Explanation of Adoption Fees

Puppies six months of age or under are a $300 donation with a $50 deposit for spay/neuter, upon completion with a veterinarian's certificate, this deposit will be returned to you unless you choose to donate it to the rescue.  The amount due at the time of adoption for a puppy is $350, you will receive a coupon at the time of adoption for a $25 credit towards dog training through Wet Nose Rescue.  We accept cash, checks, credit and debit cards, there is a $25 fee for returned checks.  Dogs over six months are $300.

Our mission is to help you find the right dog, this usually requires some time and patience.  We will work hard to help you adopt a new companion but we need your cooperation and understanding to be successful.

As part of the adoption process, you will be asked to sign a contract in which you agree to certain conditions, including maintaining regular veterinary care, any emergency care that might be needed and mandatory spay or neuter unless determined by a certified veterinarian that it is unable to be done.

All dogs shall be given a comfortable living arrangement, fed and watered and never abused in any way including negligence.  If there is any violation, all rights of ownership shall be forfeited.
