    The Unwanted, the Abused and the Unloved

    I desperately want to open an animal sanctuary for all unwanted animals.  Dogs, cats, cows, horses, goats, sheep...any animal that needs a loving, temporary or permanent home.  I'd like to help place these animals into loving homes.  It makes me sad to think that...

    Don't Get Me Wrong

    I love pretty much every animal out there but there's no way I could open a shelter for them. It's so expensive, for starters.  We have two cats right now and every time they go to the vet it's amazing how much it costs!  I can't imagine paying that for 50 or 60...
