Why Do We Have Adoption Fees?

  • Spaying and neutering
  • Vaccinations, including Distemper, Kennel Cough, Parvo, and Rabies and De-wormer.
  • Food and Shelter.   This includes providing shelter, blankets, dog houses, food, with some dogs requiring special food for special diets. Also, we provide toys and treats.
  • Flea control, grooming supplies, and bathing.
  • Medical Care and Medications, which can be quite costly to the Rescue.  We frequently use eye medications, ear medications, skin medications, intestinal medications and also we provide x-rays when needed and any emergency or any other needed medical attention when  necessary. The cost to provide care for just one dog can be anywhere between $150.00-$500.00, and depending upon the particular situation, possibly more. This of course does not include costs involved in maintaining the rescue, maintenance and other day to day operational costs.  Please remember, we do not receive Federal or State Funding.  The adoption fees we charge allow us to to continue to care for these animals. 

A common question among adopters is why do we have adoption fees?  Shouldn't the dogs be free or at least discounted because they are rescue dogs?  When you adopt a dog from our Shelter, your fees are helping with the continious costs involved in the care of the dog.  These costs typically include, but are not limited to:

Pets,, can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, ease loneliness, encourage exercise and playfulness, and even improve your own health. Caring for an animal can help children respect others. Pets also provide valuable companionship for adults. Most importantly, pets provide unconditional love and companionship.
Studies have found that:
  • Pet owners are less likely to suffer from depression than those without pets.
  • People with pets have lower blood pressure in stressful situations than those without pets. One study even found that when people with borderline hypertension adopted dogs from a shelter, their blood pressure declined significantly within five months.
  • Playing with a dog or cat can elevate levels of serotonin and dopamine, which calm and relax.
  • Pet owners have lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels (indicators of heart disease) than those without pets.
  • Heart attack patients with pets survive longer than those without.
  • Pet owners over age 65 make 30 percent fewer visits to their doctors than those without pets.
  • While people with pets often experience the greatest health benefits, a pet doesn’t necessarily have to be a dog or a cat. Even watching fish in an aquarium can help reduce muscle tension and lower pulse rate.
  • One of the reasons for these therapeutic effects is that pets fulfill the basic human need for touch. Even hardened criminals in prison show long-term changes in their behavior after interacting with pets, many of them experiencing mutual affection for the first time. Stroking, hugging, or otherwise touching a loving animal can rapidly calm and soothe you when you’re stressed or anxious. The companionship of a pet can also ease loneliness, and most dogs are a great stimulus for healthy exercise, which can substantially boost your mood and ease depression.

The World Health Organization says there’s currently no evidence that household pets can contract or spread novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
A dog in Hong Kong tested “weakly” positive for novel coronavirus in February, but experts believe it was due to superficial contamination.
The CDC still recommends restricting contact with your dogs, cats, or other animals if you get sick with COVID-19 until we have more information.

Pet owners, breathe a sigh of relief: There’s currently no evidence that cats, dogs, or any other household pets can contract or spread novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which has impacted hundreds of thousands of people worldwide via human-to-human transmission, according to the World Health Organization.
You may have heard back in February that a dog in Hong Kong tested “weakly” positive for novel coronavirus, per CNN. But many experts think the dog was only superficially contaminated, meaning the highly-sensitive tests picked up low levels of the virus in the animal—not enough to warrant the diagnosis of an active COVID-19 infection like those in people.
While it is believed that COVID-19 originated from an animal source, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) explains that there is “no reason” to think that any animals or pets could be sources of new COVID-19 infections. The CDC also confirmed they have not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19.
“There is no research to support human to animal spread,” says Shelley Rankin, Ph.D., a professor of clinical microbiology and head of diagnostic services in the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.  "article from"
