About adoption fees

We pride ourselves on providing proper, quality care of the dogs in our rescue program and being fully transparent to our supporters and adopters.  Rarely, do dogs arrive at Rise and Shine having been fully vetted and in some cases, they have special needs and/or require additional medical attention to become happy and healthy again.

Our adoption fees generally represent only a fraction of the costs associated with the each dog's rescue and veterinary care.   We feel incredibly lucky to have veterinary partners, who have graciously coordinated with us, to provide outstanding care to our dogs and we appreciate their time, support and expertise.   

While we work diligently to keep our costs as affordable as possible, it is only realistic and responsible to expect to pay fairly for the services and care our dogs each needs and deserves. 

Example Costs:

  • Office visits $40-50

  • Flea & Tick treatment/preventative $10-30

  • Vaccinations $10-15 each

  • Bloodwork $100
