How much does it cost to adopt a pet from a local shelter?

When it comes to the cost to adopt a pet, there’s no single answer. Rates vary widely, with shelters reporting fees anywhere from $50 to $350+. That’s because each shelter is unique, and uses a range of different factors to determine a price that will support their shelter efforts.

If you live in an area where the cost of living is high, for example, the cost to adopt a pet is likely to be on the higher side as well. Pet adoption fees help cover the expenses that rescues and shelters incur while taking care of pets who are waiting to be adopted, such as veterinary care and food expenses.
