You need to file forms with the Feds to receive a 501c(I may be wrong with the numbers it may be 503c) permit in order to be recognized for tax exemptions.You then need to contact your local governmemt about zoning and other ordinances. You can find out exactly what is needed by Googling “ an animal sanctuary” . You will also need to taken proper training on handling all sorts of animals in various needs and situations.Good luck

    You have no compassion and that only shows that you are ignorant. Animals are the only living things that will give humans unconditional love, not asking for anything in return but to be loved.

    you don’t know much and it shows, without animals there would be no human, so respect them like they where human. It’s the human that is filthy and useless on this planet, not animals. Thank you

    me and my girlfriend, we do that but with cats, vause in Montréal there are no dogs like that, we never see any, and if we did we would du the same thing. We love animals.

    You say humans over animals, that means, Breivik over animals/”filthy dogs”. wow..
    Clearly your ignorant & disturbed brain have forgotten, who “that thing” is, a:

    “Norwegian mass murderer!”

    “That thing” is a human too, so the fact you would rather help him, than dogs, says all about you. Do you really hate animals that much?

    Anyway I’ll be happy to see you telling that to the victims parents, that you believe “that thing” is more important than animals.

    Too much.

    Go to your local petsmart and start working with that established rescue. Wew can only make a difference if we all work together. Each person trying to do their thing actaully cause more of a problem. We do have several rescue that are coming in with us so we can do more.

    Aside from the legal things (forms, taxes, money, business prep, bank accounts, things like that) you’ll need space… lots and lots of space. Plenty of kennels and food, a good supply of water and a good vet that you can rely on. You may also need foster homes for the dogs to live with for a while to see how the rescued animals react around people, kids, other animals. You migh also want to talk with some other rescues and ask them. They can give you more specifics and things about charges and adoption forms, vet bills, and all that.

    Good luck with it when/if you get one started. It’s a great thing you’d be doing. All of my animals are rescues and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    There is a lot involved. Legally, you have to apply for an IRS 501 (c) 3 number which is your identification for taxes. Then you have to apply for an EIN number, which is another form of ID. Those can take up to 6 months. On top of that, you have to raise money, and establish contacts with local shelters, which you can’t take dogs out if until you have your 501 (c)3. Next you need to find volunteers to be fosters and help you run the thing.. You have to establish find a vet to do all you medical, which will be expensive. on top of all that, you have to find your dogs, pay for food, rehabilitate them, and rehome them. It’s tough. What area do you live in?

    • Nevermore

    Money. A frend who’s a vet for discounted services. Be prepared to have LOTS of vet expenses with shots, health issues and neutering/spaying. You’ll need foster homes so problem dogs can be evaulated to see if they are adoptable. This is NOT easy, and it’s VERY expensive. You could be stuck with many dogs that you cannot place, so you’d need to be prepared that some may need to be put down.

    I cannot stress the money side of this enough….
