Question on Horse Rescues
Before I even start this I want to say that I understand that not all horse rescues are the same. There is a horse rescue in Pa, won't mention the name, that buys their horses from kill lots at auctions. I applaud them for that but what I don't understand is that when they put the horses up for adoption after quarantine the put adoption fees on them like $1200, $1500, I have seen them as high as $1800. If I am wrong please correct me but it seems they are out to make as much money as possible! I know they pick those horses up for next to nothing. I understand that they have to get back what they put into the horse but it just seems to me that some of the adoption fees are ridiculous!!! They are supposed to be about saving horses, not making big profits on them. Am I wrong in thinking that they are charging too much for adoption fees?
