As some may know, areas of St Louis were hit by devastating flash floods recently. A lot of people lost their entire livelihoods, one of those being one of our very own MRC family members, @saleengrinch.
Shaun’s home was hit hard. He lost nearly everything on the lower floors and his car was written off. Other than around 20 animals they managed to save, Shaun has lost his entire reptile collection, including 50+ ball pythons, children’s pythons, several incubating clutches, racks, incubators and thermostats.
Just days before the flood hit, Shaun’s incubator had started seeing some movement, with a few more clutches of his season pipping. Unfortunately, he has lost more than just his breeders and pets; he has lost his future projects and a decade worth of work as well.
His losses are not limited to animals, as everything on his lower level was under the water line, including a washer, dryer, furnace, and hot water heater, plus general damage to the home. The flooding damage to the house was not covered by insurance as it has never flooded previously and was not built on a flood plain.
As many of us have seen, Shaun is a great friend and one of the most active and generous members of our community and he needs our help during this difficult time.
