Adopting A Friend

Thank you for considering adopting a rescue companion!  We look forward to helping you on your journey to finding the perfect friend for you and your family.  We strive to ensure that each pet is a good match on a variety of lifestyle, energy, temperament, and personality levels.

Our adoptable pets have lived lives of homelessness, neglect, abuse, and in extreme cases, even torture.  In order to visit with one of our adoptable pets, you must first be approved for adoption.  To start the ball rolling, please contact us for an adoption application today!  You must first be approved for adoption before you can visit with one of our adoptable pets.


Adoption policy & fees: 

One must be 25 years of age or older to adopt one of our pets, and have a valid photo ID with matching current address;  agree to home visit; be able to provide a stable home physically and financially for the pet.

$225 UNSTERILIZED PUPPIES UNDER 4 MONTHS WITH $50 RETURNED UPON PROOF OF SPAY/NEUTER SURGERY*(required).   Chapter 828 of the State of Texas Health and Safety Code which specifies that all animals adopted from humane organizations be spayed/neutered.



Who We Are

The street dogs in Houston's Sunnyside and South Union neighborhoods are in desperate need of help. They live in deplorable conditions fending off starvation and abuse. South Side Street Dogs is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works exclusively and tirelessly for the street dogs of this area. 
SSSDs strives to change the attitudes towards animals in the hearts and minds of residents in Sunnyside- working to raise a sense of compassion through education, awareness, and setting an example of humane human to human/human to companion animal coexistence by our presence in the field. 
SSSDs aims to change lives through action and awareness- not just enriching the lives of the animals, but also of the residents.

SSSD does NOT pull from shelters or accept dogs from the general public. 
We only accept STREET DOGS into our program from our feeding routes on the streets of Sunnyside and South Union if fosters and funding are available. There is a waiting list of triaged street dogs, prioritised by the dogs in most danger feverishly networked and placed first. Minor injuries and illnesses are vetted in the field and seriously injured dogs are taken off streets and vetted asap.

Come Visit Us

We do not have a facility.  Our adoptable pets live in volunteers' foster homes, and some even in boarding facilities due to lack of fosters.  If you see a companion you feel would would fit in with you and your family, please contact us for an adoption application.  You can not visit with one of our dogs until you are approved for adoption.

Additionally, if you feel you would like to open your home to an animal in need as a foster, please contact us for a foster application.  Fosters are an invaluable resource in the work that we do rescuing these homeless dogs from the streets.  It is a very rewarding way for dog lovers to give back to the community!
