6  year old Addie drew the short straw.   Her family had too many dogs and could no longer keep her.   Addie is a bit shy around new people, but once she realizes you are friendly – well then she is ready to be your pal!

Addie is unsure in new situations.  She is looking for a very patient person or people and a very calm environment to help her gain confidence.  We suspect that she was kept primarily outdoors, as everything in the world seems new to her.   A quiet, adult-only home would be her dream come true.

Addie is unhappy at losing her home and needs a home with someone who is home a great deal.   A home where someone works from home or a retired couple would be ideal.



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.
