My name is Mary R Morvant, President of Hail Mary Rescue, a 501c3 non-profit Animal Rescue. We are located in the heart of Southeast Louisiana's Cajun Bayou Country. We are known to most area shelter managers, who call upon us to evaluate and rehab the neediest ones, assist with injured brought in, and donate supplies.
In 2014, I transformed my dog boarding facility, that I proudly operated since 2011, into our rescue's intake area, where we evaluate each dog that we commit to and ensure they are completely vetted, before matching them with one of our dedicated fosters. From there they go to forever homes here in Louisiana or to our 2 Northern Partners we have formed relationships with over the years.
Unfortunately, we have experienced flooding over the years, but recently our facility received major flooding. On May 12, 2021, the levees breached, and we took in several feet of water forcing us to evacuate with the dogs, for over 3 weeks, which interrupted their training and hopes for forever homes. This recent major flooding seems to be the result of the ongoing developments, of what was once green space. The development of subdivisions and businesses have strained our area and caused our rescue's property to be compromised.
While evacuated, we had to evaluate the situation, the risk of future flooding and come up with a plan. Our Board of Directors decided that we should buy land, that will be owned by Hail Mary Rescue in an area where flooding is extremely unlikely.
This sounds like a big feat, but if we had 200 donors donate $200 each, we would reach our dream quickly. Remember, these donations are all tax deductible, not to mention what a hero you would be for helping save shelter dogs. Of course, we realize many cannot afford to donate $200, but every dollar puts us that much closer to our own facility.
