Our adoption fee varies per dog from $150 - $350, depending upon age, breed, and medical/behavioral conditions. Accepted forms of payment include cash, checks, or money order payable to Culpeper Humane Society. 

This fee does not come close to what we have already happily invested in your future pet including:  vet care for any medical issues (big and small) the animal has when we first take possession, follow-up care including dental work, when necessary, spay or neuter surgery, heartworm test on dogs over 6 months, heartworm and flea/tick preventative medication, Felv/FIV test on cats, first or more vaccinations, rabies if appropriate age, first or more deworming treatment, and microchip.
