Let me take the ball out of my mouth so I can introduce myself......My name is Dakota and I love my ball. It's the one thing that has always been there for me even when times got "ruff". A lot of people look at a strong boy of my breed and think, "oh, well I know why he's in a rescue! It's because of his breed!" I'll tell you a secret though, I don't know what they're talking about! What is a breed and why is mine considered a bad one? All I know is that I love life! I wasn't always homeless. I had a home for a little while. I had a family with a mom, dad and a boy. I even had a cat sibling to spend time with. But that changed suddenly one day. This lady came and picked me and my stuff up and took me to LaMancha. She was really nice and even petted me while I looked out the back window of her car crying, as I watched my house disappear into the distance. I overheard the lady say my family put me on this website for free! She said she was afraid of what might happen to a handsome 2 year old like me. She kept telling me it wasn't my fault they were giving me away. They just didn't have the time or resources for me anymore. I did spend a lot of time alone in a tiny little crate while they were gone all day. You know what burns my biscuit the most? My family didn't even tell me I was leaving! So off I went to my temporary home of LaMancha Animal Rescue. The volunteers here are super nice and they say my "training" is going great...whatever that is. All I know is that I get snuggles, treats, and lots of love. Oh...and my favorite ball! Don't get me wrong, I like LaMancha very much, but I really want a home of my own- One with a warm bed, a lap to snuggle in and maybe a person to play ball with? Does your family have room for me? I don't take up that much space and I have a ton of love to give. But I can only be adopted on one condition....my ball comes too!

About LaMancha Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Welcome to LaMancha Animal Rescue located in Unionville, Pennsylvania. We are a privately funded 501c3 charity that was originally formed as an alternative to the slaughterhouse for ex-racehorses.


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.
