Since I am already taking care of my mom's 6 dogs it should actually be easier to take care of my grandpa's 7 dogs because only one has to be kept separate when the dogs I am taking care of now are in 3 groups. If the vet bills got to be to much I could put them on credit. I would also be getting pet insurance on the ones who would be most likely to get sick and on the rabbits and birds.

Wow! That is a lot. Do you know where all of these dogs are in their lifetimes? Are they all old, young, or a mixture of ages?

My mom took Pocur, Tocur and Poco to the vets to get neutered today. My guess on their ages are

George (Shar-Pei/APBT) - 9+ years
Isaiah (GSD/Akita) - 1-2 years
Pocur? (Chi) - 5-6 years
Tocur? (Chi) - 5-8 years
Poco (JRT mix) - 4 years
Tex (JRT mix) - 4 years
Forgot the name (Schnauzer/Poodle) - She is so fat that I can't tell how old she is except for that she is not young but also not old.

Well at least they aren't super young. The problem with all this is that yes it would be only one more dog but if you get a normal job that pays enough to afford a house and that amount of pets you are gonna be working all the time. I know the bunnies alone I have are soo much money and my moms one cat and one dog are outrageously expensive. That takes so much money. Plus utilities. Oy va. I just can't figure it in my head. If you work enough to be able to afford them all then you wont have the time to care for them but if you have the time, well then you wont have the money. Just please think this through.

I have figured out what I am spending and broke it down into monthly costs. My mom is paying for my cat's food because only 1 of the cats was my fault but I am switching them over to a whole pray diet so it will not cost very much to feed them. The rodent & bird feed/bedding costs will be raising since I am switching my cats to the new diet. I will also

Rabbits - $46
Rodents - $20
Fish - $9
Birds - $5
Reptiles - $0.50
Spiders - $0
Insects - $7
Toads - $0.25

It all comes out to $87.75

This is what I have planed out for time

Work - 8-10 hours
driving to and from work - 1 hour
Sleep - 6 hours
Feeding animals -1.5 hours
Feeding me - 1.5 hours
Walking dogs - 1.5 hours
Cleaning up after animals - 30 minutes
Me time - 2-4 hours

According to a website I was looking at if I worked 8 hour days at minimum wage I would make $1280 a month.

You may want to check with the town you would be moving to if you can even have that many pets legally... 7 dogs, 10 cats, however many birds, rodents, etc... it's a lot of animals, and many cities and towns have limits.

I am pretty sure that they have the same limits that the county I am living in now has. The limits are 4 dogs, 9 cats, the amount of farm animals depends on the property size and no limit on birds, reptiles and rodents. I should have put that 4 of the cats are going into a rescue when they have space so I will be down to 6 cats by the time I would be going up there. That is to many dogs but there are a lot of people up there that are over the limit on dogs so I don't think animal control really cares about it.
