Attaching higher fees for some of our puppies and dogs gives us additional resources to provide extra help to other animals—those that may require unusually extensive medical treatment, orthopedic or other surgeries and extended care, prosthetic devices, and even more. Meanwhile, we can continue to provide our standard top-quality care and support to those animals in need of more routine medical care, socialization, behavior training, foster care, or that may just require a longer stay until they can be placed in the right home.
The fee assigned to a particular animal does not reflect our view of that animal’s intrinsic value. Every kitten, cat, puppy, dog or other small mammal is valued equally here. Every pet that comes to our doors deserves—and receives—the same tender care as every other.
If the puppy or dog you have selected has a higher fee than some others, keep in mind that the amount still represents a good value.
It goes without saying that no matter where our adoption fees are set, they don’t come close to covering all the costs of caring for as many as 25,000 animals that come to us each year. Generous donations make up the difference. Thank you for your support and understanding.
