I can understand the frustration. I really can. There's a (newer) local rescue that just... Takes in every dog they see, and now they're just placing dogs in ANY home to get them out.

I understand the want to save them all. I really do. It's that want that gets people in trouble with returns and too many animals and et cetera and so forth.

Question, which I may have missed the answer to, is how much is she charging the adopter for each dog/cat? I know the rescues around here charge approximately $300+ for a dog. They are vaccinated & spayed/neutered when you adopt them and in good health.

I know the cost for an adoption would also stop some who are just doing it to try from those who truly want a family member to love. Just a thought.

Anywhere from $60-120. A $300 rescue around here would never get adopted. The shelters are in the same range. I've never really seen higher than $75, though the fancy small dogs are pushed higher. I know of a couple small dog rescues that go up in the hundreds. But I'm pretty sure that's due to the breed, not the cost of medical expenses.

I messaged her and the first thing she said was "I know it looks like I don't have my **** together. I have a lot going on." I think I upset her
