My friend in rescue would scour the newspapers for 'free to good home' ads and would take as many of those puppies and kittens and adult cat and dogs into her rescue to re-home them (after spay and neuter and inoculations) as possible. She also charged those who wanted to adopt from her rescue a nominal fee believing that if they didn't have the money to pay for the adoption then they wouldn't have the money for good food and veterinary care (if needed).
She was right and I will never, ever forget all I learned from her. She is at the Bridge now surrounded by all of those furry souls that she ushered into a better life when here on earth. Please, never, ever put the value on a living, breathing being as FREE. All living beings have value. None is better than the rest or more valuable than the others.
