Meet Taylor

Meet Taylor! Taylor is an adorable female Husky-Shepherd mix puppy who recently came into our program along with her 7 siblings from a shelter in California. We received an urgent plea for help from a shelter in Fresno, CA, asking if we could take in 8, three-week old husky puppies or else they were going to be euthanized the next day. These puppies were dropped off at the shelter's doorstep in a box without their mom. Since this shelter was already over capacity with over 380 dogs in their care, they didn't have any more space for 8 growing puppies. There are 6 females and 2 males. In fact, the overpopulation crisis at this shelter in California is currently so bad that earlier this month, The Fresno City Council voted that the shelter would be reducing intake because the over capacity issue had gotten so out of control. Just this past Nov., the shelter stated that they had over 600 animals at their shelter and the number was growing every day. That is why they reached out to us to see if we had space. So our team drove the 9 hours, round trip to meet another transporter who was waiting to hand off the puppies to us down in Redding, CA. They've been in foster care since then, preparing for the rest of their journey to their forever homes. They're healthy, spayed/neutered, and up to date on their shots, although not yet fully vaccinated due to their age. Young pups like these will benefit from early training, regular guidance and boundary-setting, lots of patience and opportunities for socialization, which will help with their growth and development. Someone who's home most of the day who can tend to all of their puppy needs as they learn and grow would be ideal for a young pup's long term success. Submit your adoption application through our website today and don't miss this opportunity to bring this lovable pup home with you for a home trial towards their adoption. Will you be her hero?

Foster update:

"She is adorable and smart. I think she has doubled in size since I picked her up on Jan 30, so not quite two weeks. She eats 4x a day and is still super thin. She would eat all day if you let her. She's working on the potty training, we're not there yet. She's a chewer, bones, toys, ropes, flip flops outside the sliding door, lol. She and my 90lbs SDH dog love each other and play during all waking hours. His name is Mikey and he will definitely miss her. She does really well on the bed with my other dog. It's going to be really hard to let her go, I love her a lot."

steps to adopting

(OUR ADOPTABLE DOGS ARE IN SEPARATE TEMPORARY FOSTER HOMES BETWEEN BEND/CENTRAL OREGON AND THE GREATER PORTLAND AREA. THEREFORE, MEET AND GREETS ARE NOT DONE AT OUR FACILITY. TO LEARN MORE, PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR ADOPTION APPLICATION ONLINE AND OUR ADOPTION PROGRAM MANAGER WILL REACH OUT TO YOU WITH FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MEET YOUR NEW PUP!)

The first step to adopting a dog from SDH is to complete the adoption application. First click on the "OUR DOGS tab up above, and then click on the orange colored "Fill out an Adoption Application here" button to start the process). Once submitted, please expect 3-5 business days or sooner for processing and to hear back from us. Once you are pre-approved, your adoption application will remain on file with us for 1 year and it can go towards multiple adoptions within that 1 year time frame before it expires.

To finalize an adoption you must sign the adoption contract and pay the full adoption fee of $550. The adoption fee helps cover our costs. On average, per dog, it costs SDH between $500-$700 for vetting/medical/sterilization, transport and other rescue related expenses. All dogs are rescued and do not transport to SDH until they are healthy and ready to be adopted. All dogs are examined by a veterinarian before they fly, which includes sterilization whenever possible, given standard vaccines and rabies (if age appropriate). Most dogs are sterilized before they come into our program, however if this is not the case we will spay/neuter them once they arrive at our cost.

Upon their arrival, all dogs are seen for a wellness exam by SDH's medical team. Once the adoption is finalized, any further medical care or treatment will not be covered by SDH, unless discussed prior with our medical team. All known issues are disclosed to the best of our ability prior to finalizing the adoption.
