Please Sponsor My Vet Care


Carter was being advertised on Craig’s List by an unethical backyard breeder as a “3-4 year old male, great for breeding” and “free to a good home”.  He was done with Carter and wanted him gone. When we heard of his story, we rushed to bring him to safety.

Imagine our shock when we first met Carter.  He is an older dog – our vet believes he is probably 8 years old.  Not only that, Carter is ill – seriously ill.   He has open sores on his skin and fly strike on his ears.   It is obvious that he has been neglected most of his life.

Our vet has told us he is very ill.  He has been started on costly antibiotics.  Can he count on your support while he fights this infection?

If you would like to meet Carter, 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 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.
