The pet listing fee is different than the adoption fee.
Adopt a Pet is no longer collecting adoption fees for pets listed via Rehome on Adopt a Pet. 100% of the pet's adoption fee goes to the pet's owner.
Adopters pay the adoption fee at the pet handoff (not before), after doing a Meet & Greet (meeting the owner and the pet in person), and after both parties have agreed to the adoption.
Fun Fact: 100% of all listings fees collected by Rehome by Adopt a Pet help make this service possible, in turn, reducing the number of pets needing to enter the sheltering system by connecting pets in need of another loving home directly with potential adopters.
