Genevieve is about to make her debut. Huge thank you to John Vest for working so hard to finalize everything. Getting the windows tinted now. Our amazing cross country transporters Jennifer Jenrette Welsh and Kim Poleto Mengarelli wanted to gift us by getting our magnet signs to put on her. We will be posting public as soon as everything is done. And most of all, to our supporter who bought her, no words will ever convey our appreciation. We named this van in honor of your Mother and we will let Genevieve’s precious cargo show the reality of what this gift meant. Thank you to everyone who works so hard for our area shelter dogs.

About Us


How We're Helping

Hail Mary Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit animal rescue. "Together we make it Better!" It's not just a saying, it's our creed and philosophy. Hail Mary Rescue does NOT take "owner surrendered" pets or strays!! We save dogs from animal shelters, temporarily holding shelter pets awaiting transport to other areas, assist with transport costs, donate to other rescues faced with vet costs, and provide pet food to local human food banks. HMR is run by a board of directors with  over 60 years of combined animal rescue experience.


Our Work

All of our dogs for adoption  receive excellent vet care - vaccinations, worming, heartworm treatment (if necessary), and is spayed or neutered. Each dog is placed in a foster home where they become adoption-ready. Fosters make sure the dogs are well  socialized. They also work on crate and house training.


Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
