What does the adoption fee include?
Why does it cost so much to adopt from your organization, when I can adopt from a shelter for much less?
But think about this: when you rescue a dog from us, you know what you are getting. The dog is kept in a foster home, and is trained to be well behaved inside a home. Most of our dogs are house-trained and crate-trained. They also undergo behavioral training (such as learning not to chew, dig, steal food, etc.) We can tell you if a dog is right for you (i.e., good with kids, good with other dogs, very active, laid-back, etc.)
When it comes down to it, many adopters are acquiring a $150 – $500 dog with all vaccinations, etc., AND training! We also throw in a collar and a leash. That’s quite a deal if you think about it.
