Adoption Fees

SDRO rehomes older dogs

Why Does Senior Dog Rescue of Oregon Charge an Adoption Fee?

Are senior dogs worth their weight in gold? We think so! That's why every dog that comes into rescue gets a thorough vet exam, spends time in a certified foster home, and is fed a high quality diet.

You can find each dog's adoption fee at the bottom of its bio.

There's a 10% discount for (human) seniors.

You can pay your fees online.

Our fees rarely cover a dog's expenses, but we know you want a dog that:

  • has been spayed or neutered
  • has a microchip
  • is current on all immunizations
  • has clean teeth
  • is healthy, fit and ready to be your perfect companion


We – and you – won't accept anything less. The proof? Almost 100% of SDRO's foster homes have adopted one or more senior dogs. That says it all!

Almost 700 dogs have been adopted from Senior Dog Rescue of Oregon!
