Street Dog Hero


Brownie 1.jpg


Meet Brownie! Brownie is about 2-3 years old and a desi/Indie dog. Her entire human family died in a car accident on June 18, 2018 while returning from a pilgrimage trip in India. This is the link to the news published in newspapers about accident of her entire family. Our rescue partner in India took her into her care when a neighbor of the family posted her on FB asking for help as she became a street dog and wasn't adapting well to living on the streets. She loves people and is always asking for cuddles and pets. It's clear she was once loved and yearns for that again. Brownie is being fostered in Bend, Oregon. 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.
