.... Which Goose? By my count there are at least three of us.
But I've decided I don't mind. It just makes it trickier for Aikens' IT person to figure out who is saying what.

I know y'all aren't taking this serious but I am no hard feelings though. I completely get it that you don't believe me in this.. It takes a lot of work and money to even try to start out an animal shelter. I not only need money to buy land and build a shelter or find land with that already on it but costs in start ups getting all the essentials together ect.. But if I at least get one person to notice my post on here then I know theres a chance itll get around to hopefully someone willing to help out..

Au contraire. I am sure it's expensive, and a lot of work.
I'm trying to figure why you think it's worth doing.

I've always wanted to help animals. There's too many abused dogs and cats and neglected animals in the world and I would love to give them a 2nd chance if I'm able. We saved a chihuahua which was abused to the point it couldn't eat without throwing up and it's been 2 years and the vet said he's in perfect condition now! He eats everything, getting used to people being around without freaking out and has more energy then you can imagined just bc we cared. And I want to give any animal I can that chance too and to make a family happy with a new member.

Pups and cats can survive outside in any kind of weather. God also gave them fangs and claws for hunting so they won't starve.

In this economic downtime I am seeing an increasing number of people on the streets. I've begun wondering where they go for shelter. I did a web search, and could not find a homeless PEOPLE shelter within 35 miles of Loudon.

The nearest one east is KARM in north Knoxville.
The nearest one west is BOLRM in Crossville.
The nearest one south is in Cleveland.
To the north I could not find one at all on this side of the Kentucky line.

Let me know when you decide to build a "shelter" I would care about. In the meantime look up the definition of "HUMANitarian".

I'm not trying to be cruel. I'm just telling you how I see it.

Funny thing about people though even the homeless live better then the animals I've seen that are abused beaten left for dead on a side of the road and starved to death by their own owners! I've seen a dog literally chained up with bones showing all over his body that the owners left him when they moved! CHAINED UP! How can a dog expect to survive and get food if it can't even leave the yard? They can't! Sry for being hostile bout this but people don't get chained up and left for dead I saw a homeless guy but 4 bags of groceries just from begging on the street. I will argue about this till I die that humans ( even homeless) live better lives this a stray or beaten dog or cat. No dog deserves to be chained up with no water or food for days on end and no way expected to survive.

Who's reinventing the wheel? I'm just trying to give a damn like some people won't .. I wouldn't expect everyone to believe what I believe in an no I'm not wasting time and energy.. I'm actually making a difference in not only an animals life but what about those people that want a dog but can't afford 500 at the pet store?! Those dogs aren't even actually trained obedience but yet they charge an arm and a leg for them as puppies so the family can hate the dog bc it won't mind them? I think my energy is well spent since no one else will care

Not to mention that some of us love animals more than people. And people have a voice and will usually demand what they want!

If you see an animal abused or starving your first responsibility is to report it to the local animal shelter or authorities. There are penalties now for animal cruelty. Your desire to do something is admirable and there are many rescue groups out there you can work with to get involved. Get a support group that way then move up from there with the help of others who have the same passion for animals you have.
If you remain committed and work hard others will support you in fulfilling your dream.

Thank you but I'd like to get a rescue going on my own that's why I'm needing donations an that's why I'm trying to get an animal shelter started bc there are no "no kill" shelters here where I live there hours away from me and I want to have one close to this area.. If someone sees a dog that's in trouble I would rather them call me then call animal control bc the pounds and shelters around here give animals three days before killing them to make more room.. I can't have that! Thank you for your support and incouraging words but I need to do this and I thank you again for not downing my dream to help animals!

You say you want tori this "on your own." Asking for donations so you can to this full tome says you you are also asking for other to donate the money for all of your personal needs and living expenses. You sound very sincere, and if you are you are also expecting a lot of people to be very gullible to send you money.
If you really want to help animals you will get a job and use what money and time you have left after providing for yourself to help those places that are already up and running.
Do you realize howmuchland and how many workers and how much money you would need to provide for ALL the animalsonce sword got out that you had s no kill shelter? There is no such thing as a 100% "no kill." That is what I was told by someone who works at our local shelter when I asked. He woad even those who claim to be no kill and work very hard to be that at some point they must humanely put down animals because they are overwhelmed with people bringing animals to them. For that reason they are probably always looking for good workers to help them save as many as possible. Consider getting s job and volunteering until you can afford to do more.
