RedRover Relief Urgent Care Grants

We provide financial assistance, resources and emotional support to pet guardians struggling with economic hardship when pets are in life-threatening situations.

The RedRover Relief Urgent Care grant program helps animals who need urgent and emergency veterinary care. The typical grant is around $200, and is intended to fill a small gap in funding that is keeping an animal from care. Decisions are based upon several factors, including: medical urgency, financial need, available funding, and eligibility. Due to the overwhelming number of applications we receive, we cannot help everyone.

Once an application has been submitted, you can expect to receive a response by email or phone within one to two business days.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
