It’s hard to imagine a person so cold and heartless that they would dump helpless puppies by the side of a busy street, yet that’s exactly what happened with these sweet babies. Someone didn’t even bother to take them to an animal shelter where they would have food and water–they just tossed the pups away like trash.
Fortunately, a guardian angel by the name of David happened to drive by and see the babies peering out of their box. He screeched to a halt and jumped out of his car to save them! From there, this animal lover got the pups food, water, medical care and a warm place to sleep at his home until he could find a rescue group to take them in. Enter GSROC!
We believe that these babies are shepherd and labrador mixes, but it’s a little too soon to tell for sure. It is not likely that they are purebred but they definitely have shepherd markings!
Puppies are cute and fun, but they are also an enormous amount of work. Please think very hard before applying to adopt a puppy, as you will need to invest a significant amount of time and money in training and raising them properly. To arrange to meet the puppies, please complete the online application first and then contact Dforsyth@socal.rr.com for more details.
If you would like to meet Box Babies, 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.
