Brooke has recovered from her wounds and our volunteers are working to increase her confidence as well.   She has a very sweet nature and enjoys getting out and about when she is taken for a walk.   Brooke is cautious with strangers and a bit shy at first.   Once she realizes she can trust you, she quickly becomes your friend.

Brooke will do best in a quieter home that understands what she has endured in her past.   She bonds to those she likes and will become your constant companion.

How did such a beautiful girl end up unwanted and left in the night drop box at an overcrowded shelter?   At first the staff was stymied as to why anyone would leave a dog as sweet as Brooke in the night drop box.   Then the vet examined her and it became clear why Brooke’s family no longer wanted her.

Brooke had wounds on the back of her neck that were infected and sore.  Fur was missing in patches and the skin was angry and red.  The shelter believes several of these sores became abscessed and were untreated.  When we heard her story, we could not turn our backs on her.

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.
