Adoption fees

Our adoption fees are:

Dogs rescued after 01/01/16:
$325 for puppies up to 6 months old
$275 for 6 months old to 8 years old
$175 for dogs older than 8 years old

* Note:  As of 01/01/16, adoption fees were increased to offset additional costs for the initial microchip registration by NMDR.

Our expenses preparing our dogs for adoption are much greater than our fees cover. Donations above the adoption fees help us continue our efforts to rescue dogs.

Please be aware:
Our adoption fees represent a small portion of what it costs us to save these dogs. Here are some of the cost factors of running National Mill Dog Rescue

  • Facility lease & utility bills
  • Repairs and general maintenance
  • Veterinarians & vet techs
  • Transport fees
  • Food
  • Micro-chip and registration of chip
  • Heartworm treatment
  • Emergency surgeries
  • Medication – heartworm prevention, rabies
  • Spaying and neutering
  • Full dental (including any necessary extractions)
  • Vet bills and more vet bills!

We are a 501(c)3 Non-profit Organization devoted to saving the lives of puppy mill survivors. So please remember that your adoption fee is only partially covering what it costs to care for your dog from rescue to adoption.
