Hello đź‘‹,
Strange question here. I dream of setting up an animal sanctuary, for dogs, cats and other companion animals, but also (perhaps predominantly) for farm animals that I would rescue. However, one of the main ways in which I may rescue and save these animals is through buying them off of the farmers. I get that that money could then go to contribute to animal cruelty, and that the farmers could use that money to pay for more animals, but would it be ethical to do this, if it meant saving at least some animals, as opposed to none, if the others that they would buy would get into the same situation anyway?
Also would it be within my rights to request that the farmers not use the money to buy more animals, or on other cruel practices?
