Archie is an 8 month old boy who has recently arrived from a distant shelter.   This boy likes to look around when he is being transported in our van.   Although we initially placed him in a crate safe for traveling, this guy worked his way out and sat on top of the crate for the ride.   A secure home with high fencing is needed for Archie.   This boy likes to see the world!

He and Veronica  were originally adopted from the Apple Valley shelter as puppies.  They were not related, but went to live in the same home.  Several months later, they were returned to the same shelter due to “moving”.  GSROC didn’t want to see them split up, so we rescued them both.

Recently we introduced him to a cat.  He did not appear to be interested in the cat.

If you would like to meet Archie, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
