Adoption Fees

What's Covered in the Adoption Fee?

People often want to know why B.R.E.W. charges an adoption fee and what that fee covers. Effective March 1, 2019, the adoption fee is $400. We charge this amount because we spend a lot of money to get each beagle ready to go to their new home.  For most dogs, the fee does not cover all the vetting and maintenance medicines (heart worm and flea/tick) needed to get the dog ready for adoption.  This is especially true when one or more special treatments are needed beyond the routine items listed below, such as a dental, heart worm treatment or surgery.

Below is what's covered.

For Adult Beagles

  • Spay/Neuter
  • Vaccines, as follows
    • Rabies
    • DHPPCV (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza, corona virus)
    • Leptospirosis
    • Bordetella (kennel cough)
    • CIV (canine influenza)
  • Heartworm/Lyme/Erhlichia/Anaplasmosis test
  • Fecal test
  • Treatment if any result in the above two tests is positive
  • Microchip implant (for id purposes)
  • Heart worm preventative, until time of adoption
  • Flea/Tick preventative , until time of adoption
  • Any treatment deemed necessary by our vet
  • Boarding/Food (prior to placement in a foster home and during medical treatments)

For Beagle Pups

  • Shots, until time of adoption
  • Deworming, until time of adoption
  • Spay/neuter
  • Microchip implant (for ID purposes)
As you can see, our adoption fee covers a number of costs. Your dog will be covered for all the necessary inoculations for the first year. We will send you copies of all paperwork related to any service provided to your beagle.
