Please apply for one of our dogs ONLY if you are dedicated to making this a lifelong decision. While we understand that sometimes circumstances change in one's life, we want you to go into this with the full intent to keep a dog for the rest of it's life. Some of our dogs have been abandoned, lost, neglected, or abused and to only make a commitment for a month or a year is simply not fair to the dog. However, if you do adopt from us, you will sign a contract stating that the dog MUST be returned to us if you cannot keep it for any reason. The dog must be returned to our rescue in good condition and up to date with vet care.
Our expenses can sometimes be high due to the type of dogs we rescue and the care that we give them. You may be adopting a dog that had been injured or had expensive care or surgeries performed and that cost must be absorbed somehow, therefore, we charge a reasonable fee based on the age and breed. We keep our dogs current on vaccines, heartworm preventative, dewormings and flea and tick and grooming, and all have been spayed or neutered and microchipped, all of which are expensive. Our fees range from $200 for a smooth coated chihuahua, $300 for a long haired or wirehaired breed, and $350 for a non shedding breed such as a yorkie, shihtzu, poodle, maltese, bichon, or mixes of non shedding breeds. Occasionally, we may ask more for a high demand breed or young puppy. We also have some dogs which we offer for free or a nominal adoption fee, due to age, issues, or disability. Regardless of the fees charged, all dogs receive full vetting, grooming, and go home with the same packet of information, food and toys.
