I just cruised the adoption section. What did I see? Animals costing less retail with lower adoption fees from animals costing more retail with higher adoption fees. This appears in my mind to be a business then, not a rescue. As far as costs,well, a mouse is a mouse, a cricket a cricket, veggies are veggies. It doesnt matter if the mouse is being eaten by a baby boa, or an adult cornsnake. Heres a better example. A cricket eaten by a normal leopard gecko the same size as an albino gecko. I dont see the logic behind offering animals with similar needs at different adoption rates which unfortunately appears to pattern around market value with the majority, if not all, the adoption adds I see.
