When we heard the heartbreaking story of Chance, we knew that we had to act. Easy-going and affectionate Chance was tossed away like garbage by his family when he got older. The family wanted a more active dog than their devoted 8 year old boy–so they “traded him in” for a puppy at a shelter. We are appalled that any shelter would let this happen, but the truth is that it happens every day–we just happened to hear about this case.
Chance is a fluffy 6 year old boy, probably half GSD and half Australian Shepherd or some combination of the two. He was in a cage with several other dogs at the animal shelter, so we think that he likes other large playmates. Chance is quick to greet you with a wag and to ask to be petted. We are getting to know him and will update his bio shortly.

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.
