Adoption Fees


Our Adoption Fees as September 1, 2023 are as follows:

The average cost for caring for our dogs, including shelter fees, spaying/neutering, veterinary care, boarding and feeding exceeds $1,000 per dog. We ask for the following minimum adoption fees:

  • $450 for a puppy (under one year old).
  • $400 for an adult dog 1 thru 6 years old.
  • $200 for an adult dog 7 to 9 years old.
  • No adoption fee for senior dogs over 10 years old.

At the time of adoption we also collect a $100 deposit which is refunded after completion of two training sessions.

Any additional donation you are able to make will be much appreciated.

German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California is a non-profit all-volunteer organization.
