Default RESCUING DOGS & CATS from georgia kill shelters--approved by leon

RESCUING DOGS AND CATS FROM GEORGIA KILL SHELTERS-APPROVED BY LEON

Hello and happy holidays to all Net54's and a big " thank you" to Leon who is allowing me to post this

Being retired for the past 2 years has given me lots of time to think what to do in the coming years. An animal lover with 2 dogs and 2 cats, I have come to realize that my calling is to save as many as I can from the kill shelters here in Atlanta . There are 100,000 euthanized each year in Atlanta and if I can save and find homes for some of these, it will make a difference in the lives of many families and of course , to the animals I save.

My goal is to acquire land in an outlying county, provide necessary shelter for the rescued animals, and find homes not just in the Atlanta area but in the non-kill states where people often adopt from the southern kill states. Never having done anything like this before, and feeling overwhelmed by the task ahead, I have contacted a similar organization in North Georgia and they have graciously offered to meet with me after the New Year and answer my 3 million questions as our interests and goals are similar.

While I realize that donations down the road will be necessary to continue, there are a few things I can think of that I need to do NOW in order to begin this venture. Anyone who is able to volunteer or know someone who can for the following is greatly appreciated.

1) Formation of a Ga. non profit 501c3 corporation

2) Website creation---

3) Business Plan--While I have many ideas and will be learning a lot more from my meeting next week, I have neither the experience ( nor the smarts!) in putting this in a presentable format. I imagine I would need a business plan to present down the road to potential big donors or to already existing organizations with whom one can work in getting the animals adopted.

If anyone is able to help, please contact me at forazzurri1@aol.com or my cell is 770-873-1181

It's a noble task, Bill. If I had all of the money in the world there would be no more euthanizing of unwanted pets. Good luck!!

Noble undertaking and a good cause. I was involved with a couple of rescues in California and not an easy task. My advice is to talk with some people who have successfully done this. You might want to talk with Donna Harrington of Furry Angel Foundation out of Rancho Mirage California on the logistics of fund raising and day to day operations. Another contact is Ron and Michelle Holt of Love Shack rescue. As a veterinarian, I have worked closely with both. One is a cocker spanial rescue and the other is an all breed rescue. You should probably also involve a veterinarian in your plans for at least advise and hopefully medical care and supplies.

My thoughts,

Ken McMillan DVM

If you talk to them, mention that you know me from the board. All wonderful people and good friends. You will probably get better info that way. Donna is a real sweetheart with the Furry Angel Foundation and Rob and Michelle are pretty special also.

All 4 of our dogs came straight off of the street, running loose and apparently unwanted, and all in poor condition (one was pregnant). They are all great dogs and are a part of our family now. I have always thought of approaching a billionaire with a plan just like Bills in this thread to see if they would like to change the world and make it a better place for our pets.
