Adoption Fees

We are a non-profit organization. Our mission is to save animals. We do have volunteers and donations, which help immensely, but there are still additional costs involved in operating an animal rescue which we need to pay for. A very small portion of the adoption fee goes toward helping with costs such as dog food, handling and transport equipment, educational programs, public awareness, and the many other costs associated with rescuing and helping animals find loving and forever homes. The majority of the adoption fee goes toward covering the actual expenses for the animal being adopted.

While we do strive to keep costs as low as possible, we also want to make sure that when you adopt a rescue pet, he or she has been thoroughly examined by a veterinarian and important health issues are taken care of. Providing an adoptive family with the greatest peace of mind possible on the health of their new pet is something we at Paws 4 Hope Animal Rescue believe is very important. Every pet is different in what they need, but issues like spay or neuter, dental care, vaccinations, flea treatment, grooming, and anything else that might be crucial for the dog's good health are taken care of. Some rescued animals require additional and extensive treatment before they can be ready for their forever homes. However, we still do our best to keep those costs to a minimum.

Puppies and Adult Dogs      $250 and up
Seniors over 7 years      $150
