As far as pets go, my girlfriend and I have 3 dogs and 5 cats. Of these 2 dogs and 3 cats are rescues. I think if ones able to care for the animals rescued than it is a very good thing. Our animals are truly spoiled.
As to rescuing larger animals, such as horses, donkeys and the like, you need a bit of property, proper housing and a good knowledge of how to care for these animals. Not to mention the extra money and time that it takes to properly care for them.
Kindest wishes, Dave
Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~
One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them
