At 9 months old, Carly found herself already a mother and still a baby herself. A kind volunteer found the little girl, head hung low and with broken spirits. She was dumped soon after her puppies were born and was seriously neglected, displaying hordes of fleas and ticks. She has since been treated at the vet and underneath the filth and melancholy ways, sprung forth a happy-go-lucky, playful little shepherd.

Carly’s new owner will be patient and loving and should be willing to commit to the lifetime of this eager to please little girl. A firm, but not a heavy handed pack leader and some obedience training will allow little Carly to blossom into the German Shepherd she deserves to be. Could you be the one for 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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
