Street Dog Hero




Meet Twiggy! Twiggy was found running the fields in Guanajuato (Mex). She was in a desperate health state, skin and bone. They did not think she would make it through the night. Now she is a sweet, shy girlie who likes to run and play (not rough) and likes cuddles and treats. She gets along with other dogs, kids and cats unknown. She would do best in a calm environment with kids 12+. Twiggy is about seven to eight months old, on the small side , measuring 17in to the shoulder and weighs 13lbs. Twiggy 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.
