Meet Joy! True to her name, this little bundle of Joy is a spunky playful girl. She is a lab/pit mix about 4 months old. She doesn’t miss a trick and wants to be involved in anything you are doing. Joy has a great sense of humor and goes out of her way to make you laugh. She gets along great with other dogs and kids. She is young and eager to learn all that you will teach her! Joy 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.
