Become an On-Call Angel

"RedRover is a charity that my wife and I are extremely passionate about. We have been On-Call Angels with RedRover since I first found out about the organization while on a deployment in 2014. 

Our time as On-Call Angels has provided us with some of the most rewarding opportunities to contribute toward keeping families happy, healthy, and whole. Melissa and I look forward to each opportunity we are presented to help another family. We've been a part of 34 cases since we started participating in this program and each opportunity brings us so much joy to be able to help with. "

-  Josh Levine, On-Call Angel


An On-Call Angel is a supporter who is willing to fund grants to help specific animals in urgent need. Each year, RedRover funds about 500 applications for financial assistance with emergency veterinary care for pets in crisis. Our average RedRover Relief Urgent Care grant is small (typically between $150 and $500), and our case managers also negotiate with the veterinary offices to reduce the cost of care and work with clients to help them fundraise through crowdsourcing.

Our goal is to approve all eligible RedRover Relief applications. In order to do that, we ask our compassionate On-Call Angels to pledge one of the following:

  • a minimum donation of $150 per case at least twice a year
  • a minimum donation of $250 per case at least once a year
  • $21 a month over the course of a year
As an On-Call Angel, you will receive an email summarizing the pet’s condition and need, and whenever possible a picture and update on the animal as well.

You can be confident that your donation is helping the animals and families who need it most. We prioritize those who have debilitating challenges, including the disabled, elderly, unemployed, and military families.

Ready to get started as an On-Call Angel? Here’s what we need to know:
  • How much are you comfortable giving to a specific case?
  • How often would you like to give (monthly, quarterly, or once or twice a year)?
  • Do you prefer cats, dogs or any animal in need?
Based on your desired frequency, we will match you with a RedRover Relief case and email you to see if you are able to make a gift. You can then donate online, provide your credit card number over the phone, or mail us a check.

We provide funds directly to the veterinary clinics, not to the clients, guaranteeing that the animals receive the help they need. If you have additional questions about the On-Call Angel program, please contact Savannah Verdon at sverdon@redrover.org or (916) 429-2457 ext 316.
