Most dog fees, whether from a rescue, or a shelter, range from $150.00 to $300.00. Why so much ? Who would pay that much for a dog nobody seems to want anyway? A lot of people.
Although the fee is a way to subsidize costs of caring for the numerous needs of animals, and also a legal requirement of non profit business ,it also serves a greater function. The fee will put off anybody who is not willing to spend on their animals. If you can not afford a $200.00 fee, then you are unlikely to be able to afford care for when he falls ill or has an accident. If you won't spend it to bring home a pet, then it is more than likely that you won't spend it when it is really needed either. It is a harsh world out there for pets, and making sure they go to a good, responsible home that will care for them for the rest of their life is the number one concern of most shelter and rescue volunteers.
