Pet Rescue Startup Cost
Organized by: Imbri Jenkins
I've spent a long time dreaming about working with animals, and even longer of starting my own business. It wasn't until I adopted my dog Plato that I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Plato was a free puppy. His mother's owner just sat him and all his brothers and sisters outside a dollar general in a cardboard box. Since then, I've learned that nearly 47,000 puppies are born a day in the U.S., with kittens following closely behind. Most shelters I've visited can only afford the basics and can barely keep their facility clean, let alone comfy for the animals. I'm looking to save enough money to provide a temporary home and training ground for every animal that passes through my shelter, not just a cage.
