I believe there should be a mandatory license for NFP rescues. I think the application should be relatively inexpensive if not free as quality rescues are of assistance in a community and take quite a burden off animal control. But, they should be subject to inspection. From what I've learned the 501c3 is regulation of how the funds are utilized and allows for deductions to be written off for donations, but the rescues are not subject to any regulation on the treatment of the animals in their care.

I also think animal control should have certain guidelines as well. Mind you, they are two different approaches and a shelter has to take in all brought to them, so standards are different. But, a rescue should have at least some measure of responsibility and subject to inspection by an independent source.

JMHO and I'm sure others will have other opinions.
