well you have to know a lot about dogs so you can place the right dog with the right family, some dogs quiet some active, if they are rescue dogs you also need to know what kind of life they have had before you get them ie, did they get hit, were they starved, did they bite someone, do they like kids, not as easy as it sounds.

    everyones advice about fostering is a great way to start! and surprisingly, if you look into any breed rescue group (join Groups and enroll to the ASPCA), you’ll get e mails daily about dogs needing foster homes. a good many will take care of the shots and the spay/neuter PLUS donate a small amount of funds to help care for the dog.
    i’m starting my own shelter here in TN and i contacted the TN Humane Society. the director sent me the links for the applications and for a 100.00 app fee, i’m all set. she also said it’s easier to work under the umbrella of an already established shelter.
    i’m registering as a shelter so i can legally have people go through an adoption process including a contract. i have 11 dogs here now. 6 are “mine”. the rest are dumped dogs or surrenders. be prepared to get the shots done ASAP so illnesses don’t get passed around. the last 3 surrenders were 320.00 for all first shots and flea/tick dips at the vets. paid for out of my pocket.
    i have about 3 acres and new kennels arriving every other week.
    let me know if there’s anything else i can do.
    where are you?

    If you are interested in rescuing a specific breed, I would suggest finding the national breed rescue group. You can find this by going to akc.org & searching under the breed. There you will find the national breed club & the rescue group associated with them. You can also search rescues by breed & location on Petfinder.org.

    There are many rescues out there who are in desperate need of help! Rescue efforts require an enormous amount of cash & having your own rescue will put you in the poorhouse FAST. Working with an existing organization is a much more effective & budget concious way to do your part.

    ok first thing u need to know is of other Dog kennels so u can kina learn from them and become a succesful company that rescues many dogs.this other guy on yahoo answers asked this question,how much would it cost to start a kennel to rescue dogs..heres the URL…you should really read this and the answers:

    ok another thing u need to know abt starting a dog kennel to rescue dogs….some other companies that are succesful…websites?go on and follow these and they’ll give u info.but be sure to make notes!!


    ok so there r some websites abt other companies and the last one is abt this girl that also wants to start a dog kennel rescue.maybe you two could pair up and work together to get some rescuing done for all around the world.

    ok and another thing u shud consider is doing this is a very hard job,so u might wanna gather up lots and lots of friends to do this.you are very brave and caring to be willing to help dogs and i totally agree with you.i live in califorina and i have recently made a dog kennel business and we even rented a home for the dogs with cages and everything.we started out with a couple of dogs and then we became a big business and now my parents even helped and put in some money.i come from a very rich family and im still loving and caring and proud to say i helped lots and lots of dogs.GOOD LUCK!!

    thats funny i was contemplating the same question on my way to work i dont really know for sure what it legally takes if anything but i think the easiest way to find out would be through the RSPCA or humane society good luck

    First off you need a lot of money. Then you need to buy all of the supplies (food, water, toys, etc.) after the building is built. It is hard, but worth the money and time.

    First, it’s “Kennel”.

    I suggest instead of starting a non-profit rescue, contact CURRENT rescues and FOSTER.

    It sounds to me like you’re set up to be an ideal foster “parent”, and too ill equipt for actual rescue.

    Your heart is in the right place for SURE, but you could do 100% just as much good fostering for an established rescue, then attempting to put one into use yourself.

    Lots and Lots and Lots of money.
    Rescue is very expensive and you will have vet bills and food bills and kennel expenses.
    There are always many dogs in need and never enough money to go around.

    if you haven’t already…

    possibly become a foster home for dogs with your local rescue..(or favorite breed rescue) You can then see if you can handle the types of dogs that come in..

    If you think you can handle it and have enough money find a group of people that want to help!

    Fostering is a great way and you will not have to keep with as much paperwork and you will not have to deal with as much astuff as the owner of the rescue has to..
    good luck

    Honestly all you need to do if you aren’t charging any money is take some dog care classes and do it. I have an enormous amount of respect for you undertaking something like this. The biggest problem you have is that some rescue dogs are scared and even violent towards other dogs. You may need to build separate sections to house dogs who are unable to socialize with other dogs.
