Why is the adoption fee so high?

Renee’s Rescues charges $125-$500 for dog adoptions, depending on their age. This may seem like a lot, but when you take into consideration the amount of money we spend to take care of each dog, it really is very minimal. Our Fosters parents give the dog lots of love, socialization, and training. They are also fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and microchipped prior to adoption. Because our mission is mainly puppy mill dogs, we could spend as much as $750 on dental work alone if we found it medically necessary. In addition to all medical care we also send our dogs home with a collar, leash, and toys.
