    Hi everyone, I've been a member for a long time but I can't recall the last time I posted here. I don't visit very often. I have two rescue buns, Parker and Hervé, both were found outside (two different cases), and one rescue rat, Pinkerton, who he and his brother came to me by way of a small miraculous coincidence while walking down the street one day. Just a chance encounter whereby I adopted two rats.

    So a looooong time ago I ran a rodent rescue and I was pretty passionate about it. Last year, I wrote a set of articles on how to start an animal rescue, and I'm considering repackaging them into a book. So I was wondering if any people who rescue, or started a rescue, read books and how-to articles when they decided to do so? And what kind of information were they looking for?

    The articles, for now (I will be taking them down soon!) are here:

    even though it's highly unlikely that I'd ever be able to afford to do rescue work, I would welcome a book about it.
    I think it would help me to choose the better run rescues, as I do support rescues when I can, and since my funds are so limited, I prefer to only support those that are run well and don't waste the donors money.
    so I think you may have a broader audience for this book, and you may want to include rescue supporters in that audience ....?
