While out walking the GSROC dogs, our volunteers found a crumpled up wad of dog hair on the side of the road. Approaching, they quicky realized that is was a dog in terrible condition. The dog was covered thick, heavy matts and had milky white cataracts on both eyes. The poor little guy didn’t object when volunteers scooped him up and got him to the safety of our kennel.

We have named this poor boy Archie. Since arriving, he has had a bath, been trimmed down, had his ears cleaned and had his nails trimmed. He has a painful open sore on his neck that it being treated. Our vet estimates Archie to be around 11 years old. He is blind, but might possibly see some shadows.

Archie is the third stray dog that our walkers have found in just one week. We have promised him that he will never be unwanted again. Watch for updates on Archie coming soon.




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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
