well...... since this is pretty much 15 years away then i dont even think its worth planning this far ahead!! yeah sure you can have hopes for the future, but nothing ever goes as well as first planned! i wanted to be a zookeeper, im at the end of my first year of college and i dont want to be a zoo keeper any more, i wanted to work with dogs, now i dont.... its silly planning out your life at 16!! just take it as it comes, if it happens, then i happens!!
BTW: do you keep them as pets?? you may find you change your mind?
there are always unwanted res hanging around! if your really want to start a "sanctuary" you need to have a great love of the animal!! other wise you probably wont be dedicated enough!! go to a rescue and adopt one if you want to get started! just do your research, (im sure there are loads of books around!) and all shall be good in the end!
oh yes! i may be wierd... but this wierdo comes with new, improved Live Journal
