Athens - ADOPTED

I'm a "velcro dog"!

Athens found herself in a very scarey, high kill shelter surrounded by bigger and tougher dogs. Fortunately, our eagle-eyed shelter scout spotted her and arranged for GSROC to whisk her into our care. Athens has just arrived so we are getting to know her better. We expect her to remain on the small side based on our initial impressions.

Puppies are adorable and fun, but they are a lot of work! Please be certain that you are ready to make a lifetime commitment (11-12 years for most dogs) before you elect to add a puppy to your family.

To arrange to meet Athens, please complete the online application first and then contact for more details.

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.
