Most dog adoption fees, whether from a breed rescue, or an animal shelter, range from $150.00 to $300.00. Why so much money? Who would pay that kind of money for a dog nobody seems to want anyway?
A lot of caring people.
What the Adoption Fee Covers
Primary vaccines for an adopted dog / Spay or neuter for the adopted dog
Health and veterinary care costs for any need
Cost of housing, taxes, and utilities used to keep the shelter warm and running properly
Feeding costs for animals
Salary or wages for workers (although most shelters and organizations run on voluntary help only)
Although the adoption fee is a way to subsidize costs of caring for the numerous animals, it also serves one greater function. The adoption fee will put off anybody who is not willing to spend money on their animals.
If you can not afford a $200.00 adoption fee, then you are unlikely to be able to afford care for your pet when he falls ill or has an accident. Saving the money to adopt a dog is a lot easier than having $500.00 cash in hand when something goes wrong and medical attention is necessary.
If you won't spend it to bring home a loving companion, 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 the dogs 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.
