"RedRover Seeks Applications From Emergency Shelter Organizations to Help Victims of Domestic Abuse and Their Pets

"Animal welfare nonprofit RedRover, in cooperation with Sheltering Animals and Families Together, is accepting applications from emergency shelter organizations to help victims of domestic violence and their animal companions stay together during times of crisis.

"RedRover Domestic Violence Safe Housing grants of up to $3,000 each will be awarded to as many as eight emergency 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 to initiate projects. It is expected that the funds will enable the housing of at least one pet within a year of the project's completion.

"To be eligible, organizations must be recognized as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, applicants must be organizations with a primary mission of sheltering victims of domestic violence.

"Applications for 2013 are due on May 15 and October 30. Funding decisions will be made within thirty days of the application deadline.

"See the RedRover Web site for eligibility and application deadlines."
