I want to create a place for me to get my pet fix. My hope is to have a place for people to love on animals from rescue shelters that will be housed at a building/community house for the city of Jacksonville residents to come and chill out at the same time. I want to welcome owners with their dogs and pets to come and hang out with others that don't have pets or cant have pets for some reason and want to go somewhere to love on a pet and pets can love on them. I want to bring rescue sheltered dogs, cats, horses, etc to this place for people to enjoy and take their minds off of themselves or their worries and have a little therapy of the good old fashioned pet love. My goal is to have these rescued shelter animals be adopted by the residents of the town if they are interested after they become friends with a pet. Its just a place for someone like me who currently rents a room and is not allowed to have pets. I would love to go to a place and get my cat/dog fix and not feel awkward asking a stranger can I love on your pet for a bit. I want to create a place for me to get my pet fix and now for everyone else as well. :) I am really wanting to take charge and be responsible for this type of place. And since I am very organized and responsible for myself and my words that wont be a problem for me to get all the details done with how it will all work out. I even have ideas like once the place is bought and paid for we can keep the necessary overhead bills by selling GOOD, ORGANIC, FUN, LOCAL AND UNIQUE items and (pet) (garden) food to ensure we always have food for the animals, electricity and the rest of the needs with a place like this. We can do fundraisers like date nights which would be fun or a Saturday of babysitting children with volunteers and having a blast with all the animals and that would be pretty easy in itself ;) And whether we build or buy which will it will be needed to have a large outdoor lot / property for the pets to have shelter and parking for the public. All those plans I want it be worked out along the way. I have many exciting and fun ideas. I am a person for change and keeping things interesting and don't want to stick to what has always been done. I hope that this plan of mine can be an example for a community hang out and help animals in need and it spreads through out the US and WORLD. One person/community can make a difference and be an example. I just wish you all could get in my head and see my dream. :)
