Q:

What is a rehoming fee?

A:

A rehoming fee is an amount asked for by a pet owner or rescuer when they are adopting or readopting a pet to a home. Many animal organizations believe that 'free to good home' ads place pets in danger of not being adopted to a good home.

Animal rescue sites such as The Forgotten Cats of Toledo suggest that pet owners or rescuers ask for a nominal fee of 20 to 50 dollars to rehome a cat, depending on how much veterinary work the cat has had performed. This is thought to weed out people that use animals illegally to resell to testing facilities or the like.
