Local adoption fee is $75....we have all dogs over 3 months of age spayed and neutered before being adopted. All dogs are also current on age appropriate vaccinations, wormer, monthly flea/tick control and monthly heartworm preventative. We get discounted vetting services from Searcy Animal Clinic and Wadley and Watson Vet Clinic in Searcy, Bald Knob Animal Clinic, Harrisburg Vet Clinic and the Wynne Shelter vet. We couldn't do what we do without them! Out of state adoption fees described below.
Out of state adoptions require additional vetting for health certificates and include transport costs, so adoption fees will vary depending on location. Transport costs to the New England states, FL/AL/TX/LA and IL/WI/CO areas are $150. Dogs that are listed with our northern rescue partners will be listed with adoption fees ranging from $275-$350. This includes that transport mentioned above, spay/neuter, all age appropriate vaccinations and wormers, monthly flea/tick control, monthly heartworm preventative or treatment for our heartworm positive dogs, a vet exam prior to leaving for a health certificate and a donation to the listing rescue for their help. Dogs have to be parasite free to travel and that often times requires extra medicines such as Metronidazole or Albon.
Many rescues are asking $500-$600 for adoption fees...we will NEVER do that. That is not true rescue and encourages adopters to buy from breeders. When we need extra funds for illnesses/injuries/surgeries, we ask and have fund raisers.
