I Like Kitties!Don't Overlook Me

Charity waited and waited for her family to retrieve her from the animal shelter, but no one showed up. She was traveling with another dog, so we know that she likes dogs her own size. Charity is a little bit skeptical about small dogs, but we are working on this with her.

Who ever was entrusted with caring for Charity in the past didn’t do a very good job. Her ears bear the marks of nasty fly strike—the leather of her ear tips has been chewed away because her owners left her outdoors and didn’t care for her ears. Charity deserves to be loved as a true family member, not a yard ornament, so we look forward to finding her a family that will value her. As we learn more about her, we will update her profile.

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.
