With her flowing mane and great attitude, Christie is the whole package! She has her entire life ahead of her and we know that with your help, we can make it a wonderful one for her! Christie has just arrived so we will update her profile shortly. Please check back soon for more information.
Christie was being kept in a ‘holding cage’ at the shelter—not even a real dog run! The cage was small and she could barely turn around in it, but the shelter staff was trying everything they could to prevent having to euthanize her due to space constraints! When they cleaned her cage, one staff member had to hold her on a leash while the other person cleaned her cage—that’s how overcrowded this particular shelter was, and how dedicated to saving her two staff members there were! We are so grateful that this precious life was spared!

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.
