You should also take in consideration that vet bills can add up especially in an emergency. When I was out of state, my German shorthair Pointer was hit unexpectedly by a car (the wind blew the door open) and I was right behind him. Not even a minute later a speeding car hit him and 10,000 dollars and 5 vets later, he is perfect, except for the slightly torn ACL and inexperienced vet accidentally did while examining him. So be aware of the commitment involved in care for your friend and know unexpected can happen. Owning a dog can average out to be well over a 1,000 a year (food, toys, vet checkups (this does not include emergencies), cages/crates or more if you include damage (I have gone through more shoes, phone chargers, head phones, iPods, jeans and other chewable possessions than I can count.)

Fees are set taking into account the dog's age, training level, temperament, medical condition(s) if any, and other factors. Some dogs require  hundreds, even thousands of dollars and many weeks or months be spent before they are ready for adoption, others do not. Adoption fees are used, not only to rescue and place the dog you are personally adopting, but to aid in the future rescue and rehabilitation of other deserving dogs. Our rescue has no paid employees and rely on volunteers and fosters, all funds go to our rescue canines.
