MA Residents: Adopters who reside in the state of Massachusetts will be required to pay the quarantine fee of $100 for their adopted dog. MA requires that each dog be quarantined for 48 hours prior to going to an adopter's home. This fee is in addition to the adoption fee and is paid directly to the boarding facility that is approved by the state.
