Betsy and her sister Berta lost their home when their owner died from an undisclosed illness. 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 both of these dogs. Both girls love to play ball and are working on their leash skills. Betsy is the larger of the two girls and will look you directly in the eye with a very soulful look.
We have had them with other dogs and they appear to be fine. They let us know they do not need to be placed in a home together.
Watch them interact in this video shot at the shelter before we rescued them.

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 In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021
The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)
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.
