Street Dog Hero




Meet Mason! This handsome boy was part of what they called β€œthe chain gang.” The Mexican government removed Mason and 2 of his buddies from a very unsafe situation. The 3 dogs had all been chained inside a building and they had tangled the chains around each others necks. One was nearly dead when they untangled them. Despite this Mason is amazingly sweet and friendly. He is lively and playful and enjoys playing outside. He walks well on a leash and is good with other dogs, kids and cats. Mason is about 2 years old and weighs 35lbs but could stand to gain a few. Mason is such a great dog and ready for a loving home! He was rescued from Guadalajara, Mexico. Will you be his 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.
