Street Dog Hero




Meet Frederika! This sweet girl was dumped out of a car along the side of the road in Mexico by her “family.” She had a bacterial infection from a flea bite that caused her to loose some of her hair. She has recovered from the infection but the hair still needs to grow back. She is 1.5 years old and weighs about 19lbs. She is a cocker spaniel mix. She gets along with dogs her size, cats are unknown. She loves to be on your lap at all times. She is potty trained and would do best in a home with kids 10+. She has medium energy level and will play a bit with dogs her size but really, she just wants a lap to lay in. Frederika 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.
