Street Dog Hero




Meet Negrita! Negrita is a 2 year old Deutsch Hound mix who weighs about 15lbs. She is very relaxed and loving. She likes to be around people, so she can be considered a social butterfly. Negrita is house trained and walks well on a leash. She does well with dogs and cats and couldn’t be happier to be around children! She was found walking along a busy highway with her daughter both covered in mange. Negrita now has a beautiful shinny coat and is anxious to find her forever family. Negrita 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.
