Default a horrible pet owner???

i feel so guilty...
i started out a single woman, with one dog, a german shepherd that i
rescued from bad breeders. she was starving, and chained up, she was only
13 weeks old. bad hips, unloved and uncared for, i took her to the vet,
loved her and made her mine. then i found out i was ill, and may never
conceive, so we (my shepherd and i) volunteered for the humane society,
and rescued a mountain pyrinese/lab retriever mix who was nearly broken
when we found him. well, that was almost a year ago, and we still have
him. then i got married, to a man who had one dog. and one cat. now we
have a chihuaua, and two more cats, rescued. am i horrible for not
getting rid of them once i have made them better?
i had a "kennel" license of sorts when i was volunteering for the humane
society, but i'm no longer a volunteer, what should i do?

Surrender, give away or sell all of the animals you can't nurture and/or
provide vet care for.

The way I read this, correct me if I'm wrong, you are worried about being
perceived as an animal collector?
or
you have more animals than you can legally keep?
Or you have more animals than you economically can keep?
Or you have more animals than you can physically keep?
Or your health issues are forcing you to get rid of them?
I'm sorry, but I can't wrap my brain around what is the problem here that
you are feeling guilty.

If you can provide them with love and the proper vet care, I don't see the
problem.

I feel the same as Cindy. As long as they are taken care of properly I
don't see an issue.

I have two dogs & 3 cats and as long as they are cared for I don't think
it's anyone's business but my own.
