thinking about rescue and what it means

I am thinking this mornging about rescue and hoping for adoptions. My person coordinates the intake of cats & kittens for our group. It is so hard to tell people that we are not an open admission group who can take any cat or kitten that they find. Horror stories about community shelters have made people afraid to work with them. However, most community shelters are doing the best that they can with limited resources.

But just because you have found a kitten and don't want to keep it, why does it mean someone else has to get the kitten healthy and altered and vaccinated and adopted? The finder gets the 'feel good' that they have 'rescued an animal'. All of the work is done by and the expenses are born by the rescue group.

Please take the responsibility of your actions. If you find a wallet do you hand it off to someone else to find the owner? I am just thinking that if you want a rescue group to help you it would be nice if you helped them too. Please adopt and support your local shelters and rescue organizations.
