Adoption Fees

Our adoption fees are:

Effective Nov 1, 2020:

$400 for puppies under 13 months old
$350 for dogs 13 months old to 8 years old
$250 for dogs older than 8 years old

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
  • Dental if needed
  • 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.
