I'm Gentle and Calm

4 year old Berta and her sister Betsy lost the only home they had ever know when their owner died of an undisclosed medical condition. Sadly, no family members were available to care for them and they found themselves alone in a very high kill shelter. GSROC stepped up to help these two lonely ladies.

Their original potential adopter experienced an unexpected set back and GSROC is now looking for a new home for these two.

Both girls love to play ball and are working on their leash skills. Watch them chase the ball in this video!

Berta is a bit more aloof than her sister. But, perhaps as the younger of the two, she takes her cue from her big sister. We have had them with other dogs and they appear to be fine. They have let us know that they do not need to be placed together.

Watch them play in this video taken while they were at the animal shelter.

If you would like to meet Berta, 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.
