    Hey everyone! I know this would be pretty hard to start, but I am willing to give it a try. I am planning on starting a nationwide pit bull rescue. My plan is to have all these awesome dogs in a foster home, instead of a shelter. Dogs in foster homes do better than dogs in cages for 21 hours a day or more obviously. They need to be loved, they need attention and they need to be cared for. But anyways I need to know if people would help me out with this and make this idea a reality.

    I guess the first thing that you would need to do is recruit foster homes and obtain your 501c3. Your 501c3 will allow you to solicit tax deductible donations and you can then create an account on petfinder (I believe they require 501c3 status).

    You will have to lay out a plan on how to evaluate dogs before bringing them into your system. You will also need to consider how much money you have available before accepting a dog - you need to have money put away in case a foster tears an ACL or something like that.

    Then you need to make decisions on what your policies will be. Will you adopt out to homes with unaltered animals? Will you adopt to homes that will bring a dog to the dog park? Will you adopt out to homes that will tether a dog? etc.

    I also suggest making a set of guidelines for euthanasia. What will you consider adoptable and what will you cull? This way decisions can be made quickly, effectively and without emotions involved.
