Would you consider that to be to high? Would it dissuade you from that particular rescue? Or is that an acceptable price for a rescue to charge for adoption fee?
**Just a side note** The dog in question may have heath problems but I dont see local rescues (who have paid for full hip replacements to keep dogs alive) asking that much for adoption fees.**
If you think that's high, have you tried looking at a local shelter or humane society? Sometimes, they have adoption fees for 50$ or even free.
