Charlemaine is quite simply a fabulous dog. She loves people. She likes to ride in the car and walks well on a leash. She had a severe case of heartworms that she clearly had been suffering from for some time. She is currently being treated. Her latest test showed no signs of activity, but she is still being monitored.

Charlemaine has been waiting for months for a new home. She’s the 5th German Shepherd we committed to helping as a result of the Katrina Hurricane. Now that she has recovered and tested negative to heartworm, she is finally hopping on a plane to arrive in California on Wednesday, January 11th.

All reports from Hearts United for Animals in Nebraska (rescued pets from Katrina)is that Charlemaine is a wonderful dog. We can’t wait to meet her and find her a happy ending. She deserves so much after what she has been through.

If you are interested in meeting Charlemaine, please contact Debbie for further information at JOHNANDEBHANCOCK@aol.com and also fill out the on-line application.




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.
