Adoption Fees

All our Rescued Rat Terriers are Spayed or Neutered, Microchipped, Heartworm Tested and Up to Date on Shots. As of June 1, 2019 our adoption fees will be $400 for adults and $475 for puppies under 12 months, Our seniors (10+) will remain at $300. We are run by volunteers only and receive no funding. Adoption fees do not cover our costs incurred for each rescued dog. We rely on kind donations, fundraising and adoption fees to cover the costs for rescue, rehabilitation and placement of our rescued Rat Terriers. We are a non-profit Canadian charitable organization and all funds are used solely for rescue, rehabilitation and placement of our rescued Rat Terriers. Registered Canadian Charity No. 80288 7620 RR0001
