In Reply to: Random Thought : About breeding burms posted by hades-raptor on April 21, 2003 at 16:58:50:
My Giant Rescue Network has a no breeding and no selling clause. It was this concern that started the network in 2000. At that time I saw a variety of so-called rescue groups breeding the animals they took in or placing animals without restrictions on reselling or breeding. This is an old debate but I would be ecstatic to see it revive and people becoming aware that not every outfit that dons a rescue name nor every person that cries rescue is actually doing much service to anyone but his or her self.
:I was just thinking. Everyone has been talking about the fact there is surplus of burms in rescues and so forth.
:And seeing VA Rescue's add in the classifides made me think. Most adoption places will not give burms out to breeders, and I highly reccomend that, but, how do you know FOR SURE that they will not be bred?
:You can fix (spay/nueter) rabbits, rodents, dogs, cats, and nearly every animal. Why should you not be able to fix a snake? Has it been done before? I there are some methods (as least I think) of proventing breeding but it isn't permenant.
:If you could fix rescue burms, or some babies that you sell to homes, would that not help the amount of burms being bred and scattered everywhere?
:I'm not saying that all burms should be fixed, or can be, but to prevent breeding when you adopt out a burm, or sell babies to people that plan to breed to futher decrease the amount of burms out there being bred.
:I dunno, I'm rambling.
