RedRover: October Is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month


Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/03/2016 -- Did you know that October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month? While we reflect on what this means to each of us individually, we also want to consider what it means to our family members without a voice...our furry pet family members. 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.

Nicole Forsyth, President and CEO of RedRover, is making a powerful difference for both animals and people, and we will learn about all of the programs RedRover has to offer. RedRover©, a national nonprofit organization based in California, has distributed over $40,000 in grant funds to 8 domestic violence shelters throughout the USA so the shelters can create pet-friendly lodging to house victims' pets. Since the program began, RedRover has given $193,636 to 48 shelters. Did you know that most domestic violence shelters do not currently allow pets? RedRover's Safe Housing program provides essential funding to domestic violence shelters to enable them to create on-site space to house pets.
