Street Dog Hero




Meet Kona! This beautiful medium sized girl is about 4 years old and weighs 40lbs. She shows excellent manners and has a very calm and composed sense about her. She was a pet for a few years and then dumped to live in the street until a local man rescued her and another dog (also available for adoption) and kept them safe until the shelter could take them. She is a gentle and loving soul who is sweet and would be happy hanging with her family or taking fun trips. She is great on a leash and does well with other dogs and kids, cats unknown. Kona 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.
