Apollo arrived from the shelter with a very treatable skin disease which his former family had ignored. He had to be shaved–much to his embarrassment–and his coat is starting to come back in. He will be ravishing when he is back in full coat. Apollo has a white patch at his neck that makes him look like he is wearing a tuxedo! All dressed up, with no where to go—let’s find this handsome guy the home of his dreams!

Apollo also arrived with an injured foot—it is not broken, but his pad was very raw and irritated. He is being treated for this and recovering. He needs a sponsor to assist him with repaying his vet for this care—can you make a donation in any amount to help Apollo pay his bill? Please click on DONATE and indicate that your gift is for Apollo.

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.
