Our typical adoption fee is between $295 and $495. On occasion this can vary, for example in the case of a senior dog or a puppy. All of our animals are vetted and spayed or neutered.
We are often asked why we ask for an adoption fee. Some people reason that our dogs are rescue dogs and therefore should be free. Please take a look at the information below, which helps to explain why we have to charge an adoption fee and where the money from an adoption fee is applied.
Adoption fees are necessary to help support the care of animals in our rescue group . If you were to pay a similar, or much higher, fee through a breeder or pet store, not only would you not be helping an animal in need, you would be paying for intentional breeding that has led to the overpopulation of pets. Adoption fees also help to provide care for the other animals in our care, who may have medical bills that are much higher than any possible adoption fee. In addition, the fees received act as a donation to help support our organization as a whole, allowing us to continue our efforts to rescue and re-home pets.
