Dog sanctuary of my dreams!
I would like to start a dog sanctuary/kennel somewhere in Worcester County, MA. I would like to be able to have a comfortable and safe kennel to bring in revenue, in addition to a place for caring for lost or abandoned dogs. I would include features like web cam's in every pen (I have an IT background), agility play area's with lots of space to run, and a safe grooming area.
My background: I was born the youngest of 8 children in 7 years. We did not have a lot of money growing up so hand-me-downs were my style of clothing. After my brother (4 yrs) died in an accident my father starting drinking and all kinds of abuse in sewed. I started working at the Worcester Public Library when I was 13 yrs, and have been working ever since. I am now 48 yrs old and have spent most of my life working and in one type of therapy or another. I am very happy now and have recently, better late than never, set goals and dreams for my life. I have no spouse (haven't given up hope though), no children, but my 87 yr old Mother lives with me. I have two Golden Retrievers and a cat. My animals are one of the most important things in my life! One day I asked myself "if I could do anything, what would it be?", and I answered that I would work with animals (dogs specifically).
Where I am now: I started working towards my goal immediately. I have a new Company, 1 year old, called "Central Ma Poop Scoopers". I literally go to people's houses and pick up their dog poop, one time, weekly, or bi-weekly. This is not a glamorous job, but it is very good money for something that no one wants to do. I still work full time in IT and do my scooping on my own time. I wanted to show that dogs are the business I want to be in and start making extra money to fund my dream! I am a very long way from funding my sanctuary, so I decided to look for help elsewhere. I am willing to consider a partnership or some other kind of buy in situation.
Help me to help them!
