    All I can offer is don't quit your day job to run a rescue...seriously; rescues are run 'non profit' as a general rule, so you will not be making a whole lot, and you will need to have a good group of supporters just to get you started, and hopefully to help you stay running, but most rescues are going to foot ALOT of the bills, and care of the animals they rescue, and when you rehome, you don't make nearly as much as you would, say, buying and training an 'unrescued' horse who is bred for a specific purpose.
    I agree with IS worth it (have rescued horses, dogs, and cats over the years), but it is NOT a huge money maker, nor will it support will need other money coming in, either from a husband, or from you or both!

    Yes they fund raise and they get grants. Your best place to start looking for grants is your local Community Foundation, they are either by town or by county.

    It is a worth goal, but not one that you will make any money from, vets bills alone would be killer. If I were you, I would be meeting all the vets you can now and finding out if you could do a deal with them, if they have their own horses, could you care for them, or provide hay or anything that would reduce their fees?

    I'd been hoping to adopt, with moderate experience with horses that I had, I thought it would be easy and thought I could do it. Luckily I decided to get some help asking the questions and making the choices. I have a spot at a beautiful, family oriented boarding facility and now I need the horse. I know better than to jump into it now, and I am waiting for the right one. I also have a great friend who lets me spend time with her horses until I get one. Running a rescue sounds sweet, I'd love to do that. I would recommend someone volunteer at one first so they can see it first hand.
