to jiffy: i can see your point. however, to the person wanting to adopt the animal they see it like this. you got the animal with the sole intention of adopting it out. you chose to feed it, nurse it, house it, so on and so forth. nobody said you had to. that was your own decision.if a person adopts a reptile from you is it not a relief that you now have less coming out of your pocket? if it doesnt matter to you how much comes out of your pocket then why take in the animals? This is to say that I think a lot of people get in over their heads when it comes to running a shelter. now i have no problems paying an adoption fee as long as it is within reason. i agree with the previous poster about adoption fees for (example) redtails being $100 when he can go to the petstore and buy one for $80. a person that lists an adoption (piebald for instance) with a fee of $3500 is just going to get laughed at.

now maybe i say these things because i am an honest person. I dont feel the need to pay a (mandatory) adoption fee but rather a voluntary one based on how I feel towards the person. If i visit them and see them eating peanut butter sandwhiches while all of their animals have nice clean well heated and clean cages and all in good health then yes i will gladly give a decent donation. however, if i see them eating tbone steaks on fine china while watching a 56" HDTV with surround sound while the reptiles are living in their own excrement in dark tanks and no water, then i will not give a penny.
