I'm Special!I donated blood to a police K9!

Five year old Amika lost her owner when he died unexpectedly. She stayed by his side for 3 days until he was found. She was then taken to a nearby shelter to await her fate.

The staff at the shelter were crushed to see this beloved companion of a hero sit there day after day. Amika was out of time… Luckily, the shelter reached out to GSROC in a last attempt to save this special girl. Our volunteer rushed to save her.

Amika is a larger sized girl and about 5 years old. She is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. She rides well in the car and likes to go for walks. She is very affectionate and loving.

We promised Amika we would find her a family to love her and care for her. We owe it to not only Amika, but the hero who loved her and gave so much for our country.

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 In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021

The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)

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.
