I'm Recovering!


3 year old Angel came from an inner city shelter. She was surrendered by a backyard breeder along with three 9 week old puppies. Her puppies were taken away from her at the shelter and adopted out. Poor Angel – she didn’t understand why she was separated from her puppies. Consequently, she is shy and confused.

Our volunteers are working with Angel to help her understand that she is starting a new life.  We have promised to find her a loving family so she can enjoy playing, romping and enjoying days in the sun.

Angel walks easily on a leash and enjoys stretching her legs when our volunteers take her for walks.  This girl loves to explore green grass in the park.    She warms up quickly to new people and will happily stay by your side.

Recently we discovered a small sore on Angel’s paw.  She has had minor surgery and imbedded foxtails were removed.  Poor girl! That must hurt.  She would love to have a foster home where she could recuperate.

Adoption Application If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online or via fax. If you choose to send a fax, please download the Adoption Application here in PDF format; fill it out and sign it. You can fax it to us at 714-773-9430.

Home Visit Prior to any dog going home, we do require a home visit to ensure that your environment is safe and secure. Once your home has been approved, the adoption can move forward.

Adoption Donation Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. This donation is tax deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog's care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.

All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
