We did it again!
Our second Community Cat Day was another big success and we'll have lots more info to share with you soon!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who donated, sponsored, helped, and most imprtantly, showed up for the cats in their lives and our community!
New Missions Coming Soon!
Our team has several projects in the works for 2023, including community cat clinics in Ohio and two international missions.
The island of St. Maarten will be our first stop, where we hope to make a serious dent in the overpopulation problem by spaying and neutering hundreds of dogs and cats!
We also left some tasks unfinished in Grand Turk, and are hoping to return in the Fall to get them done!
Tuesday, November 29th is
Global Day of Giving!
Your donations make our missions possible. Please consider giving to our organization on this nationwide
Day of Generosity.
We appreciate you!
4 Leaf Rover Spays and Neuters 138 cats in ONE day!
On the morning of November 6th, five veterinarians and more than a dozen volunteers opened the doors of the Animal Medical Center of Ontario to homeless, feral, stray and low-income household cats.
People lined up several hours before doors opened to take advantage of a low cost option offered by non-profit organization 4 Leaf Rover to spay and neuter these felines, all in hopes of finding a solution to the homeless, stray and feral feline overpopulation in our community and surrounding areas.
For just $25 each, cats were spayed or neutered but also received treatment for post-op pain, fleas, and ticks, a rabies vaccine and retroviral testing. Three of the cats treated by 4 Leaf Rover tested positive positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and two were FeLV (feline leukemia) positive. Sadly, these cats were euthanized as they lack access to treatment and, if released, would likely spread the disease to other cats in the community.
Pet owners and concerned community members came from as far as Zanesville, Vermillion, and Amherst. Rescue organizations like Forgotten Felines of Richland County and Charlie’s Little Angels of Ashland, Ohio also participated.
4 Leaf Rover is a 501c3 non profit organization based in Richland County

What is a POTCAKE?
A Potcake is a mixed breed dog found on several islands in the Caribbean. Their name comes from the congealed peas and rice mixture that local residents traditionally eat, as the overcooked rice that cakes to the bottom of the pot is frequently fed to these strays.
Often homeless and in desperate need of veterinary care, the overpopulation of Potcakes in the Caribbean islands is a serious issue which can be improved with spay/neuter campaigns and medical clinics.
How your donations help
With your generous contributions, 4 Leaf Rover is able to bring help to areas where the need is greatest by hosting spay/neuter and wellness clinics, and transporting animals in need back to the United States.
We are grateful for every contribution, and every amount helps!
The creation of 4 Leaf Rover was inspired by a trip taken by Dr. Susan Burkhart to the Turks & Caicos Islands in December of 2020. There she witnessed the harsh conditions under which homeless dogs, known as Potcakes, are forced to survive. She instantly fell in love with this unique, intelligent, and resilient dog breed and set out to make a difference in their lives.
4 Leaf Rover was created with the goal of improving the lives of dogs and cats that are lacking the most basic necessities. With this in mind, we host spay/neuter and medical clinics, find forever homes, and provide food and basic supplies to improve the quality of life and chance of survival for these forgotten animals.
Our team is made up of animal lovers from all walks of life who have joined forces to change the bad luck of good dogs (and cats!) around the world.
