It’s a small fee to save a life!
Secondhand Hounds charges an adoption fee to adopt through our rescue. Adoption fees for each animal can be found on their individual website listing and payment can be made below.
Adoption fees include the cost of spay/neuter surgery, microchip, de-worming, flea/tick preventative, heartworm test (for dogs and puppies over nine months), feLeuk/FIV test for cats and kittens, and age-appropriate rabies/distemper vaccinations.
By paying this adoption fee, you are not only adopting your new best friend, but you are also allowing us to save more lives!
Adoption fees are *non-negotiable* and are NOT considered a donation due to tax regulations. Fees can be paid in the following ways, with the required sales tax (7.525%) added:
- PayPal (You do not need a PayPal account to pay through our website with a credit card.)
- Cash paid in person at our office
- Cashier’s check (NO personal checks accepted for adoption fees)
