Adoption Fees and Transport

The adoption fee covers the cost of the dogs' care prior to adoption.  This includes all age-appropriate vaccines, monthly preventatives, and worming.  The dogs are tested for heartworm and, if positive, are treated and cured before being put up for adoption.  They are spayed/neutered if over 6 months. 


Prior to coming north, they are taken to the vet for a final check and an Alabama State Health Certificate.  All medical records accompany the dogs on the transport and will be given to you upon receipt of your dog.


The following Adoption Fees below are for dogs adopted via the internet as well as Adoption Event dogs. If you adopt more than one dog, there is a $50 discount on the Adoption Fee and a $60 discount for the Transport Fee for the second/third dog.


Spayed/Neutered Dogs: $285




Not Spayed/Neutered (puppies): $210 + $35 (Spay/Neuter deposit)   



*We require that our dogs be spayed/neutered by the age of 6 months.  The $35 deposit will be returned to you upon presentation of proof of spay/neuter.


"CELEBRATE HOME" Dog:   SPECIAL FEE  $200



Includes Adoption and Transport!






We consider the transport to be of great importance and, as such, take particular care of the dogs during the trip from Alabama.  The long ride is punctuated by frequent stops to give the dogs water, relief time, exercise, and snacks.  We make every effort to arrive with healthy and minimally stressed dogs.

Heather and David Sharit are the owners of "New Beginnings", the transport vehicle.  They make stops at locations in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The transport fee is paid on site when your dog is delivered. 

The transport fee covers the cost of gas, food, lodging, and maintenance of the transport vehicle.
If you are not located within driving distance of their stops, we will put you in touch with another transport (fees and collection procedure vary) 



Microchip $25





​*We accept check, money order, Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal.
