Street Dog Hero




Meet Cady! Cady is one of four sisters that were dumped at a construction site. The workers fed them and gave them water for a couple weeks but then new workers came and ran them off. A woman who lived next door to the site took them in. Cady is a lab mix about 4 months old who is confident, affectionate, playful and sweet. They should grow to about 35lbs and won’t be very tall, kind of a mini lab. Cady was rescued from Todos Santos, 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.

  • 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.
