I Need A Sponsor!UPDATED BIO!

Beast was surrendered to an animal shelter in terrible condition when his family moved.  This family failed to provide him with basic care and comfort for what appears to be an auto-immune condition.  We will be taking Beast to our specialists this week to determine the best course of action to relieve his discomfort.  Beast is 8 years old and a big sweetheart.  It hurts us to see him so miserable, so we are working hard to provide him with relief.


We wish we had better news to report.  Unfortunately, Beast is more ill than we thought.     The test results the specialist ordered are back.  He has several skin infections – all of which require costly antibiotics.  On top of that, he has some paralysis in his facial muscles which may cause some difficulty with eating and chewing.  The WORSE news is he as MRSA – which can cause serious issues.   He is now in isolation while we try to treat all these issues.   His care has gotten so costly, our heads are spinning!   Can we please count on your support?

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.
