Rescue postings - considerations before replying to threads
 
Guys I would like to ask that if you are not offering to take in a hedgehog, offering contact information to a rescue that you know is in the area, or in some way offering to help, please reconsider before posting to threads in the rescue section.

I have had numerous emails, PMs, and reports made to threads in this section lately. Some are from people who are trying to help; some are from people who have posted here. It is very frustrating to open a thread and have to weed through the I would love to take him in, but I dont have room/Im too far away, etc, or the Im sorry you have to do this. These types of postings are not helping the hedgehog find a home. In fact it can cause harm. Some threads are started here with hedgehogs that do not immediately need a new home, but situations can change quickly and that change in information can be easily overlooked by people who can help if there are a lot of extra posts.

Please, before posting to a rescue ad or even the for sale ads, ask yourself if your post is helping the hedgehog.

Thank you Kalandra. Hopefully this will help keep the classifieds on topic and make them more easy to follow.
