GSROC Dog Adoption Events

Due to the current health emergency, we have suspended our formal adoption events.

We are still accepting applications and will show dogs by appointment.

If you are looking for ways to help the dogs in our care, please visit our Wish List located here.

We are always in need of donations to help us continue our work on behalf of forgotten dogs.

To Our Adopters, Supporters and Fellow Animal Lovers,

As you may know, Orange County, CA is currently under a “shelter in place” restriction to address the current health emergency.  This means that many of our volunteers are prohibited from taking our dogs out for anything other than essential veterinary care until the restriction is lifted.  We want everyone to know that our dogs are safe and being well cared for by a skeleton crew of devoted animal lovers, and that we are keeping the dogs active and entertained to the best of our ability under the circumstances.  Just like you, we never expected to be in a position like this, especially without warning.

Although our weekend adoption events have been temporarily halted, we are still showing dogs for adoption by appointment.  Please submit your application to adopt online and a volunteer will contact you shortly to set up a time for you to meet your next best friend.

For those who have asked, “How can I help?”, here are our greatest needs at this time:
-Foster homes are needed more than ever.
We have many dogs that would love to be out of a kennel and getting some one-on-one attention, especially if families are required to stay at home.  A large number of our dogs are very good with humans, but not so good with other dogs, so if you are a home without another dog, you are especially valuable as a foster home.

Please complete the Foster Application online and a volunteer will reach out to you shortly.

-Large bags of Costco brand Nature’s Domain Salmon/Whitefish Dog Food.
-Any grain-free, chicken-free healthy dog treats
-Durable dog toys — size large.  Jolly Balls (TM) are special favorites!
-Durable, used soccer balls
-Rescue Remedy (TM) natural calming aid for dogs experiencing anxiety
-Max & Neo easy-release collars, size large
-Pet Retailer gift cards in any amount (e.g. Petco, Petsmart, Centinela Feed, Kriser’s, Pet Supplies Plus, etc)
-Cases of canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

If you would like to send a care package to some of the dogs that are anxiously awaiting adoption, our delivery address is:

GSROC c/o 4691 Valley View Street, Yorba Linda, CA 92886

We promise to keep you posted as we get additional updates.  Thank you for caring about our German Shepherd friends.
