Fees Explained

No Money For Animals

No money before, during or after an adoption is for the animal.

Due to being an animal rescue to do not charge for the animal, insted we recuperate the costs of each animal through our adoption fee.

What does this mean?

Basically you pay nothing for the animal itself and pay the rescue for the following;

  • Rescue of the animal.
  • Housing the animal.
  • Feeding of the animal.
  • Providing treatment to the animal.

Adoption Fee

Our adoption fee is to help recuperate the cost of the following;

  • Stool and Blood testing for each new animals in isolation.
  • Medical cost of ill animals taken in.
  • Electricity Costs
  • Feeding Costs
  • Medical needs of permanently ill animals.
  • Costs of substrate.
  • Costs of housing.
  • Costs of lighting.
  • Costs of heating.

Vetting Fee

When you own your own setup we will need to come and check it out. This cost time and traveling expenses. 

For this we charge a small minimum donation of £3.

Admin Fee

Our admin fee is to help cover the costs of the paperwork for adoptions.

During the process of rescuing, until the time of adopting there is a lot of paperwork and records involved with every animal. 

At the time of adoption there is a transfer of ownership document to ensure the client is happy to move ownership from the old owner to us Liverpool Reptile Rescue. 

This Transfer of Ownership form holds all the data possible about the animal and its details.

At the time of adoption there is our adoption forms, care sheets, insurance voucher and our new adoption certificates with authentic certificate paper.
