|i did and it didnt really matter to me. and yes school does mean alot. maybe not to you, but to other people yes it does. To my its my first priority and i wud never ever purposely have a child right now.
Andi dont believe you can make good money from rescuing, its a hard job and u cant do it all your life. I dont think u want to be like 45 and stil rescuing honestly. And its not even about jobs its about education and intelegence. I dont know what kind of school you have but here in Illinois no one would ever say that to a kid that wants to go to school. No child left behind?
I think u have a bit of surreal view on the world, SCHOOL IS VERY IMPORTANT. and saying that school is crap is just ignorant.
yeah 2 thousaned isnt enough
but thats not even full potential
thats working on MY time when I want too
so i could do it full time and do great if i wanted
i think ive got my life pretty much together
my childs going to have it better than most kids do out there. school doesnt mean crap anymore. at all.
they didnt teach me one god bless thing i needed to know for real life
they didnt care one single bit about me. infact last words from my principles mouth was i was w waste of their time. because i wasnt at school for 2 weeks. and when i tried to go back they said i was too far behind
and basically told me to give up
but OH WAIT when TAKS testing time rolled around they called me wanting me to come take the test? why/? because they would get MONEY from the gov for it
and better "school rateings"
marriage doesnt have anything to do with haveing a stable relationship at all
lots of kids grow up wiith divorced parents
First of all, I am very sorry that your school treated you that way. I can't believe they kicked you out for missing two weeks. You were sick, right? You had a doctor's note obviously, right?
How do you make money rescuing? What does your boyfriend do for work? How will you support your own household?
Why don't you want to get married?
|rescueing you can amke ALOT of money
factors depend on the type or breed of dog,how many rescues you do in a months time, age of the dog,shots already been done,spay/nueter etc. but there is required adoption fees that i get from adopters
also if someone wants to surrender an animal to me they have to pay a $50 fee up front (for already fixed/up to date on shots)
if the pet doesnt have shots,isnt fixed or up to date on vaccines its $75 to have me take them which goes to help cover the cost of shots and such. it cost me about $50-$80 to get all the vet work done for a pet that doesnt have vaccines and needs to be fixed.
and i charge a fee of $75-$200 when the animal is adopted. again it depends on ceratin factors
I'm sure I'll be attacked for saying this, but I don't think it's very endearing to brag about how much money you make doing animal rescue. I was under the impression that rescuing animals was done purely to make a difference, and that rescuers barely break even or even take losses. I know that I, for one, would rather adopt a dog from the pound and save it from certain death than put $200 in a teenager's hand who brags about going shopping almost every day. I guess it justs disgusts me a bit to think you're profiting from these poor dogs so much that you can go skipping off to the mall on almost a daily basis. This has really put me off getting an animal from a rescue. I think I'll go straight to a shelter next time.
|Maybe that makes me naive then. Like I said, I would personally much rather rescue an animal from a kill shelter and pay less money than hand a couple hundred dollars over to a teenager who's just going to run off to the mall. I didn't think that people would profit that much from selling abused and neglected animals. Oh, excuse me, "adopting them out". It sure sounds like selling to me, but meh. I don't think I've ever seen a rescue operator wearing designer labels or talking about shopping every other day.|
|Rescue workers in my area get $50 to go pick up a dog and they have 2 choices they can take the animal to the shelter or house it themselves and assume all expenses. I guess rescue is big money in other areas of the country.
I guess a rescue worker could have made a fortune after Katrina?
|I would have also assumed that Animal 'Rescue' was an act of giving. I know a cat rescue place where I got my cat and they take volunteers to come love their kitties. The 'adoption fee' is $60, but your cat comes neutered/spayed and shots. Plus they are marked. The lady who runs the place does not make any money. She does it because it is something she truly believes in and, essentially, has a No Kill shelter for cats who cannot find homes. She works full time at her day job and takes care of the animals afterwards.
Suzy, if you make money from this, I think you may have found a calling. However, ladies - true ladies - do not talk of money Least of all inheritence monies that someone else earned and they were gifted. Shhh.
| No, money isn't evil and having money doesn't make you a bad person, but BRAGGING about HAVING MONEY is NOT ATTRACTIVE. Maybe one day when you're grown and living in the real world, you'll understand.
Like I said before, I would much rather go to a kill shelter and save a dog and bring it to my own vet, then hand over a couple hundred dollars to a little girl holding a Prada bag.
