Street Dog Hero




Meet Scooby! Scooby is a Great Dane, about 2 years old and weighs 77lbs. He is a gentle giant. He can be timid at first but warms up easily. He would do great in a home with older kids and a big yard. Scooby is playful and enjoys human contact. Scooby was being stoned in a neighborhood by locals and people had tried to run him over multiple times with a car. Luckily a neighbor took him in and kept him safe. Unfortunelty large black dogs are targeted in Mexico. He is anxiously waiting for a family who will love and treasure him. Scooby was rescued from Guadalajara, Mexico. Will you be his 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.
