Founded in 1987, the mission of RedRover is to bring animals out of crisis and strengthen the bond between people and animals through emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance, and education.
In cooperation with Sheltering Animals and Families Together, RedRover is accepting applications from emergency shelter organizations to help victims of domestic violence and their animal companions stay together during times of crisis.
A limited number of RedRover Domestic Violence Safe Housing grants of up to $6,000 each will be awarded to shelter organizations to support the creation of space on site to temporarily house the pets of victims of domestic violence. The one-time grants are intended as start-up funding, with the expectation that the funds will enable the housing of at least one pet within a year of the project's completion.
To be eligible, applicants must be recognized as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be an organization with a primary mission of sheltering victims of domestic violence.
See the RedRover website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
