3 year old Asher is brand new at GSROC and boy, what a story he has to tell!    He was dumped in a rural area and left to fend for himself.  He tried to make friends with the dogs of a local homeowner, but those dogs were not interested.   They chased him off.   Other homeowners tried to capture Asher to bring him to safely by chasing him in a truck, hoping to capture him.

Finally a trap was set for Asher and he was captured and brought to the animal shelter.  Boy, was Asher glad that ordeal was over!  GSROC was called and asked to provide Asher with a new start.  After hearing his story, of course we said “Absolutely!”

Asher appears to like other dogs and warms up quickly to people as well.  He is relaxed and submissive around other friendly dogs.  Recently, we introduced him to a cat and he let us know it was no big deal.  We believe, with correct introduction, Asher could live with a cat.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
