On one hand, it helps get animals out of shelters faster. But are they going to people who can afford their care and want to keep a pet for life, something which an adoption fee helps weed out? Interesting article on the subject:

Do you think it's more of a good or bad thing to waive pet adoption fees?

At first glance it appears to be a good idea, I mean, what's the point of taking it from one shelter straight to another. I see a lot of careless, heartless pet owners out there and I just don't get it. It's not like having a baby so why take a pet if you can't afford it or can't be bothered to take care of it.

I think having a pet is mostly cruel (like rabbits, birds, fish, etc.) They're stuck in a cage for your amusement...bastards.

Adopting is a good thing. The less the animal casualties the better.
