Candy is a 1-2 year old girl who is sweet and playful. She was recently turned into a high kill shelter by her owner with one of the most unusual reasons we have ever heard.
You see, Candy and her pal, Rex were living in a dusty, dirty backyard. Their owner recently had eye surgery and was afraid they would kick up too much dust – so he dumped them at a shelter!
We could not believe our ears when shelter staff told us that was the reason Candy was now homeless and unwanted! Who could do that to such a cute girl?
Candy is safe with us now and eagerly looking forward to finding a home that will cherish her and provide her with love and safety. She has told us she will repay that with undying devotion and loyalty.
Candy is looking forward to beginning her training so she can show her new family just how intelligent she is.
We are just getting to know Candy and will update her bio shortly. Please check back often for updates.

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.
