When we take a dog in, we keep it in our home with our family and pets, or with a home based foster. Whether it takes weeks or months to find it a home, we keep the dog with us and incur the cost of it's care and vetting. We do our best to fundraise and also pay for a lot of our dogs needs out of pocket. It is partially funded by our adoption fees, but this typically does not cover all of our expenses during the year. We do charge a $75 surrender fee per animal to help go towards vetting, and food that we will have to provide for the dog until it finds a forever home. This fee is due upon intake of the dog into our rescue, and must be paid by cash. If transport is required to get the dog to our rescue, we waive the surrender fee, and you are responsible for paying for transport. Transport fees are anywhere from $100-$250 depending on where the dog is coming from.
