Adoption Fees

Adoption fees fund our rescue organization. Your adoption fee covers the rescue of your dog, boarding/kennel costs if applicable, transportation to Seattle, and all medical care. The adoption fee includes a spay/neuter, all vaccinations (Rabies, Bordatella, DHPP), heartworm testing, microchipping, deworming, grooming, behavioral assessment, and more.

The adoption fee also helps fund the rescue of other dogs when possible. Some dogs cost a lot to rescue, and their adoption fees will never come close to covering their costs. Orthopedic surgeries, emergency veterinary care and chronic conditions are very expensive and the vet bills add up quickly. Other dogs are relatively happy and healthy, so they are “‘hero” dogs that help us care for other special needs dogs that need more TLC.

If you have questions or concerns about adoption fees, please contact us. The adoption fee is firm, but we are always happy to provide documentation for rescue costs when requested.

The pricing table below provides approximate adoption fees for various dogs we rescue, and may vary by dog.
