Adoption Cost Review

Our adoption fee is $300.00 for puppies under one year, $250.00 for adult dogs under 7 years old and $150.00 for adult dogs over 7 years old.  This includes:


  • Initial vet check
  • Spay/neuter surgery
  • Flea/tick treatment/preventative
  • De-worming
  • Dental work (as needed)
  • Heartworm test
  • Heartworm treatment (if test is positive)
  • Heartworm preventative
  • Vaccinations (all that are due prior to the date of adoption):
    • Distemper/parvovirus/adenovirus/parainfluenza
    • Rabies
    • Bordatella (kennel cough)
  • Other vet care as necessary
  • Boarding as needed thru foster period
  • Microchipping


Although this may seem like a lot of money, if you talk to a vet, you’ll find out that most of the work we do costs more than the adoption fee. Triangle Beagle Rescue is a non-profit organization and operates solely on our adoption fees and donations that we receive. Some dogs cost less than the adoption fee, but others have cost us up to $1000 in vet bills.


If you cannot afford to pay the adoption fee in full, please reconsider the idea of adopting a pet. Pets are a lifetime commitment and they need you to survive. Emergency vet visits are inevitable at some point in time, and they are not cheap. If you cannot assume full financial responsibility you may want to reconsider owning a dog. A great way to get the benefits of dog ownership and companionship without the financial responsibility is through our Foster Program.
