Our Adoption Fee
Our Adoption Fee is $550.
This fee does not cover the costs incurred from when a dog is rescued until he/she arrives in your home. Depending on where the animal is rescued, the shelter requires a pull fee ranging from $165 to $200 per dog. Vet costs now can cost up to $800 or higher depending on the amount of vet care required. This includes but is not limited to spay/neuter, heart-worm treatment, standard antibiotics, health certificates at the time of travel, etc. Then there’s the costs associated with boarding/kenneling until the dog is adopted or a foster home can be found. Finally, there is the transport cost to move the dog from the South (Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, etc.) to the Northeast. With today’s fuel prices the cost ranges from $180 to $205 per dog. Let’s also keep in mind certain states require additional health checks and/or mandatory quarantine when an adopted or foster dog enters that specific state. Overall, it’s an expensive process to do the right thing and rescue these dogs. Please read Adoption Fees for all details.
