Meet Cali! Cali is about 4.5 years old and weighs about 55lbs but she needs to lose a few pounds. Cali is a sweet hilarious girl. She LOVES to be loved. She would love to live in home where she can have human affection all the time. She would do best in a quiet environment as an only dog or with a medium/large dog to play with. She is friendly with kids but should be 12+ as she isn’t very aware of her body. She has lived with cats. She is very very food motivate and is slowly learning how to play with humans. Cali is a sweet gal who loves to greet you with wiggling her butt at you till you give her some love. Cali was rescued from Cancun, Mexico and is being fostered in Portland, 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.
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.
