A kind animal lover found Aria wandering in a busy neighborhood. It is obvious this poor girl has been on her own for quite awhile. Her ribs and hip bones are very prominent.
Her skin is also in bad shape and needs to be addressed quickly. She has been bitten by fleas so badly and for so long, she now is missing fur in patches! The itching and discomfort she is enduring must be so painful. She is at our vet receiving treatment. She will need medicated baths, IVs and expensive antibiotics.
Aria now has pneumonia! This poor dog has overcome so many obstacles and now this! She deservies a break.
She is slowly making progress. Her lungs are still very full and she needs O2. She tires easily but can now eat on her own.
Can Aria count on your support? She has had so little love in her past – she deserves a better life. We need help to ensure we return her to her former beauty.
female If you would like to meet Aria, 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.
