Peppertree consists entirely of unpaid volunteers dedicated to this mission. While Peppertree collects a modest adoption fee for each dog, $175.00 for adult dogs, and $200.00 for puppies, this rarely covers the cost the organization incurs, which averages over $400 per dog. All Peppertree dogs go to their new homes spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, and existing health conditions are always treated before the dog is placed. In order for Peppertree to carry out our mission in this responsible way, fundraising is a necessary activity, and we need your help! We look forward to seeing you at our event, thank you for your support!
