Pay your adoption fees

The Rescued Dog’s adoption fees cover the initial pull fee to rescue the dog from the shelter; an initial examination from our vets, including any necessary vaccinations; fees for the spay or neuter surgery; any medications the dog needs, including antibiotics and pain medications; and expenses for care of the dog from the time we rescue him or her to the time we place the dog with his or her forever family, including food, crates, bedding, and any other additional care needs.
