I'm A "Leaner"Please Foster Me!No cats

Boston is a handsome guy, 5 years old, the perfect age! Young enough to play, exercise and have lots of fun, but old enough to have left all those puppy issues behind him.

Animal shelter personnel were so impressed with Boston’s sweet personality and happy manner, they notified our volunteers. When we met him – how could we say no? Boston is now safe in the GSROC lifeboat.

Boston’s story is a heartbreaker. He had a family and lived with two other dogs. However, the dogs were picked up by Animal Control and the family only had enough money to bail out TWO dogs. Boston drew the short straw and was left behind. While we are sad for Boston’s loss, we know that he was not receiving proper care as evidenced by how thin he was and the number of ticks that we found on him.

At his first adoption event, Boston was shy and overwhelmed. We could tell that he didn’t understand why he was there. We will continue to work with him to teach him that many caring hearts are working toward a better future for him. Boston does not like cats, so we suspect that he will not care for small dogs either.

Please watch for more updates on this sweet older fellow.

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.
