If you're cash only in today's economy then something shady is going on there. Processing companies give away the machines and waive merchant account fees just to get 1.5%. -CtotheVrzrbck
don't be so dramatic. think about it: people who go into a pound may be in an excited emotional state who, if their card doesn't work for whatever reason, would blame the pound for not being able to process their payment and make some really unreasonable demands. by being cash only, the onus belongs solely to the customer seeking the return of their impounded pet, saving the pound staff from some nasty situations.
i, too, hate it when places don't take cards, though.
this story is the saddest thing i've heard all day.
