Well if you mean to rescue/get back your dog from the pound/dog shelter it cost $25 the first time then $50 then $75 and so on. However if this is not your question and you wanted to know and were asking how much to buy a dog from the shelter then the answer would have to be it depends on a lot of things. The health of the dog, size, age, breed, and more. I hope this helped a little though. Good luck!!
