Athena was found by a kind animal lover alone and unwanted. She is a cute girl who loves to make new friends. Sweet and oh so pretty, Athena is hoping to find a home of her own very soon. We can’t figure out how a sweetie like this would end up homeless – but we are determined to help her find a safe and loving home.
Athena is a young girl who will grow up into a drop dead gorgeous adult. But, right now she is still very much a puppy. She needs a home that will take the time to teach her correct behavior and doggy social skills. She wants to please – she just needs a leader to show her the way.
Please remember, while puppies are very cute and endearing, they need training, love, and patience to become wonderful adults. They are cute and cuddly but also full of energy. It is a lifelong commitment and one that needs to be carefully thought out. As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training. They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything.
PLEASE NOTE: PUPPIES ARE SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. THEY DO NOT COME TO ADOPTION EVENTS. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION AND A COUNSELOR WILL CONTACT YOU DIRECTLY. THANK YOU!
female If you would like to meet Athena, 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.
