Please Foster Me!No cats or small dogs

Previous || Next

Gretchen is a sweet middle-aged girl, approximately 7 years old. Shelter staff members made an emotional appeal to GSROC to save her as they had become very attached to her at the shelter. She is happy and friendly,  but appears to like people much more than other dogs. She will tolerate some large dogs, but she most certainly draws the line and small dogs and cats.  They are just not her cup of tea.

At a recent adoption event, people marveled at how beautiful and expressive her face is. Her coat is thick and has wonderful highlights. She loves to hear people tell her how pretty she is. What girl doesn’t?

She walks easily on a leash and has a happy smile on her face when she is taken for walks.  Gretchen is just the right age, she loves to have fun and enjoy life. Want to go for a walk? Explore the park? Hop in the car and cruise the sights? Well, Gretchen is happy to do that too. Just snap on her leash and she is right there – ready to enjoy these experiences with you.

Please consider Gretchen if you are looking for a new friend.

If you would like to meet Gretchen, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
