Shepherd impersonator!


Seriously, we can’t make these stories up! Blaze is a sweet, shy boy who was dumped in the desert. Left to live on his own during one of the wettest winters on record in S. Ca. He was living in a wash and finally got so hungry, he came out looking for food. A kind animal lover started feeding him but was unable to lure him to safety. Blaze was terrified however she was unable to easily capture him. He lived in the desert for over three months. Finally a professional trapper was brought in to catch him. Once Blaze was safely in the crate, GSROC was contacted.

Although our financial cupboard is bare, we made room in our lifeboat for Blaze. Who could refuse to help this boy?

Blaze is now safe with GSROC.  We are looking for funds for his boarding as he will be with us for a long time as we work with him.  Blaze has made progress thanks to a very dedicated volunteer, learning to walk on a leash and to approach new people without fear.

Recently we did a DNA test on Blaze as some were questioning what type of dog he is. Well, what a surprise! The DNA results show he is part Alaskan Malamute, part Sharpei and part Pekinese! Who would have guessed that?

Please send in your pledge if you would like to help sponsor Blaze’s boarding costs.

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.
