Street Dog Hero




Meet BamBam! BamBam came to us after being in an abusive situation and being left outside for most of his life. BamBam is a very shy and sweet 4 year old lab mix who enjoys being with other dogs and humans all day. BamBam is searching for a family who can help him build confidence and show him that the world isn’t as scary as it seems. BamBam is shy and timid when first meeting new people but once he’s attached himself to you will not leave your side. BamBam loves to play with other dogs of all sizes and also enjoys just sitting and cuddling on the couch while you watch TV. BamBam does well around children, however prefers a more tranquil lifestyle. He is still working on crate training but is making a lot of progress considering he spent his whole life running the streets of North Portland. BamBam is very treat motivated and picks up new tricks quickly. He cannot wait to go home to his new family. BamBam was rescued in Portland, OR and is being fostered there as well. Will you be his hero?

steps to adopting

  • The first step to adopting a dog from SDH is to complete the adoption application. The application takes a few days to be approved. Once completed and approved it is good for all dogs and saved for future use.

  • To finalize an adoption you must complete the contract and pay an adoption fee of $300. The adoption fee helps cover our costs. On average, per dog, it costs between $300-$700 for vetting, transport, sterilization and more. All dogs are rescued and do not transport to SDH until they are healthy and ready to be adopted. All dogs are vetted before they fly, given standard vaccines and rabies, dewormed, given flea/tick treatments and tested for heart worm. Most dogs are sterilized before they fly, however if this is not the case we will spay/neuter them once they arrive at our cost.

  • Upon arrival all dogs are seen for a wellness exam and parasite screening. Any treatment necessary is at our expense.
