Street Dog Hero




Meet Benny! This sweet Poodle mix is about a year old and weighs 15lbs. Benny had a rough start in life. He and his buddy were seen being dumped on the side on a busy road. He was flea and tick infested and malnourished. Despite all he has been through he has bounced right back. Benny loves people, including kids, attention and love. He does well with dogs his size. Larger dogs make him nervous and he barks, cats are unknown. Benny is looking for a forever family to love and cuddle him and treasure him as he should be. Benny was rescued from Guadalajara, Mexico. 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.
