well sometimes the rehoming fee includes the cages, food and toys and stuff like that and then i could understand because that stuff is costly and could easily be sold separatly for way more money but its best the bird/other pet keep what its familiar with.
what i dont get is that people actually think a re homing fee will automatically insure that the pet goes to a good home.
do sociopaths not also have money LMAO ... just cause someone can pay money for a pet doesnt mean they will love it. ive seen people spend $3,000 on a bird, $1000 on a cage and hundreds more on supplies and still literally starve, beat and injure the bird ...evil lurks everywhere ... and money is no deterrant.
if i ever had to ..god forbid... get rid of my birds or my pets, i would not charge a rehoming fee, i would gladly give them with all thier belongings to a good home, but i would interview and do a home visit and do everything in my power to make sure they went to a GOOD home, not just someone who is willing to pay some money.
