What is a Reasonable Rehoming Fee for a Doberman Pinscher?

by Adopt a Pet, | January 11, 2024


Are you looking to adopt a Dobie, or your rehoming your pet? Either way, you need to know what is a reasonable rehoming fee for a Doberman Pinscher. The fees vary based on several factors, including age and health of the pet and the organization from which you are adopting. If you’re rehoming a dog, you should always charge a rehoming fee of at least $50, but charging a higher fee helps to ensure the adopters are willing to invest financially in your dog. 

I Need to Rehome My Dog Quickly. Will a Rehoming Fee Slow the Process?

You aren’t just looking for a home for your pet; you’re looking for the right home. If a potential adopter is unwilling to pay a reasonable rehoming fee, they aren’t the right fit. That being said, quality adopters will understand the need to charge a fee and doing so isn’t likely to slow down the rehoming process. 

Benefits of Charging a Rehoming Fee for Your Doberman Pinscher

For rescues and other organizations, charging a rehoming fee helps to offset the costs of caring for dogs—although it doesn’t come close to covering those costs completely. If you’re a private owner rehoming your dog, you might wonder why you should charge a fee. There are two main reasons:

  1. To ensure the adopter has the ability to financially care for the pet and that they are willing to do so.

  2. To prevent the dog from being used for nefarious purposes, such as dog fighting or being sold to a lab.  

Don’t feel uncomfortable about charging a rehoming fee for your Doberman Pinscher. It’s the right thing to do.
