what can I say !
when I made a post requesting advice on re homing sites and stating that I would like to get back into bird keeping again and would prefer to give a home (regardless of whether the bird was free or not) which was in need of one,I was baraged with negative replies !
Then I find this thread !
Selling a rescue is well out of order a least in the circles I operate in.
Granted there might be out of pocket expences, but still.
As some might know I rescue quite a few exotic animals, true I chanrge a re home fee to cover for mentioned expences (which it rarely does), however the price charged is a general set one, meaning that one price covers all, and not what the market price of the animal is.
the charge is £40 which does not even come close to the original out lay.
also all pertential new homes are vetted and the new owner (for want of a better word) enters into a contract part of which staes that should circumstances change the animal is returned to me.
If I was to be seen selling any rescued or rehomed animal for profit I would expect to get strung up !
