Street Dog Hero




Meet Boreguita! This girl is around a year old and was found with a rope around her neck cutting into her skin – she was skin and bones. She was rescued by a man who is now very sick and needs to get his dogs out as no one is there to take care of them long term. When I walked into this yard with 20 dogs she stood out to me – her eyes, her demeanor. People that know her and help at this mans house say she is calm and loving, loves attention and to be close to people and I couldn’t agree more. She is great with dogs and people. Cats are unknown. She’s medium sized, probably around 40 lbs and her fur is medium in length, She reminds me of a border collie/lab/irish setter mix. Beautiful girl and is so deserving of a home. Borgeguita was rescued from Guadalajara, Mexico. Will you be her 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. You are also able to adopt a dog that is the right fit for you and your family and that fits your lifestyle.

  • To adopt a dog, you must complete an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee of $300. The adoption contract helps cover our costs. On average per dog it costs us 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 before they fly are vetted, given standard vaccines and rabies, dewormed, given flea/tick treatments and tested for heart worm. We also try to sterilize the dogs before they fly, but if this does not happen we will spay/neuter them once they arrive.

  • ALL animals MUST be sterilized within a month of arriving – and SDH will cover the cost. Once the dogs arrive they are vetted again with our vet and treated if needed. All SDH dogs (and cats) receive a lifetime of support.
