milo & papi
Meet Milo & Papi! This dynamic duo are cute little Chihuahua mixes about 5 months old and each weighs 7lbs. Milo is a more mellow guy, Papi a bit more active. They sleep well in their kennel but need more work on potty training. Milo was found along a long deserted highway in Todos Santos, Mexico and Papi was found wondering the streets of San Lucas. They are not siblings but best buds and we would ideally like them to find a home together. They are both good with kids, cats and other dogs. Will you be their 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.
