Sweet 2 year old Blossom is a happy, friendly girl who found herself left at a high kill shelter. GSROC dashed to her side to save her and her tiny puppy, Sprout. Both Blossom and Sprout have injuries: Blossom has a very old injury to her eye, necessitating the removal of the eye for her comfort. The cost for this surgery is $750.00, so we are seeking donors to help with her care costs.
Little Sprout, her puppy, also has suffered a traumatic injury, even though he is only 6 weeks old. Our orthopedic specialist says that he was injured when he was very tiny, and as a result, he has a leg that doesn’t work as well as the others. We have been advised to watch and wait to see if Sprout can gain use of his leg as he grows older. Amputation is not an option–we want to do physical therapy and help Sprout to gain muscle strength and balance instead.
Please consider making Blossom and or Sprout your special cause. Any donation that you can send would be truly appreciated.
female If you would like to meet Blossom, 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 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.
