Ashanti came to our Rescue through a long series of events. She was found in Louisiana on an overpass with another pup we believe to be her son. She was scooped up around Sept. 12th which means she had been on her own for about fifteen days!

A wonderful couple, Tom and Colleen Ford are long time supporters and adopters of our Rescue. Even after relocating all the way across country, they have remained active with our organization as well as the Hearts United for Animals in Nebraska (HUA.org). Ashanti was flown to HUA and came to the attention of the Ford’s who called and asked us to take her. Even though we are brimming over with homeless babies, we couldn’t turn her away.

On October 24th she arrived via airplane along with Big Easy.

When Ashanti was found in Louisiana, she was vomiting candy wrappers, paper, chewing gum, and string. This attests to her spirit to survive despite the odds against her.

Let’s show this poor girl that our spirit will remain as strong as hers and we will not let her down. She is in very good health and we will post more about her as we get to know her better.




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.
