I just want to say that people who take their personal time and love and pour it into these animals who have been abandoned and overlooked are much needed! I think that they should be able to charge as much as they think is necessary as they are their animals and I'm sure have built up some sort of attachment. How much would you charge to let go of an animal that you have nursed back to health and have bonded with? I realize that they are doing it for the good of the animal and to find them a home, that's their mission- AND IT'S A GREAT SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITIES. I know very few people who have the resources to run a rehab facility for free, so by utilizing an adoption fee they are being compensated for caring for your animal and rehabing it to the point that it's adoptable. As far as shipping, some places do ship, but I personally cringe whenever I have to get an animal shipped because let's face it, it's hard on the animals and there are risks. So I understand that they don't want to ship they just put all that effort into getting the animal rehabed!

Anyway...just wanted to say thanks to all those rescuers out there!
