cancer, Addison's disease, diabetes, Cushing's syndrome).
No, the prognosis is poor and/or the animal will need ongoing care.
Due to limited funding, RedRover Relief is unable to help with the cost of care for animals with a poor prognosis, or with costs for ongoing treatments or ongoing conditions (such as Addison's disease, diabetes, Cushing's syndrome, chemotherapy, or radiation). Please visit www.RedRover.org/help for a directory of other financial assistance programs.
No, the applicant has not applied for Care Credit.
Please note that applicants are required to seek other sources of funding before applying. Before RedRover Relief grants can be considered as an option, pet owners must first apply for Care Credit. Please visit the Care Credit website (http://www.carecredit.com/vetmed/) to submit an application. Applications can be submitted individually or with a co-signer. See our fundraising ideas for more suggestions: http://www.redrover.org/fundraising-tools-tips-and-resources.
Please note: The applicant will be required to provide proof of income for all members of the household.
If the applicant's yearly household income exceeds $50,000, unfortunately, they do not qualify for a RedRover Relief grant.
