"I'm not in rescue to help the *people*. I'm in rescue to help the **animals**. But don't worry, I don't TELL the people that I think they're idjits. "

Doc, let me see if I can help you out on this because I don't think you really mean what you are saying, I think you may be caught up in discussion.

This forum is basically for pet owners and the business that carter to them. Many of the pet owners reading this may find themselves surrendering their reptiles sooner rather than later because of recently passed legislation at their state level or, God forbid, pending legislation at the federal level. Calling people idjits because they can no longer afford to care for their pets or take their pets cross state lines when they move won't sit well on this board.

Furthermore, you can never separate the animal from the "people", please take the time to see their dilemma, sometimes it will break your heart, other times what you find may not be what you originally thought and what happens is that you have not only helped the animal, but you see how you have helped a person. It is also the gift of rescue, once you can help the animals AND the people then you can have your "been-there-done-that-shirt" back.
