About our pack

Greetings and welcome to Misfit Manor!

Mgood covery 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.The Rescue Mama

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.  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 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.

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

  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

    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.
