Adoption Fees

"A house is not a home without a pet" - Anonymous

We charge a fee for the adoption of our animals. We do not profit from our adoption service however, this fee helps us to partially recover some of the costs we incur to care for and prepare our animals for rehoming. A responsible pet owner should expect to have on-going costs throughout their pet's life so our fee is a very small price to pay for the love and life-long companionship of a pet. Our fees are as follows:

(N.B. Shaded cells indicate fee inclusions)

Adult Cat


Adult Dog



Rats/Mice/ Guinea Pig

Flea Treated              
Worm Treated

*All dogs and puppies must be registered at the time of adoption. This is an additional cost and the rate varies depending upon Council/District fees and date of adoption. Our staff will assist you with this during the adoption process.
