Age: 1 year old

I'm Recovering!

One year old Charlene came to us from a distant shelter. She is so very thin, almost totally bald and her skin is cracked and brittle. She has non contagious mange which has been left untreated. The pain and discomfort she has endured is tremendous.

What began as a small patch of ‘mange’ (skin mites) was allowed to progress to the point that she is completely bald, with raw and oozing sores on her skin.

In spite of all that she has endured, Charlene has a great disposition and is eager to make friends with everyone that she meets. Charlene will require prolonged treatment for her condition, with medicated baths and regular injections to help relieve her itchy skin. The treatments are expensive, but worth every penny to provide her with comfort and relief.

We are seeking kind people to help with the costs of her care. If you can find it in your heart to help this precious young girl return to her former glory, please click on e SPONSOR button and indicate that you wish your gift to be designated for Charlene.


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.
