If you want to work at a normal job, you'd have to find somebody who can watch your animals for you while you work. I can't help you in that regard but I would like to steer you away from kennels, they'll be super expensive. If you have anybody you can trust, tell them you'll pay them. If they're street kids, they might even do it for free if they're able to fly a sign where you're at.

Another option is self employment. You got any crafts you're interested in? Things like wood working/whittling, painting, drawing, things of that nature. I've seen people on the street selling things they've made while making more of them

Third option: TwitchTV. Very long shot but might be worth looking into. You'd need a couple battery packs and an external microphone of some kind, maybe one of those cheapo pairs of earbuds with a mic on the wire. There's a guy called Hitch on there that used to do nothing but hitchhiking before the quarantine hit.

Sell stuff online. Get PayPal pos device and sell stuff. Get a car/van whatever. If you have too much stuff get a storage. Maybe use a dog walker. Work some where pet friendly. Gardening/ outside work.
Maybe get rid of the rats they're too cantankerous.
If you have a bunch of junk sell it.

Seasonal farm work, weed work (there are still decent jobs in cali), anything that lets you stay on property. Get an rv or a van thatll improve yr life a lot for seasonal work.

Independently owned pet shop?

I don’t there’d be a lot of money in that.

On the bright side you and your pets would have a place to chill/make some loot/network.

not to crush anyone's dreams here or anything but the only reason that guy (or any of the other 2-3 people doing travel stuff on twitch) is because of a really expensive cellular backpack setup (i was curious and looked into it) with a crazy special cell phone data plan.

That backpack isn't required, I know people who do IRL live streaming with their cell phones and battery packs. You DO need unlimited data though.

If I’m ever in your neck of the woods I can help with your pets im and avid animal lover. Also same as offer goes with the commune if you get that up and goin I’d be glad to help out with the dogs. I also want to start a rescue commune for dogs on ranch someday, but yeah money is hard to come by especially now. I will say if you start the rescue commune make sure you have plenty of supplies and food before bringing any dogs in. Maybe common sense but some people are quick to act and I’d hate for any dogs to suffer from a mistake like that. I wish you the best of luck and hope that your rescue can become a reality!

Not knowing land prices in OK, nor how much it costs to run a dog rescue...it seems like you'll need a significant of money. The only legit means of getting a lot of money quick is qualifying for grants and other financial aid through a community college. Good luck.

Most of us have been in this pickle once or twice and I sympathize, cause trying to grow roots with no or very little connections can be tough. Are you married to Tulsa Oklahoma? What I mean is that ain't exactly the mecca of squattable houses or cheap rooms to rent while you save up money. It might be worthwhile to look elsewhere short term that's got more options for cheap housing/work. What kinda jobs have you had in the past? Have you spent yer covid check? Depending on where you wanted to live while you were working 1200 bucks could go pretty far if you were interested in renting a room.

Land can be super cheap in OK, like $20-50/acre depending on where and how much you're buying. A well, permits, buildings, fencing, kennels, 501c3 cert, insurance ect... is what would make this a $200k+ endeavor, but hey, 21 is a great time to have goals and if you can secure the property it'll show investors/organizations you're serious. Might wanna get a few books on grant writing.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
