well i agree with you on some things but first of all im shocked that anyone would ever use DHL ("delivers hours late" to ship after the track record they have. it isnt against the law to ship animals through overnight shipping companies provided you have a specific account. yes it is illegal to mail them through the post office but not through a shipping company.

second, what do you mean by "make a profit"? i thought we were discussing rescues not businesses. a rescue should not be trying to make a profit or even break even. a rescue should use the money out of their own pockets (not meaning money from contributions but from earning money at an actual job) and when someone comes and says "i want to adopt this animal" the response from the rescue should be "here is the animal. i have gotten it back into good health. please care for it as much as i have or more." no money needed or asked for. contributions if you accept them but to charge is just wrong. even if it is just to "help with the business". to some people all they want is to adopt the animal in question and that is it. they dont care about your business or the rest of the animals. all they want is to adopt that animal and give lots of time and attentuion to it...not your "business" (oh im sorry...rescue)
