I saw a girl on a horse forum I'm on trying to raise $30,000 from donations so she could take back a horse she'd rehomed after he was found emaciated, headed for slaughter, then rescued by someone else.
Keep in mind he'd already been rescued. Now she wanted him back to make sure he was safe. She couldn't afford to keep him safe to begin with, how is she going to keep him safe now? And $30K??? Holy Hannah! He's better off where he is!
People sometimes need to use their heads, not their hearts when it comes to getting animals.
I get that you might get into a rough spot for a while, but to say you're never going plan to have the money for a vet appt ever? Yikes!
