Meet Camp! Camp is 13 years old and has spent his entire life in a shelter. He was rescued as a pup on the verge of death from the streets in Mexico along with another dog named Pilar. They were a bonded pair and the shelter wanted to adopt them out together. This is very hard to do and eventually Pilar died leaving Camp behind in the shelter. Camp is a very easy dog who is in need of a loving family to enjoy living out his golden years with. He has a soft, kind, gentle soul. The person who adopts Camp will truly be a hero. Will you be the one?
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.
