Meet Carnival! Carnival is about 4 years old. She was rescued from under an old abandoned van nursing her seven pups. She is a very happy and gentle dog and would make an outstanding first dog because she has perfect behavior! She walks beautifully on a leash, ignores cats and is very loving and trusting of people and kids. All her pups have been adopted and now it is Carnival’s turn to find a loving home! Carnival 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.
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.
