From today, 27th May 2017 our adoption fees for our hounds are changing.
The new charges are:
Hounds under 18 months - £225
Hounds over 18 months to 8 years - £150
Hounds over 8 - £80
Bonded Pair - £250
Bonded Pair over 8 - £150
Whilst in foster, our hounds get any veterinary treatment necessary, plus the basics of neutering, vaccinating and microchipping. Very often, our hounds come to us needing far more, for example, skin and ear infections, so these fees are very much needed, and do not cover the costs incurred. We have recently rehomed a hound who needed over £600 of dental work alone, but we needed to ensure that she was healthy and happy before we adopted her, so this was undertaken whilst in foster.
We also are now able to provide 5 weeks free insurance with each of our hounds, regardless of age, which is a big financial reassurance for our adopters.
We do hope you understand our reasons for increasing our charges, it has not been an easy decision to make, we have researched lots of other rescues for their fees and what they provide in foster and we feel that our fees reflect our ethos.
