Greetings and welcome to Misfit Manor!
My name is Nancy. I am the founder of Misfit Manor… a peaceful, loving home for senior and handicap dogs. I am an artist and full time “rescue mom” to this beautiful pack of dogs. I live in a small town in Kentucky in an old, drafty but cherished historic home. Misfit Manor is a place of restoration and healing where dogs who have had a rough time come to be loved and restored for however much time they have left. I work out of my home to support my large family of Misfits by selling my art and running four vacation rental properties adjacent to my home.
I have a passion for “rescuing” all things…not just animals…I rescue old furniture, overgrown gardens and my really, 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 has unfortunately lived through some dark days and they carry scars both physically and emotionally. Most of them come in with serious neglect and health issues. Some of their stories are heart wrenching….some only live a short while after they arrive….but all are loved fiercely and get the best in nutrition and medical care while they are here. I take a holistic approach to caring for my Misfits utilizing both the best in traditional veterinary treatments as well as more non-traditional treatments such as acupuncture, laser therapies, vibration therapy, organic home cooked food and natural/eastern medicines and supplements.
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 my Misfits and my projects. It is tough to convince me to leave the Manor unless it is to do something for one of my Misfits. I am fortunate to have a nice group of dog loving friends who come to visit us regularly.
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,
