Hey y'all! I'm a (primarily) vegan from central Wisconsin. I love love LOVE animals and would someday love to have my own animal sanctuary where rescued animals from farms and other abusive situations could live out their lives in peace and safety. I also enjoy oil painting and gardening.

I know what you mean, especially with all of the emphasis on brats and cheese curds around here. I'm not a native of Wisconsin, but I've lived out here for over 20 years, the longest anywhere.

Hello and welcome.<br><br>
I also love animals and wish that they could enjoy peaceful and happy lives.<br><br>
Your dream of having an animal sanctuary is about the best job in the world. I wish you luck and hope that some day it comes true.

I know! I have no idea where I'd even begin with it. There are so many farm around where I live, and driving by I just dream about rescuing all the animals. And educating the "owners" that it doesn't have to be this way.<br><br>
Today I was watching youtube videos about adopted pigs. For the last ten years, I've wanted to adopt a pig in the worst way. But I won't buy a "breed to be sold as a pet" animal, so I really don't know how to go about this. Or if I even could legally have one where I live. A girl can dream... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>

I don't know where you live. However you could start by collecting information from the local council, pet shelters and posting on various forums.<br>
I'm sure that there are many people out there that will give you valuable information on how to getting started.
