Kelly Kluckpowski arrived at Misfit Manor after she was found wandering on a busy road at night. This friendly gal now spends her days hanging out at the Max aka the chicken coop, waiting for Quack Morris to arrive. (Get it? Saved by the Bell? Did we just date ourselves here?)
This quartet came to Misfit Manor through PSPCA's working cat program. This program is designed for cats that do not thrive well in normal households. They prefer minimal contact with humans and adjust well to barns, warehouses or other facilities that may need some pest management. These four have some form of physical disability or minor health flare-ups which made them less desirable to average working cat adopters. Not Misfit Manor, of course, we are happy to have them.

Phineas is one of two pot-bellied pigs that came to us from PSPCA. He lost both of his ears from a combination of frostbite and untreated injuries while being kenneled with dogs. Phineas now enjoys a life of luxury which includes his own private play yard, complete with a pool!
Olive is one of two pot-bellied pigs that arrived to us from PSPCA. Once emaciated and unable to move, Olive is now back to her ideal weight and learning to trust people. She enjoys going for walks and making nests.
Named after the Saved by the Bell character, A.C. Slater is not as tough as he looks. In fact, he’s quite a softy at heart. This handsome fella arrived at Misfit Manor after he was found abandoned in an empty lot in Philadelphia. He can now be found at the ranch hanging with the hens and crowing at airplanes.
We don’t know a lot about Prudence’s history as she was abandoned in a cat carrier outside of a veterinarian’s office. However, we know her future has been pretty bright since. A front declaw, this senior gal has been responding well to medication for hyperthyroidism and has really come out of her shell since arriving at the manor. She spends her days napping in her various beds and bossing the other cats around.
Once a hired mouse-catcher for a Philadelphia restaurant, the Block Captain found himself cast aside when he became too old to do his “job.” While he is now missing all of his teeth and has mobility issues, the Block Captain still manages to get around and speak his mind. His grumpy face has made him a favorite among Misfit Manor supporters. Block Captain enjoys napping, eating canned food and getting his “steps” in around the house.
Violet arrived at Misfit Manor with her partner Quack Morris after they were surrendered to a Philadelphia shelter. Sadly, Quack crossed the rainbow bridge in August of 2019. The loss was difficult for Violet but she has taken solace with the other ducks. She can usually be found sun bathing, swimming or foraging for bugs.
The most inquisitive of the hens, Jessie Spollo is the first to introduce herself to all new residents and guests of Misfit Manor. Jessie was found as a stray running the streets of Philadelphia. She enjoys inspecting new areas, foraging for bugs and chasing roosters.
Full of personality, Muscleman quickly became a fan favorite when he arrived at Misfit Manor. He was one of over 1,000 baby chicks seized by the PSPCA in September of 2018. No longer a baby, Muscleman spends his days hanging out with his best friend Olive the pig and fellow rescued rooster, Tony Squawk.
From the same flock of 1,000 cornish chicks rescued by the PSPCA in September 2018 is Tony Squawk. When he was just a few weeks old, Tony developed an infection in his leg that is unfortunately, common for this breed of chicken. While the veterinarians were able to treat the infection they were unable to repair the damage that had been caused to his hock joint. Tony spent some time in a wheelchair while recovering but is now able to get around quite well with minimal use of one leg. Tony Squawk was named after Tony Hawk because he looks as those he’s riding an invisible skateboard when he’s foraging around the yard.
Wilford Halloween Brimley had a rough start for the first 7 years of his life. Seized from a backyard breeder, Wilford spent over a year in the shelter before being adopted. He then found him self back at the shelter a year later when he was picked up as a stray. A matted and ill mess, he arrived at Misfit Manor where it was discovered he needed nasal surgery in order to breathe properly.
Once a skittish and shy cat, Wilford has come out of his shell considerably since arriving at the ranch. He can now breathe through his nose, his digestion issues are under control and he’s learning to trust people. He enjoys playing with toys, watching birds and following the other resident cats around.
Found running through a park in North Philadelphia, Ophelia has quickly become one of the most popular misfits at the ranch. She enjoys interacting with people, digging in the dirt, eating snacks and starting trouble with the bigger animals. Ophelia earned the nickname “mosh pig” because she also loves running in circles, knocking things over and jumping off of whatever is in her way. Check out our Instagram page @misfit.manor for videos of Ophelia the Mosh Pig in action.
The Three Stooges - Larry, Moe and Curly, arrived at Misfit Manor in the Fall of 2018. They were part of the 1,000+ baby chicks seized by the PSPCA in a cruelty case and have been at the ranch since they were two weeks old. As Cornish Cross roosters they’re raised to grow really big, really fast and then ultimately slaughtered at 8 weeks old for human consumption. However, at Misfit Manor these buddies get to live out their lives, eating healthy food and getting lots of exercise.
Carlton and Quillary Banks arrived at Misfit Manor after a brief stay at a Philadelphia shelter. They were just a little ducklings when they arrived and spent the first few weeks in the nursery until they traded in their baby fuzz for feather. Since they spent time around humans at a very young age, they’re usually among the first to greet guests and are not shy about demanding snacks.
Staci, Rhonda, & Louise arrived at Misfit Manor in the Fall of 2018. They were part of the 1,000+ baby chicks seized by the PSPCA in a cruelty case and have been at the ranch since they were two weeks old. As Cornish Cross hens they’re raised to grow really big, really fast and then ultimately slaughtered at 8 weeks old for human consumption. However, at Misfit Manor these gals get to live out their lives, eating healthy food and getting lots of exercise.
Bill Smith and Aunt Vivian arrived at Misfit Manor as young ducks in the Spring of 2019 after they were surrendered to a shelter in Philadelphia. Since blossoming into adults these two have quickly established their leadership roles among the other ducks. They can be found swimming, foraging for bugs or looking around rather confused when they accidentally fly over the fence and can’t get back in.
