Street Dog Hero




Meet Sadie! This little ball of fur is 1 year old and weighs about 9lbs. She is a Maltese mix with a lot of love to give! She was put out on the street to fend for herself and when she was rescued she was dirty, matted, hungry and full of fleas and ticks. Now Sadie is a happy, energetic bundle of fluffy love ready for a family of her own. She does well with other dogs, kids and cats. Sadie 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.
