Perhaps, it is just a different way of looking at a situation. If I paid that kind of money to place my cat there I would expect them to move heaven and earth to care for that cat for the rest of its life. That is, in fact, just what people are doing and I think it would be a breach of contract for someone who was paid 5 to 10 thousand to care for a cat for life, to adopt it out to someone else that has no contractual obligation to me.
As MC said, it is a sanctuary, not a shelter. If I had 5 to 10 thousand to place a cat there, I would definitely be flying there to see the place, getting references from others, vet references, etc., etc. Gary -----Original Message----- From: felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org [mailto:felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org] On Behalf Of Susan Hoffman Sent: Monday, August 24, 2009 8:05 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Urgent! FeLV cat -New Jersey- I need to find him a Sanctuary That's really the bottom line. Someone has to visit the place in person. If I paid that kind of money to surrender one of my cats, I would expect whoever took the money would move heaven and earth to find the cat a real home. I really expect that any remotely adoptable cat will at least be listed for adoption. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
