Street Dog Hero




Meet Mackenzie! Mackenzie is a loving playful 1.5 year old pup. She is the mother of Staci, who is also up for adoption, and three other puppies. Mackenzie is very playful with toys, other pups, people and she is potty trained. She is very friendly and everyone she meets is instantly her best friend. She is very loyal and easy going and would do best in a home with kids 10+. Car rides and playing with squeaky toys are the highlights of her day followed with curling up on the couch and getting cuddles from her new family. Mackenzie was rescued from Gresham, Oregon. 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. You are also able to adopt a dog that is the right fit for you and your family and that fits your lifestyle.

  • To adopt a dog, you must complete an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee of $300. The adoption contract helps cover our costs. On average per dog it costs us 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 before they fly are vetted, given standard vaccines and rabies, dewormed, given flea/tick treatments and tested for heart worm. We also try to sterilize the dogs before they fly, but if this does not happen we will spay/neuter them once they arrive.

  • ALL animals MUST be sterilized within a month of arriving – and SDH will cover the cost. Once the dogs arrive they are vetted again with our vet and treated if needed. All SDH dogs (and cats) receive a lifetime of support.
