You know what? I hate that attitude from some animal people too.
Sure, there are a lot of irresponsible breeders out there who geniunely are doing the animal kingdon a disservice by breeding irresponsibly with no thought to health or genetics when there are needy animals out there that could be taking those homes instead. If you assume that everyone on earth who breeds is irresponsible and money driven, then yes, her attitude made a lot of sense.
But theres a hell of a lot of responsible breeders out there who are actually HELPING animals by breeding; improving the lines, improving the health of the species, producing fitter animals with longer lifespans. How can these people be faulted for that? If we were not allowed to breed anything then more rats would be dying from myco each day, living about a year on average and suffering from all sorts of health problems that we've managed to keep minimal or even obliterate completely via sensible informed breeding.
Sorry for commenting, it just burns me seeing rescue homes tarring all breeders with the same brush.

Don't apologize for commenting. I agree with you. I understand it but like I said in my post, I don't agree with it.
