I Need An Experienced Owner

ASTRO is an active and happy neutered male German Shepherd. He came to us from a Southern California animal shelter where he had been picked up as a stray. We think he is about 4 or 5 years old. Given Astro’s rough start in life, he appears to have a remarkably balanced and happy disposition.

Astro has made lots of new friends after coming out of the shelter – in fact, he seeks human attention. He seems to get along well with other large dogs. He does not appear to have any food or toy aggression. He is a big, strong dog that will do best with a confident handler.

He will need a home with secure fencing. He appears to be able to climb walls   Come meet Astro!!!

If you would like to meet Astro, 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.
