UPDATE September, 2019

Bear has recuperated from the infections that all his foxtails caused.   In order to ensure all of them were found and eradicated, Bear got a “lion cut” so that the vet could visualize the issue completely.   He already feels so much better!

Bear is aptly named.  He is a big old bear of a boy!  Bear is size xxxl!  This boy has a calm manner and likes everyone he meets.   Everyone stops to meet Bear, they are drawn to his teddy bear looks.

5 year old Bear is in a bad way.   His former family dropped him off at a crowded shelter because he had some wounds they could not care for.  Well, that was a bit of an understatement!   The vet examined him and discovered he had foxtail abscesses that had been left untreated!   His hind end above his tail has numerous infected wounds that needed immediate treatment.  We can only imagine how much pain Bear was suffering!

Bear is now safe with GSROC and your help is needed.   The vet has ordered costly but necessary medications to try and get a handle on these infections and get this under control.  Daily wound care with special medications is also needed.   Can Bear count on your support?  ‘

All donations, regardless of the amount are desperately needed!

If you would like to meet Bear, 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 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.
