Interestingly, Curly of the Three Stooges was an animal lover and spent his free time finding homes for stray dogs.

I've said that there's nothing nobler in life than giving an animal a good, happy life.

Hi Bill,

Best of luck in an admirable undertaking! My dog is a rescue and I we will never have anything but in the future.

As for 501(c)3, in Wisconsin anyway (and I assume elsewhere), you can start by filing your articles of incorporate with the state with the intent to file your 501(c)3 with the feds. The state decision is usually faster and then allows you to operate as a 501(c)3 pending the review of your federal application. I think some law schools offer free consultation services for things like this, so you might see if you can find someone to review your completed 501(c)3 application before you submit it. You might find this site useful:

https://www.firstinspires.org/sites/...ng-a-501c3.pdf

For the website, you might look at Wix and Squarespace. Both of those are pretty user friendly.

I would also like to ask that you keep any cats you house inside or in an outdoor enclosure 100% of the time - and require that people that adopt a cat from you do the same. Cats kill an estimated 2.4 billion birds and 12 billion mammals in the US each year. Outdoor cats also transmit diseases to people and have shorter life expectancies than cats that are always kept inside.

Your doing a great deed. I live up here in North Georgia and theres several of these organizations that you could ask for advice. I believe you can also partner with a few.
I always loved the show on t.v. called Pitbulls & paroles.
Here is a list of a few:

As an animal loving family, I will also donate when up and running with some auctions here on net54. We have 5 loving dogs and I would adopt more if I could afford it. Two of our dogs we inherited when my mother-in-law passed away in April 2016. Even though they are a little difficult, we could Not put them in a shelter or find them a home where we would not know what happened to them. Dogs are truly mans best friend. Keep us up to date with everything.
Best of Luck!
Robert

We have a Rescue Dog which is a Blue Tick Beagle Schnauzer mix. This past summer a Treeing Walker Coon Hound was abandoned in front of our house, we took care of her, got her spaded and found her a home with my cousin .He can't thank me enough he loves her. The shelters here in NC are over crowded and some are kill. Picture of the Treeing Walker my cousin has a GPS tracker on her collar

We have six cats and three dogs. All from shelters. Actually one of the cats was right off the street. Real piece of work that one. All of the pets we have ever had have been rescues. First one was a greyhound from Florida.

I can't help with any of your immediate questions unfortunately, but once you start to need a network of contacts for places in the Northeast that help with placement let me know. I can hook you up pretty well.

"When a man loves cats, I am his friend and comrade, without further introduction." - Mark Twain

These two brothers came from a rescue, I have had them for 11 years.
Much good luck to you.
