Meet Renee! This cutie pie is about 7 months old and weighs 25lbs. She was found abandoned in the streets of New Delhi, India left out in monsoon rainfall. She is described as playful, energetic, very curious, sensitive, shy and super duper smart! She does great with other dogs and would love to have a dog sibling. She loves people and attention but would do best in a home with children 12+. She is ok with cats and has basic training in all areas. She follows routines, likes the car and is patient and quiet. She will need some more training and socialization practice due to the limited access she received at the rescuer’s home. Will you be Renee’s 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.
