Dog adoption procedures

Once you have chosen a dog, your property will be checked to ensure that you have adequate fencing to contain your new pet and that shelter is available.  If you are in a rental property, written permission from your landlord is required before we do the property check.

The adoption fee for adult dogs is from $255 and puppies are from $280.  Prices may vary.  This includes the de-sex, vaccination, microchip and treatment for fleas and worms.

On top of this cost you are also required to register the dog at your local council.
