By creating a sliding scale of prices and putting the prices on the website they come across not as a caring rescue, but as a sort of bizarre used and nearly new petshop...

Some one should tell them! ...

Having different prices for your rescue dogs based on how much work you have had to put into them is one thing (unethical in my opinion but at least understandable) But some of these pups seem to be priced on desirability or age and thats just wrong. That turns them back into the commodity status that probably dumped them in rescue in the first place.

If you read the agreement it says: I acknowledge that the above puppy is not a rescue puppy and is being homed to help fund the rescue work of Oaktree Kennels.

The dogs are classed as rescues though, but none of the money is refundable. Seems a very strange system :/

You have to donate money to give them your dog and pay a large amount to rehome one, they are laughing x

Weirdest "rescue" website I've seen in a while! It's interesting how the JRT types are between 50-100 and the pugs are well over that...seems an odd way to do it, I wouldn't get a dog from them.

Actually -I doubt that it is.
A friend gave 250 for a Giant Schnauzer 6 years ago.
Donations now range from around 100 up. Looking at `designer` breeds with no health tests or pedigree going for hundreds and hundreds of pounds there`s no reason a rehome should be that cheap, unless it needs special treatment or is old.
If this Rescue is getting these prices and the money is going back into the Rescue, fair enough.
