Meet Sasha! Sasha is a 7 month old Australian Shepard/Lab mix who weighs about 40lbs. She is a wonderful combination of, easy to get along with, playful, sweet, silly, cuddly and very loving. She is also very trusting and loyal and eager to learn how to be your best friend. She was found in a vacant lot with her brother and Mom. She loves to play with her brother but is more calm and attentive when she is the only dog. Sasha has an amazing story of perseverance, courage and patience. She is so sweet and caring - and can be attentive and sensitive, and she is truly ready for a loving, committed home. Sasha 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. 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.
