Many of these horses are perfectly sound, but simply too slow to continue racing. Some are injured, but can be healed to make suitable trail riding mounts, show horses, and three-day eventers.
Today LaMancha rescues and finds homes for not only horses but also dogs, cats, goats and the occasional exotic animal that requires more space or specialized knowledge than most SPCAs can offer.
LaMancha is a "no-kill" rescue. We currently have available for adoption many animals that are looking for a good home. Contact us to see if we have that special animal that you are looking for
LaMancha is the only federally recognized Karelian Bear Dog rescue.
Karelian Bear Dogs were originally bred in Russia and Finland to hunt bear. When Russia invaded Finland during World War II, many people killed their Karelian Bear Dogs so they would not be taken. They are considered a national treasure in Finland. They have been imported into this country recently, primarily to assist in eradicating nuisance bears from state and national parks.
Karelians are extremely intelligent, and very loyal. They make excellent companions and family dogs in the right environment. They must, however, have enough to keep them busy, and enough room to run. They are not a good choice for small yards or confined environments.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
