(Chillicothe)- The Ross County Humane Society has set their adoption fees for puppies and adult dogs at $200. Due to increased cost of utilities, supplies, medical care and staffing the Society found it necessary to increase their adoption fees.

The increase went into effect January 1st, 2022.

On average, the Ross Humane Society says it spent $364 on each dog who crossed their path in 2021 and their average adoption fee was $175. “We feel that fees are in-line with other private humane societies, shelters and rescues in our area and we are proud of the things we have been able to accomplish.”

In 2021 the Ross County Humane Society will have spent just over $200,000 on medical care for dogs from the community. This includes spay/neuter initiatives, vaccines, preventatives, treatments and even surgeries for dogs who enter their shelter and members of the community that they have been able to help.
