How to set an adoption fee
PetRescue believes a responsible rehoming program includes desexing. , and that supporting vet work. This sends a strong message to the community about appropriate animal care.
We therefore recommend pounds place pets on the website under ‘pre-sale’ - meaning the vet work will be carried out after the pet is adopted.
Visitors to PetRescue expect to pay an adoption fee of several hundred dollars, and the fee you set can be used to offset the cost of desexing or any other veterinary expenses incurred.
Once an adoption is confirmed, you can take a deposit or the whole fee from the adopter, drop the animal at the vet, and arrange for the new owner to collect their new pet directly from the vet once they are sufficiently recovered to go home.
Arranging pet transportation and vet work are also jobs you can allocate to volunteers.
