Adoption Fees

0-6 months-$350.00
7-12 months- $300.00
13 months-8 years $200.00
Over 8 years $175.00

Please be advised: Our adoption fees are non-refundable. In the event that the dog proves to be unsuitable for your situation, and you have completed a home trial and signed an adoption contract, you have the option to exchange him/her for another dog within 14 days of the date of the adoption contract, subject to approval. If you choose to forego your home trial and proceed straight to adoption, no exchange will be offered. A home trial is offered as a convenience to potential adopters to ensure the dog being placed in the home, is the correct fit.
