Can we charge an adoption fee

Q: Your rules state rescues cannot charge a fee for adoption on your site? Are you referring to like a finders fee? Is it ok to charge our regular adoption fee?

The rule says:

9. does not allow users to require an application fee of adopters who find them via (An application fee is a non refundable fee charged to submit an application to adopt a pet, even if the application is not approved or the submitter does not adopt.) We do allow users to charge an adoption fee.

Thank you!
