RedRover is helping to provide pet owners with assistance during the coronavirus crisis. The company’s new Emergency Boarding program helps animals who need temporary boarding while their owners are hospitalized due to the coronavirus.

Pet owners can apply for two weeks of boarding for a pet by applying through the company’s website. RedRover has also posted numerous resources for pet owners on its website. RedRover is a non-profit focused on strengthening human-animal bonds through sheltering, disaster relief, financial aid and education, as well as helping animals in crisis situations.

Nicole Forsyth, President and CEO, announced the program over email. In an emailed statement, Forsyth said, “Preserving the human-animal bond is at the heart of what we do. During these trying times we are thankful for Purina’s support for our new emergency boarding grants to help pet owners hospitalized with the coronavirus. Knowing a pet is well cared for will hopefully bring some peace of mind to those undergoing COVID-19 treatment.”

This is a good time to reconsider our intake of animal products to stay healthy. Eating more plant-based foods is known to help with chronic inflammation, heart health, mental wellbeing, fitness goals, nutritional needs, allergies, gut health and more! Dairy consumption also has been linked to many health problems, including acne, hormonal imbalance, cancer, prostate cancer and has many side effects.
