Adoption Fee

 
Why does it cost £100 to adopt a Homeless Hounds dog?
 
When dogs come into the care of Homeless Hounds we have no record of their previous medical history and an extremely high percentage of the dogs are are un-neutered.

The following costs are presuming that the dog has no current medical conditions which require treatment.
 
 
Typical costs for a male dog:
   
  Neutering £ 80.00
  Full Vaccinations £ 35.00
  Microchipping £ 20.00
  Flea and Wormer £ 10.00
     
  Total £ 145.00

 

A female neuter is more expensive and depends on the size of the bitch

 
 
When you adopt a dog from Homeless Hounds you have the peace of mind knowing that:
 
1) the dog you have been selected to adopt has been assessed by us and matched to your family and living conditions via a home check.
   
2) The dog will have been vet checked and the above vet treatments will have been carried out*
   
3) Homeless Hounds dogs come with a home trial period where you are able to get to know your dog and see if it is a perfect match.
   
4) all our dogs come with lifetime backup from Homeless Hounds.
   
* Sometimes dogs will be rehomed with a neutering condition in the adoption form. This is followed up by us.
 
 

Sometimes we get a dog who has been chipped and neutered already and is in perfect health. Any money from the adoption fee from these dogs goes to the many other dogs who are not as well, not as 'cute' and instantly adoptable and remain for long periods in emergency boarding.

 

 

 
 
Homeless Hounds is a non-profit organisation and our trustees are unpaid
