What’s the Cost to Adopt a Small Dog in Houston?
Adoption fees for a small dog in Houston vary depending on the rescue. In general, you can expect to pay between $175 – $300 for your new pet.
The adoption fee reimburses the rescue for some of the expenses they have for your pet, including: spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, monthly flea/tick/heartworm, food, toys, bedding, and in some cases, facilities overhead.
Rescues are non-profits. They are not making money “selling” you a dog.
