We try to keep our adoption fees as reasonable as possible in order to give our pets the very best chance to find a new home. The adoption fee does not come close to covering the cost of care for our animals. At times, select dogs and puppies will have higher adoption fees. The higher fees are usually for purebred dogs or small sized dogs that are in high demand. These dogs are quickly adopted, even with their higher fees. Their adoption fees allow them to act as benefactors to other dogs. These fees can help give other dogs more time or special medical or behavioral rehabilitation and a better chance at adoption.
