At the risk of sounding snarky, I have a hard time taking this seriously when you can't properly spell handicapped. I would be hesitant to donate to your group without some further showing of legitimacy, but that's just me

I was just thinking that!! And the pics don't look legit. If they are, I'm sorry.

There are government programs, grants, etc. that you can get for starting up a rescue. If I were you, I would establish myself as a rescue organization with government resources, so that people know you're legit :)

I'm confused. Didn't you just list a ton of tack for sale? Why are you asking for more if you just put a bunch up for sale on the 20th?
