German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County received a call from a woman stating that she could not keep her German Shepherd for another day. It turns out this poor girl has had 4 different homes thru no fault of her own. She was sold as a puppy and returned when she acted like a puppy and chewed a few things. Her next 3 homes either moved where they could not take her, or no longer had time for her.
When we got the call the woman said if we didn’t come and get Amy, she would just call Animal Control… How heartless can a person be? Our volunteer arrived to find this beautiful girl chained to the porch of a trailer. As our volunteer approached Amy she began to wag her tail. When our volunteer unchained her, Amy gave kisses of gratitude. We took Amy right to the vet and got her fully vaccinated and checked out. She had an ear infection, which is being treated, but otherwise is in perfect health.
Amy is about 85 lbs, 4 years old, spayed and a sweetie. She is good with other dogs but would do best in an adult only household. She is the perfect passenger in the car and walks perfectly on leash. She loves people, is housetrained and will make a wonderful family member.
If you are interested in meeting her, please complete the application online or email email@example.com
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.
