Our adoption fee schedule is as follows:
Puppies up to 7 Months $400
Puppies 7 Months to 7 Years $300
Dogs 7 Years+ $200

Most of the adoption fee goes to pay for veterinary care and quarantine care.  Included in this adoption fee is spay/neuter, all necessary shots (based on age and weight) and other medical bills, some dogs require more medical attention than others.  It also covers the transport fees since quite a few of these dogs come from out of state.
