When you talk about $40-$50 to offset the cost of animal care, I consider those nomimal fees. I will look long and hard at an animal having an adoption fee of that amount.
When the cost jumps appreciably, I can buy whatever I am looking for privately, and sadly, the "rescued" animal is out of the pic.
I don't have a problem with shipping cost either. I do know how much this all costs.I'm really suprised more rescues don't offer shipping if someone is willing to pay for it.
But don't have high priced "adoption fees", based on, as one poster mentioned, a sliding scale depending on the species.
Because no matter what you call yourself...fees based on species...the more desireable the species...you are a dealer.
Plain and simple. You rescue an animal, you work to cover SOME expenses. You cannot expect to cover all of them. Or you end up
with a lot of un-adopted animals.
All the posters on this thread, appear to have the best interest of the animals in mind.The fees are fair and nominal.
I noticed none of the high priced rescues responded.
