founded by a relief pro, loved by relief pros

Relief Rover deeply understands the needs of relief professionals. We’re a tight-knit relief community, here to help you do your best work.

A message from Dr. Cindy Trice

Remember 2017? Back then, with a single goal burning bright – supporting fellow relief vets across the nation – Relief Rover was just a seed of an idea.

They say solopreneurship is lonely, but the truth is, I was never alone.

You, the incredible people of Relief Rover, joined by the thousands over the past five years! Your suggestions, ideas, every piece of feedback, request, comment, email, article, and interview you shared – that's what nurtured Relief Rover into the vibrant community it is today.

Now, by joining forces with Hound, another software company built on putting people first, we're ready to take things to the next level. Together, we can offer you more resources, amazing technology, and even more career opportunities – empowering you to work how you want and truly love what you do.

Thank you for being the heart and soul of this extraordinary community. We've accomplished so much together, and the best is yet to come!In the spirit of this incredible community, let's keep building!

Cindy Trice, DVM
