Ok, I have had this idea for awhile but I won't be able to act on it for a few years probably, because of where I am at in life right now, BUT I am wondering if anyone has heard of this type of rescue work and the more I learn now the better of I'll be: What I want to do is provide a rescue for dogs and cats whose owners have to be placed/moved to nursing homes or assisted living and they can't take their pets with them. And for family members to take pets to where the owner has passed away and no one else can or wants the pet. I've heard of so many sad stories where these poor people put their pet down or have to send them to an animal shelter which may or may not be a "kill" shelter and the owners never know what happens to them. I would like to have a rescue specifically for these pets. Does that sound dumb? This way, these people will know there pet will be well taken care of and if they are adopted by a loving family they will be able to find that out and maybe even get pictures of their pet with the new family. Would that be possible or just a pipe dream? I'd like to know what everyone else thinks. I know next to nothing about operating a rescue; of course I could limit the number which I probably would have to do....being a family with jobs and young kids. That will all just have to work out. Look forward to hearing thoughts.
