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.






Please email or call for info if you plan to attend.



Hours:  10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.


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.
