I think this is funny... I use rescueme.org as one of the websites where I list the chinchillas that are available at the rescue. I never list my own pedigreed chins, because, hello, they're not rescues, and I wouldn't abuse rescue-geared websites like that.
Well, I listed the babies on there. They're technically rescues, as they're not pedigreed chins, and they are breeder cast offs. Someone didn't want them = rescue.
Got an email this morning that some visitor to rescueme flagged four of my ads as a "breeder selling animals." Really? Because they're babies, no doubt, but... has anyone heard of a dog rescue having, oh, I dunno.... puppies? Or a cat rescue having kittens? I mean, rescues do occasionally end up with younger animals. I guess because they're chinchillas, well, a chinchilla rescue could never just have a rescue baby available. But you know, it's ok for people to post puppies and kittens. Those clearly weren't bred for the intention of selling on a rescue site, nooooo.
Well, unless they get taken down, they'll stay up. I can't currently edit the ads (must be under review or something), so I can't even add to them that I didn't breed them (which I didn't). I don't know how they even flagged four, as I only have ads up for three young ones. I guess, you know, chinchilla rescue is all a scam, according to this flagger. Who clearly has no life. Darn, next, watch her flag a 2 year old, because I must have bred it and waited two years and THEN sold it. Ugh. Idiots.
And you know, this would be totally different if it was craigslist. Because people are flag-happy over there, but on craigslist, everything is hunky dory, but no on this site, omg! baby!!! MUST have been bred specifically to sell on a rescue site. Yep, nothing better to do.
