What Would You Do ?

Many of the Movers and Shakers Including Presidents, Highly Successful Entrepreneurs, High Profile Celebrities decide once they have fulfilled their original ambitions set out to support a cause they believe in strongly. They set up trusts, campaign, or use their high profile for a specific cause they believe in, some may do it very publicly others in private. This is not a modern phenomenon and goes back as far as history itself.


Most of us ordinary mortals could not achieve the same lofty success, but if you could what would you like to devote the latter part of your life to.

As I wrote this post I thought about what I would like to do if I had that similar opportunity my own goal might be to do something to improve health care in the developing world or with Callie set up a large facility to rescue animals ( All kinds Dogs, Cats, Wildlife, and of course horses ) with sufficient funding to do a good job and employ specialists to help.


So what would you like to do if you had the opportunity ?

Save/help all the horses who are being unjustly and inhumanely rounded up by the BLM. If there were a way to get them to stop what they are doing and let the horses just be the way they always have been would be one of my main objectives. But greed and the uneducated uncaring public being what it is this is never going to happen.

Sounds very commendable!

Well, I'm already a volunteer with my local horse rescue, but I'd like to be able to donate large enough sums of money where the rescued horses and those volunteering there could have an even better quality of life with new facilities and equipment and more space. I'd pay all the utility bills, too. And I'd want to be able to make sure that the rescue didn't ever want for vet care, feed, training or any essentials all year and didn't have to struggle to find grants or money to provide for the rescued horses.

Great question! If money, time and space were of no objection then I would set up a top notch comprehensive cancer treatment center that also incorporated equine therapy. (and dogs too!) Allowing the patients of all ages and stages interactions with the animals.

That is a very big question to consider....i would like to do something for both animals and people. I think the homeless problem for both is unacceptable...I would have to think about this. More shelters for both types of homeless problems, a comprehensive birth conrol program for both problems, and putting the animals to use in comforting and providing companionship to the humans. Make it all work together....

I too would want a rescue operation with enough money to have all the help and things needed to keep the animals in good condition and happy. I have the land but not the money or help but maybe someday!! So many of the rescue operations that I see around here are on such a small budget that they barely can give the animals the care that they need. One place I visited was so bad that I felt the animals should be rescued from THERE!!!
