Please note Boxer Rescue's adoption fee is $350. As a registered charity, the adoption fee is tax deductible. The fee helps to cover the cost of vetting: At minimum these needs are spay/neuter, vaccines, heartworm test, deworming but also include surgery as well as caring for other medical needs (antibiotics, infections, diagnostics such as x-rays and ultrasound). Let us not forget the basic necessities such as food, collar and leash, toys. Thank you for taking the time to understand the need for BRQ's adoption fee.
