Our adoption fee / donations varies for each dog and we usually include it in the dog's description. We try to recover the money we spend on the dog for veterinary exams, immunizations, spaying/neutering, Heartworm tests, flea/tick control, food, grooming, etc. Most of the time we have to pay shelter fees for the dog we rescue and sometimes we incur expenses in having the dog transported to his/her foster home.
Some dogs come to us with medical problems which need to be addressed before they can be adopted. We are not in this for the money and we will always ask a fair price for each of our dogs. If adopters require a dog to be professionally groomed before transfer to them this cos,t will be in addition to the adoption/donation fee and typically runs around $50 - $60 per dog.
