I think it is a good idea, as long as you are prepared for the very hard work and tedious time it may be before you can get it started! As long as you get a few other organizations and business helping you out, it should work out all right.
All the best of luck to you and I hope that your T.E.A.R.S (once going) helps lots of sick and abused animals.
Talkie Talkie......No More Talkie!
Of course I'm out of my mind....Its dark and scary in there!
