Ava is a gorgeous classic girl who was found wandering the streets of LA, alone and unwanted. She was very thin when she was found, it was obvious she had been on her own for awhile. When all attempts to find her owner failed, the animal lover who found her turned to GSROC.

Imagine our surprise when our vet told us Ava was going to be a mother very soon! Ava gave birth to a beautiful litter. She had 7 boys and 1 girl!! She has now weaned them to be healthy pups on their own, and now she is ready to go to a home of her own to be cherished!

We believe Ava may like cats. She met the vet’s cat and was totally unfazed by it, even when it hissed at her.

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an 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 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.
