Question by Stephanie: What does it to a dog ?
I am interested in opening a dog agency, sanctuary/rescue. What would be my first steps in doing this? What kind of education should I have to make sure it is successful? If you have an experience in this field please fill me in on what steps you took to achieve this, and what things you would have done differently ect. Thanks.

    What a wonderful thing to do. I don’t know where you are but if you were near me I would love to go in on it with you! When we get a house with more property to it I’m going to do the same type of thing.
    Anyway as everyone else said, you really need to check with you state and local laws. Where I am there are only a few dogs and cats allowed in a home unless you ave the proper certification.

    I don’t know if you are in USA, but if you are, here would be a good place to begin> http://www.petfinder.com/pet.cgi?action=4
    Just put in your own zip code to find the no-kill shelters in your state. I am sure that you will find help.. If you don’t find someone helpful from the first call, just keep on contacting others..You might even begin as a foster home, to learn the ‘business’ from existing shelters.

    You could check with your state on laws that pertain to opening a shelter. Many sates have law libraries that you can contact by email and ask questions. Checking in with other shelters, a humane society, animal hospital or your local ACO might be of some help to you as well. I’m not too sure on what exactly you would have to do. But, I do think it is a very nice thing for you to do. I wish you very much luck in getting going too.
