While I have no issue with an attempt to rehabilitate and/or heal an animal, shouldn't the end result be to be able to place that animal once healed or rehabilitated.
Maybe others who have read the posts in regard to this are more polite than I am or just do not want to step forward and say what I am about to say here, but I can promise you I am not the only one thinking what I am about to post.
I think its appropriate to post this link in regard to similar behavior by others who have been observed showing the appearance of collecting animals.
I am aware that my posts are not terribly popular, but I am not on this forum to be popular. While it may be a wonderful thing for people in this forum to pull together and donate money to save a dog or transport it, the fact that the person that wanted this dog transported, could not afford to do it on her own. I would think the inability to financially provide the necessary transportation on her own, would have raised a BIG RED FLAG in regard to escalating the monthly expenses in regard to providing care for this and the other animals involved.
If you consider that your personal dog at the least would cost you $500-$1000 per year (which I think might be a low estimate), multiply this by 9. I think many will agree that $4500-$9000 per year is quite a chunk out of anyone's income. Not to mention other expenses like major surgeries and property maintenance and upkeep. I really think the $500-$1000 cost per year is really low so I did a quick Google search on the internet and I would encourage everyone to click on the link below and read this article on the cost of a dog. I think you will find it eye opening.
I do not expect you to agree with everything in the article just as I do not expect you to agree with everything I am stating in my post. Please scroll toward the bottom of the link to see the estimated costs of owning a dog.
