Welcome to Rock Run Animal Rescue!

Rock Run Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
Our mission is to care for animals in need by providing a supportive environment that
encourages physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. In caring for our animals, we utilize
holistic healing modalities in conjunction with contemporary veterinary care.
We offer permanent sanctuary for horses and other farm animals; here, they are safe…for life.

So much happened this week, here’s a glimpse at some of it!


We received four good responses, yes four, to our plea for a volunteer admin assistant–and one has already started volunteering!  Welcome Deeann!


Plans were firmed up on building a run-in shed and the first of many materials needed were ordered.   Bobby, another new volunteer, is building it for us.  Thank you Bobby!



Our girl Minnie must like the vets at Allen Road Veterinary Clinic, she was there again this week for a very sore eye.  We all love this girl so much and hope she feels better soon!




Attending the Fountain Festival in Newville wrapped up the week – what a fun day being part of our hometown community!






Released June 10, 2018 — Volunteer Job Descriptions

Rock Run is in the process of expanding and has specific volunteer leadership positions available.  The ways in which you can help the animals at the farm are endless.  View the descriptions on our Volunteer Page and respond to their call.








Did you know that Rock Run Animal Rescue has a sponsorship program?  We began our sponsorship program soon after we incorporated in 2012.  Many other animal rescue organizations offer some type of sponsorship, and it is a great way for animal-loving folks to help provide the care each animal needs.  In Rock Run’s case, the monthly sponsorship donations go into our general fund used primarily to feed the animals at the farm.  Hay for the horses costs close to $1,200 a month.  Compassion in Action allows those who are aware of the needs of voiceless animals to act on their compassion and personally do something about it.  Click here to see the benefits of sponsoring a resident of Rock Run.

Rock Run moved in September of 2016 from Shermans Dale to a farm in Newville!
We’ve been growing roots in our new community and growing in the number of residents too.
We are excited about both!
Rock Run continues to invite our neighbors to learn more about us
and the animals for whom we provide sanctuary.

Follow our journey on Facebook for updates as we continue to become part of the Newville community.
