Hopeful Haven Equine Rescue Organization is a 501c3 nonprofit serving Erath and Henry regions of Vermillion Parish.

Horses can swim a mile. Cows (who knew?), five miles. But neither could outpace a hurricane surge 28 miles inland. Pastures were ravaged. Areas became watery graves. Hopeful Haven Equine Rescue provides hay and feed to keep animals alive. Winter rain and spring renewal may freshen salty grasses. For now, help is needed. All hay was destroyed in floods.
