    I could do something to help all those poor animals i keep seeing on gumtree and other sites whoses owners cant keep them anymore for one reason or another. I always worry where they will end up. Especially when people just want them gone asap.
    I would love to have a mini animal santuary in my back garden but could never afford the upkeep of so many animals, especially vet bills... i wish money was no object sometimes:(

    I know how you feel, my OH says 'you can't save them all' but it doesn't stop it being so frustrating

    No reason why you can't, I say go for it, even if you don't raise a massive amount every bit adds to the pot, plus you'd be doing something you enjoy:)

    Nice idea, doing abit of fundraising. I hate those sites. Sometimes you just wish you could reach through the screen and try and slap the stupidity out of some people!:rolleyes:

    i understand that things happen and people are forced to give away their pets (it happened to us) but its when some of the ads say 'needs to be gone by weekend' you feel like they would happily give the animal to anyone who comes along just be rid of it... makes me mad:mad:

    Mine too, thing is he's right, its not the fact that we can't offer them a loving home, its whether the money/space/time stretch as far as the love

    yeah thats totally true here too yo know they would be loved but its not fair all round in the long run really....... but i hate when my OH is right lol :p

    I hate reading about the animals, i had a guy i replied to who was selling his terrier and she needed to go by the end of the day i asked why the day why cant you take the time to find her somewhere decent and why didnt you advertise her earlier if you really had to then i think i was on dogs trust website and there the little girl was i was happy that he didnt have her but sad that she ended up there (she was reserved within the week).
