I Like Kitties!UPDATED BIO!

Cara is a 6 month old girl who landed in a high kill shelter, unwanted and alone. The shelter staff were taken by her spunky personality and classic good looks. They couldn’t bear to see her face the grim ending slated for her, so they called GSROC.

Our volunteer saddled up her GSROC rescue-mobile and dashed to the shelter. She took one look at this sweet little girl and agreed – a happier ending needed to be found.

This puppy is ready to be someone’s friend, all she needs is a chance. Our volunteer named her Cara, which means “friend” in Gaelic to give her a fresh start.

Cara is now in a foster home polishing up her puppy manners. She gets along well with the other dogs there and likes to romp and play with the puppy in her foster home.

She seems to like the cats she has met – although chasing them is one of her favorite pastimes. When they stop, she understands to leave them alone, so a fearful cat will not be a match for Cara.

Don’t be fooled by Cara’s cute face though, she is an active, inquisitive and intelligent puppy and requires time, commitment and training to develop into the great dog she was destined to be. She is entering her “teen” years and as such displays typical teenage behavior. She will thrive in an environment that supplies discipline, structure and love.

Please think long and hard about this……Cara, like other puppies will get into mischief – it is how they learn. She needs a loving, strong home to show her the way.

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.
