We ask for an adoption fee to cover the costs associated with providing top notch veterinary care. In about 60% of the cases our actual fee doesn't cover the full cost, and every week we have sick dogs who need expensive care to get them ready for adoption. The adoption fee for our dogs ranges from $100.00 to $500.00 depending on the dog's vet care, age, desirability and other related costs. Our fees include full vetting that includes:

  • Heartworm tested negative or treated
  • Heartworm preventive 
  • Drontal for worming
  • DA2PPvL+Cv vaccines for distemper, parvo, etc.
  • Bordatella vaccine for kennel cough
  • Rabies vaccine
  • Capstar to kill fleas if needed
  • Frontline Plus to prevent fleas and ticks
  • Spay/neuter
  • Full dental for almost all small dogs
  • HomeAgain microchip

Our adoption fee must be paid at the time of adoption. We will fully refund the adoption fee if the adoption doesn't work out for any reason, providing the dog is returned to us in good condition within two weeks of adoption. We reserve the right to retain or prorate the adoption fee for dogs returned later than two weeks after adoption.
