our adoption fees are
$300 for puppies up to 6 months old
$250 for 6 months old to 8 years old
$150 for dogs older than 8 years old
Our expenses preparing our dogs for adoption are much greater than our fees cover. Donations
above the adoption fees will help us continue our efforts to rescue dogs.
the fee includes
Shots including rabies
Dentals will be given to dogs that have health issues with their teeth.
We offer a full refund (minus a $50 processing fee) up to 14 days after the adoption if the adoption
doesnít work out. Once again, for the sake of the dog, we ask that adopters give the dog a
reasonable amount of time and patience before deciding to return the dog. If the dog does need to
be returned, it is the policy of NMDR that all dogs are returned to us and never surrendered to any
other person or organization for any reason.
placement of dogs outside of colorado springs
We have found homes for dogs outside the Colorado Springs area. Wherever you reside, if you would
like to make a deserving dog part of your life, please donít hesitate to contact us. We do not,
however, ship dogs. Interested adopters must come and meet the dogs. It would be best to plan a
trip after being approved for adoption. We would communicate thoroughly with a prospective
adopter and get references
prior to your trip.
placement of dogs in home with young children
NMDR does not typically adopt dogs into homes with children under 4 years of age. However,
depending on the child and the dog your family is interested in, exceptions are occasionally made.
Please understand that our proceeding with the application process does not mean that we will deem
any specific dog a good fit for your family, but we will do our best to work with you in finding the
most appropriate companion for your home.
Thank you for your interest in caring for a rescued dog.
