The majority of dogs rehomed by Wodonga Dog Rescue have an adoption fee of $350.
If we are to break it down - $350 does not even come close to covering the cost of the majority of dogs whilst in our care.


To desex a dog (depending on sex and weight)

$183.80 – $255.30





Transfer of Microchip into adopters details        


Total cost is already at

$298.90 - $370.40 (including GST)


Additional costs for dogs in care include, but are not limited to:

  • Any other veterinary treatments required

  • Any other medications required

  • Flea Treatment

  • Worming Treatments

  • Food Cost

  • Transport Cost

  • Blankets & Bedding

  • Leads & Collars

  • Training Toys & Treats

There are very few cases where we are lucky enough to cover our cost with our adoption fee.
Without public donations and wonderful foster carers we simply would not be able to continue to rehome so many wonderful dogs in need.


Thank you -
