Sounds like she's selling it; a modest rehoming fee is reasonable but not 700 bucks.

I agree, that is not a rehoming. That's an outright for sale.

sounds to me like it might not be hers to begin with.

However I have been wrong before.

Outright sale. Is she asking for any proof that the 'adopter' can provide a good home? If the only concern is the 'cash money', then it's just a sale, period. Just makes them feel better about dumping their pet in exchange for money.
