KC, an Appaloosa gelding and his caregiver, Amber, have been a team since before the start of the new millenium. Their bond was immediate, as soon as they met they were a great pair. As Amber says, “We just get each other. He's not just an animal, he's one of my best friends.”
Thank you so much for your support and well-wishes for Guy the Shih Tzu!

In January 2015, RedRover Responders volunteers braved long hours and winter storms to help more than one hundred cats on St. George Island, off the coast of Florida. The group of volunteers, in partnership with other feral cat groups, trapped 103 cats, and provided them with vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and basic care until they were later released.
