I could not have said it better my self. I have heard many reasons over the years mostly having to do with money, money, money ie. it costs so much to open a rescue or we have vet and housing costs etc. We founded our rescue out of our own pocket we do not put animals up for adoption and we do not ask for donations of any kind. It is my unpopular view that if you are not able to afford running a rescue you should send any animal needing rescue to someone who can afford to run one. (oh and do it free of charge.) It seems to me that if you are making money with animals in anyway you are an animal dealer not a rescue. I am not trying to offend anyone, I do fully understand how much it costs in time and money to run a rescue but if it has scales like a snake, no legs like snake, and teeth like a snake it is probably a snake. Charging money for adoption is wrong.
