Should I keep rescuing?

Here is what I do, I rescue cats and dogs and try and find them homes along with breeding my very own silver labs and chocollate labs. I’m proud of what I do and I no many people don’t like breeding kennels but I save dogs too. I want to know what you think how could I make my kennel better?. My indoor part of my kennel are 7ft across and 8 ft long and 6 feet high, the outdoor kennels are 12 ft across and 10 ft long and 6 feet high with a tin roof over them so snow and rain stay out. The are cement kennels, the indoor kennels are full of hay. We run our dogs twice a day with the golf cart, and have my brothers and sister come over a lot to play with them. My cat barn is a 40 feet across and 15 feet high building. with 2 cat doors cut into it. Both buildings are heated and air conditioned. And it has carpet in it, and one corner is fild with hay. We have 6 extra large kennels filled with hay.

Well what shoud I do? Should I keep rescuing?

Answer #1

Do you adopt out the rescues or sell them?

Answer #2

I think you should keep rescuing. I personally think it’s great what you do for animals. I’d like to help animals in some way when I’m older cause I’m a huge animal lover. But you do what’s best for you.

Answer #3

So…on one hand you are a breeder…adding to the overpopulation of animals…

on the other hand… you rescue the very animals that you help to overpopulate…

I say…get out of breeding and focus on rescue. Spay/neuter all the animals and continue your good work.

Actually, I must ask…do you s/n the rescues BEFORE you adopt them out?

Answer #4

As long as you are able to feed, house, and vet all these animals…then I say go for it!! I want to thank you for doing it!! :)


Answer #5

Well all cats and dogs I rescue get spayed and neuterd before they go to new home and they get all there shots. They also I check each animal I sell twice a year. They must be indoors only and they have a sell back contract, they must sell them back to me if they dont want or cant keep. Even my puppies I breed have a spay and neuterd contract they must be fixed before 1yr old. or I get return of the dog. I love all my animals!! I love what I do! Also just got a call a lady is dropping off a short haired white cat with one blue eye and one green. And he is a male! Cant wait to meet him tomarro.

Answer #6

wow first of all I think that is relay cool of you, and I wish that I had the money and recources to do the same thing I aplaud you , and yes you should keep it up if it makes you happy


Answer #7

Well I love animals and I make great moneyy 23$ an hour and my boyfriend 26.25$ an hour. And we always try and do the best fo our pets we feed dimond dog food one of the top dog food and mix rice for a healthy stomoch. And our cats get fed 9 lifes caned cat food, and meow mix. I love doing what I do. I love having puppies be born and knowing that im saving the lifes of animals. I have 30 kennels for dogs and a no climb cat fence all over my yard so none can get out. Lets just say we have no mice. Haha I also work on training feral cats, I have fixed 4 of them…I gave 2 of them to my aunt and 1 to a lady as a kids cat, and the other to my mom, they think they are awesome cats.

Answer #8

I only charge 50$ per cat and100$ per dog to make sure they aint just going to leave them some wheres. I never have problems getting rid of them. If I could give them free I would but fixing/vet bills/ food is ery excpensive. I pay over 2000$ a month
