I want to open a Forever Farm for abandoned, homeless dogs. The Forever Farm would be a non-profit organization that help dogs recover from abuse, abandonment, or those that have never had a home.
First step is applying to become a non-profit organization, I would work with the National Council or Non-profits or Society of non-profits ensuring the application process was seamless. Once I secured a non-profit status, I would purchase the area/land for the farm. I would work with Veterinarian experts /colleges to ensure the farm was 100% complimentary to the dog’s needs.
Additionally, offer opportunities for the Veterinarian Students to gain hands on experience. The benefit of working with the students, many will be able to offer animal behavior understanding as well as any medical care that may be needed.
The farm would not be just for dogs, but also to people. The farm would offer people the chance to bond with the dogs, play/walk or just love them. People of all ages, backgrounds, or circumstances, even incarcerated individuals, having something or someone to love can have a huge impact on one’s life, perspective.
I am not entirely sure this would change the world per say, and I understand that was part of the question, I believe by giving love, offering love that is unconditional to dogs, kids or people that have not had that before changes hearts, and by changing hearts we can see a change in the world.
