Nonprofit Rescue in Unionville Finds Animals a Forever Home

LaMancha Animal Rescue in Unionville is a sanctuary for abandoned, neglected, and abused animals, including cats, dogs, cows, and even the occasional emu, writes Katie Park for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The 45-acre animal shelter is also home to several aging racehorses saved from slaughterhouses. It’s also home to more unusual residents, like peacocks, which are less likely to find space in public shelters. The animals come from as far as Alaska and as close as Philadelphia.

For founders Dru Campbell and her husband Tom Quinn, the work is never-ending.

“It’s what the world of rescue is all about,” said Campbell. “No matter how many animals we save, there’s always another one.”

The rescue was started in 2001. Four years later, the couple registered it as a nonprofit. To fund its work, it largely relies on adoption fees and donations.

Now, more than 600 dogs from the shelter are adopted each year. This year, the nonprofit has found forever homes for 301 dogs, 28 cats, a pig, a goat, and two horses.

Campbell and Quinn receive help from a dedicated team of around 100 volunteers.
