Adoption Fees

Adoption fees at HSNEGA vary depending on the animal. Listed below are the general fees for adopting an animal; however, our rescue/adoption efforts cost more than the fees assigned and adopters are certainly welcome to donate more than the fee to help the next homeless pet find their second chance!

ADOPTION GUARANTEE FUND ANIMALS

Adoption Guarantee Fund animals are highly desirable and likely to be adopted very quickly. Their extra fee goes to our Adoption Guarantee Fund which enables us to continue our efforts to find homes for every healthy, adoptable animal in our care no matter how long their stay with us might be.
