Greetings and welcome to The Rescue Mama!
My 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.
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.
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.
Blessings from our pack to yours,
Nancy H., The Rescue Mama
