About our pack

Greetings and welcome to The Rescue Mama!

Mgood covery name is Nancy.  I am an artist and full time “rescue mom”.    I live in a small town in Kentucky in a really old home that we named “Misfit Manor”.  I work out of my home to support my large family of rescued pets.  I support my family by selling my art and by running four vacation rental properties adjacent to my home.

I have a passion for “rescuing” all things…not just animals…old furniture, overgrown gardens and my really old home.  I can find beauty in anything and believe that if we open our hearts and minds the difference between “what we see” and “what might be”…is actually a very fine line.The Rescue Mama

Every pet that lives with me is here because they were just a little harder to adopt out than your average pet; sometimes for health reasons and sometimes for behavior reasons.  I abhor the notion that pets coming from shelters are damaged goods…that they “must be at the shelter for a reason”.  The majority of animals in shelters make delightful additions to any family.  Some of them just need a little patience.doggy kisses

I believe that each one of us is put here to walk a very unique path…it is the path that is meant to rub the rough edges off of us as we grow emotionally and spiritually.  For me…that path is a fairly solitary life with animals and my projects.  I do my best to avoid the chaos and drama that societal expectations put on us.

I write blog updates about life with animals, my art and rescue projects and whatever seems to be making my mind tick at any given time

I welcome anyone to comment and share on this blog but only ask that you keep all your comments in a spirit of kindness and generosity that a blog about rescued animals deserves.

If you find our site valuable please consider subscribing to my blog and/or following me on  Facebook or Pinterest and sharing my website with your other pet loving friends.

Blessings from our pack to yours,

Nancy H.,  The Rescue Mama

  1. You’re a true blessing to all these animals. I myself rescue dogs who have been abandoned and mistreated. I have helped many to find homes or have kept them myself. I wish I could do more and on a larger scale. Im so thankful there are people like you. God bless you always! Kim

  3. Hi Nancy
    I just would like to say I really admire what you two are doing.
    I live in Thailand and here it is an utter disgrace to see the way most animals are treated.
    I have not found a spayed dog or cat neither have I ever seen a Thai buy dog food
    The dogs all wander in the street and are called soi dogs( street dogs)
    They are not injected and according to the Thai Government 50% of the dogs and cats carry rabies
    Food is what they can find in the streets and rice ,fish heads,chicken bones etc
    Here is one animal shelter in Pattaya run by a British Expat lady at her own expense
    I have just adopted two cats and the people cannot understand why I want them spayed but I need to wait till the one has her babies weaned
    I found a vet with great luck and have had them injected and dewormed etc.
    If you accidently run over a dog in the street it is your fault
    It is not only the dogs and cats,fighting cocks are illegal here but every person in this village has them and Sundays are fighting days with bets on the poor chickens
    Good luck for the future

  4. Hello my name is Brandi and i need help i have two male cats that i have to get rid of both of which i rescued. One of them i had to bottle feed and nurse him back to health. I don’t want to take them to the shelter nor do i want to put them outside can u please help me i want them to go to a good home but it seems nobody wants cats these days. Their names are Johnny and jimmy


    1. Hi Brandi. I am not sure where you are located but I would start with doing a search on rescues in your area and asking them to take in the cats. There are also a lot of Facebook groups for local areas for helping to re-home pets. In my county people post in the Facebook yard sale sites and pet sites. Hope that helps.
