I have always dreamed of opening a "shelter" of sorts for abused women with or without children, but who have dearly loved pets that they can't and shouldn't part with.
When I escaped from my first husband, I had to leave many much loved critters behind, some of whom were butchered for food. My sweet piggy, Charlotte, for one, and our two young bottle baby goats, Bonnie and Clyde for two more.
It would be a large apartment or housing complex sitting on several acres of fenced land with barns and shelters, so their critters would have a safe haven too. I would supply the women, their kids and their animals with free housing and food/feed until they could get back on their feet and make it on their own.
Anyway, that's what my dream has always been...IF I had the money to start one up, that is!
