|The mama looked into adopting me a new brother or sister. But she changed her mind, more than once, because of the outrageous "donations" that were required. Believe you me, she knows the expense that comes along with being a responsible pet owner, but I think this practice is detrimental for our fellow pups in desperate need of good homes.
Any thoughts? Is this practice legal?
The mama knows costs are incurred as some pups are sick, underfed, etc., but if a human is willing to take the risk of adopting a pet with an unknown past, why should they pay a "donation" that is at times as high as buying a brand new pup with a "clean slate"?
