UPDATE: NOVEMBER 5, 2016
ALLIE has recuperated from her respiratory infection and is doing great! She loves her foster brothers and sisters and has even made friends with the family cat! Allie walks easily on a leash and enjoys car rides. She has impressed her foster mom with her ability to not only learn new things, but learn them very quickly. Allie is not just another pretty face, that’s for sure.
Allie loves to get out and exercise – just like all puppies do. She is learning to jog on a leash when her foster mom rides her bike. Maybe Allie is planning to enter a doggy decathlon! She is always up for new things.
If you are interested in meeting Allie, please complete the online application.
Allie is a sweet 7 month old baby girl who landed in an understaffed, overcrowded, high kill shelter. Not a good way to start out your life. However, Allie’s situation was even worse! Labeled as “depressed” because the little girl lay in her cage, barely moving – Allie is actually quite ill. GSROC took one look at her picture and fired up our GSROC “Rescue-Mobile” so we could save her.
When our volunteer was finally able to spring Allie from that horrible place, she quickly discovered that Allie was quite ill. She had a green discharge draining from her eyes and ears and she was totally lethargic. Not only that, her temperature is 104 degrees! Allie has been rushed to the vet hospital and treatment was quickly started. She is now getting costly antibiotics and IV treatment. She will stay in the pet hospital during this treatment.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 21, 2016 – Allie is suffering from a very bad respiratory infection. She is now in isolation and needing costly antibiotics. Even as ill as she is, she tries to wag her tail at the vet staff.
Needless to say, GSROC was not planning on these unexpected costs. Can we count on your help to pay Allie’s unexpected vet bills? Please share Allie’s story with other animal lovers you know as well.
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.
