We have a standard $300 fee for any dog/puppy. Our fee covers all vaccines to age appropriate Dapp, If they are old enough for rabies they will receive it otherwise rabies is your responsibility. All puppies under 16 weeks get all puppy shots thru us till 16 weeks of age. Puppies are de-wormed every 2 weeks while in our care. Frontline monthly while in our care between May-Oct, heart worm preventative monthly while in our care May-Oct. Every dog regardless of outside temp gets an initial treatment with frontline, de-wormer, and heartworm preventative. It also includes spay or neuter. Some shelters will micro chip for us and in this case it will include the micro chip. Micro chip will be noted on each individual dog.
OUR FOSTER TO ADOPT PROGRAM: Some of our dogs/puppies have not yet had the opportunity to have their spay/neuter done yet. We feel that less change for a dog/puppy is better so if we can place them in a forever home instead of foster home we will. In return we put them in our foster to adopt program. How it works is you apply for your dog/pup just like any other and go through the same steps. If approved you place a $300 nonrefundable deposit and you can take your dog/pup home until it is time for it to be fixed. You will also get your full packet of info. We will notify you of the appointment date. We use the U of M. Students are the ones doing the surgery. This will be a day surgery. You will usually be required to drop your dog off in Golden Valley on the morning of surgery and pick it back up that afternoon. If you don't like this idea or want to talk about it you need to do right away not right before surgery. After Surgery pick up they are officially yours. If the unforeseen happens during surgery your $300 will be returned or a new dog or puppy will be found for you. If you want to use your own vet we do except that but it will be at your expense. There is an additional contract to be signed that will have a required to be fixed by date. If we do not receive proof of altering by that date you will have your dog removed from you no exceptions.
If you adopt a dog through us it must not be removed from your home in any way without written permission for 2 years after adoption. If you do remove it you will be charged a $500 fee.
There is certain circumstances that may cause us to lower the adoption fee. If the dog/puppy has a lower fee it will be noted on that individual dogs listing
We are a small foster based rescue that relies soly on adoption fees. We work hard at saving one dog or pup at a time. We mostly rescue puppies and their mommies too but we do have foster homes that only want to foster adult dogs. We do not limit ourselves to only puppies. We are always in search of new foster homes and encourage others to help out in the fight of lost, abandon, and unwanted dogs. This is a great way to have a dog with out the financial commitment. If you would like to foster dogs or puppies please contact us and we will get you the application and information.
We will be at Woodbury Petco on dates below:
SATURDAY MAY 7 10-2
Please look at each dog to see who will be attending each event. It will always be listed on the individual dogs. Most dogs are also availble for private meet and greets during the week. Please email us for information and an application.
