What exactly is the point of.....

rescuing an ill herp ( or animal of any sort ) if you do not have the ability to give it the treatment it needs? ( example: being able to pay for vet check, etc )

I understand its the act of kindness, you want to rescue a sick/injured/mistreated animal, but really......if you don't have the means to nurse it back to health, why exactly are you rescuing it?

This is rapidly becoming a big pet peeve of mine. So many posts about rescuing this or that, but when suggested to take it to the vet, the response being I can't afford it. Well then why did you take it in the first place?

anyone else share these thoughts?
what about the other side of it, why do you rescue if you cannot afford the treatment?
Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with stupidity
