have you ever been, or ever considered being, a licensed animal/wildlife rehabilitator?
I watched a couple seasons of the show 'Bandit Patrol', and was mighty impressed with the work they do.
BOY, those people work constantly, and they sure have their hands full most of the time, as there are so many needing help, and limited care-giving facilities are available.
Looks very rewarding, but I know I'd be a basket case every time even ONE couldn't be saved...
There is land on each side of my land. On one side is farm land, no sale. The other side WAS for sale and
I did strongly consider it. It's about 15 acres or so and mostly clear. I have 8 acres. I considered buying the
15 acres and building a sanctuary for small dogs. The small dogs have been growing in popularity and even so,
unfortunately the puppy mills have too. That is why I detest breeders. There are many old and abused little
dogs that people do not want either because they are old, disabled, or some other reason. People tend to want
perfect pets. So I did consider buying the other property next to mine, building a nice building with a very
large fenced area. I would allow them to be adopted out but for the most part, it would be a place for the
ones no one wants.
It was just a thought and I think If I was younger and the thought, I would have done it.
