I have been browsing various shelters online, and I am disturbed by what I have found at Ramona Animal Shelter's website, as opposed to others. Ramona says dog adoptions are anywhere from 97+ dollars up to $400.
Why is that. At the Landcaster L.A County shelter, dog adoptions are at a little under $40 dollars. Why is Ramona Animal Shelter charging as much as 9 times more for adoptions? If the goal is to find homes for the pets, and not line the shelter's owners pockets with money, then they should state why they charge so much more!
I know the volunteers do a good job here, and it is not an easy place to work, but come on people, if you want to get them adopted, think of the animals first!
Don't make it so they are not affordable to be adopted.
