Street Dog Hero




Meet Kika! Kika is a very sweet natured girl who is about 3 years old and weighs about 40lbs. She has an adorable smile. She is the identical sister to Rita, who we rescued several month ago. Kika has a medium energy level and walks well on a leash. She gets along well other dogs and kids. Cats are unknown but we can cat test her. She’s been in the shelter for over a year and is VERY ready to find a forever family. She has great manners and can’t wait to snuggle up with her new family. Kika 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.
