If you are a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and interested in adopting a dog from a Rescue Group outside the State, you need to be aware that your adoptive dog is required to be placed in a state approved quarantine facility for a period of 48 hrs prior to going to your residence. Please note: the cost for Quarantine ranges from $100 to $170 depending on the Quarantine Facility. This fee is in addition to the $550 adoption fee.
