I Like Kitties!I Need A Sponsor!

Caesar is a big-boned guy who landed in the animal shelter very underweight–so much so that the shelter did bloodwork on him to see if he was ill. In fact, he is not ill, just severely malnourished. Although our rescue is overflowing with deserving dogs, when we heard that we were Caesar’s last hope, we drew in our collective breath to squeeze him into our rescue.

Caesar is a real catch. Someone invested in some basic training for him, and he doesn’t mind the shelter’s office kitties. He gets excited to meet other dogs when he’s on a leash, but once the introductions are over, he seems to enjoy other large dogs. He even kisses small dogs!

Caesar is looking for a loving forever home where he will always have a full bowl of good food, a soft bed to sleep on, and a caretaker who appreciates and treasures him. Could this be you? To arrange to meet Caesar, please complete the online application first and then contact for more details.

If you would like to meet Caesar, 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.
