Old & Unwanted Animal Sanctuary of S W Montana
Organized by: C Matt Hurley
Have you ever browsed Craigslist and wished you could give all the pets that are being betrayed by their owners a home? Have you ever gone to an animal shelter and felt sick to your stomach for all the sweet, old animals that will die in their kennels? Well I do, and I'm trying to do something about it.
The ultimate goal is to aquire 10-20 remote acres in/near Gallatin County, Montana to provide a safe home for as many of our least fortunate animal friends as possible. The needs of the community would dictate that it would be a mostly dog facility, but ideally all animals would be welcome. Unfortunately, the current real estate boom, influx of people and old fashioned greed make this dream in this location financially impossible for me.
I believe that the needs of these friends would be best met without interference from the complications of incorperation, but also realize this is likely unrealistic. I am asking for help in the form of council, land and/or money to be applied towards my goal. In the meantime I buy lottery tickets twice a week.
It won't be easy, but it will be awesome!
