This is only a Hypothetical Question before anyone thinks that this is what i'm planning on doing!!!! What would it take to open your own shelter? I was thinking about this, (especially after the frosty reception I got at my local shelter! Which isn't really that local! Over 30 miles away!), today as I was brushing down the horses (It's been beautiful weather and I couldn't stand to be indoors!!) I have 5 Acres of land and I have planning permission to put a house on some of it! My neighbours are only there in the summer as it's their holiday home! And the neighbours to the other side, are white, a bit smelly, have huge horns and produce milk! (Cows). I was just wondering what it would take?!! Any Ideas?!!
