Cleveland, Ohio (October 1, 2018) Embrace Pet Insurance, a leading pet insurance provider, has donated $5,000 to RedRover, a national nonprofit animal welfare organization based in Sacramento, to assist with animal-related relief efforts. Embrace believes in the power of paying it forward and giving back to the pet community is a company core value. In this spirit, Embrace donates $2 to a pet-related charity for every policy sold and is always seeking new ways to help. Partnering with RedRover is a natural fit.
Since 1987, RedRover has focused on bringing animals out of crisis and strengthening the human-animal bond through emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance, and humane education. Their three programs are RedRover Readers, RedRover Responders, and RedRover Relief.
Embrace's $5,000 donation will assist with RedRover Responders, which provides emergency sheltering for animals in natural disasters, including Hurricane Florence, and manmade disasters, such as hoarding or puppy mills.
"When Embrace Pet Insurance learned about RedRover's mission and scope of work, we knew we had to be involved. They're doing exactly what we at Embrace believe in deeply, bringing animals from crisis to care," said Ambrish Jaiswal, Chief Executive Officer at Embrace.
In the month of October, Embrace will donate $2 of every policy sold to the RedRover Relief program. The RedRover Relief program provides financial and emotional support for pet owners in need of emergency veterinary care and assistance with the cost of boarding to help victims of domestic violence escape with their pets.
Join Embrace and RedRover in raising awareness about the link between domestic violence and animal abuse during October's Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Embrace believes that pets are family, and it's important to help families find safety together during times of crisis. With the support of volunteers and donations, RedRover is helping families and pets find safety through their Safe Housing and Safe Escape programs. Through RedRover's Safe Housing Grant program, 73 domestic violence shelters have received grants, and over $477,563.77 has been dispersed since 2012.
RedRover President and CEO Nicole Forsyth shared "RedRover is so thankful for the generous support of Embrace Pet Insurance and their help to elevate awareness about the link between domestic violence and animal abuse during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We believe pets are family, and this donation will help provide many safe nights for both survivors and their pets escaping an abusive environment."
