Domestic violence survivor says Thank You for helping her and her dog, Zeke

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.

Thanks to you, Kizzy can walk and play again

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.

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!
