Our dog adoption fee structure is as follows:
1) Our standard dog adoption fee for all non-LGD (non-livestock guardian dog) mixed breed rescues, is $50.
2) Our adoption fee for working livestock guardian dogs, including seasoned workers and young livestock guardians in training, is $250. Discounts are available for multi-dog adoptions.
(As an all-volunteer-run, nonprofit organization, 100% of all adoption fees received by the organization go directly to the care of animals in need)
All dog adoption fees include the following:
Spay or neuter surgery. All dogs will be spayed or neutered prior to being made available for adoption.
Age-appropriate vaccinations. Includes the Da2PP combo vaccine and rabies.
Heartworm testing. All dogs will be tested for heartworm and placed on heartworm preventative. Should a dog test positive, he or she will receive the proper treatment, and potential adopters will be made aware of the condition and educated of long-term effects, if any.
Deworming. All dogs are fully dewormed with a broad-spectrum dewormer upon entering our rescue program, and periodically throughout their time with us, per veterinary recommendations.
Full behavioral evaluation based on both the dog's initial intake and information provided by Ranch volunteers and behaviorists. Although no guarantees can be made in regards to an animal's behavior, particularly in a new and unfamiliar environment, we will always provide as much information as we can about the animal's behavior while in our care, in order to provide the best insight possible into the dog's suitability for the adopter's home and lifestyle.
