UPDATED BIO!Adoption Pending

Cooper is a handsome 2 year old who was picked up by animal control as a stray.  He landed in a high kill shelter like so many, many dogs do.   Cooper perked up his ears when he heard the voice of our GSROC volunteer.  He knew his best chance was to get out of that shelter as quickly as possible.  He quickly moved to the front of his run and gave his best doggy smile to our volunteer.  Needless to say, he is now safe with GSROC.

Cooper is a sweet boy who needs a quiet and patient home. He loves to play with other friendly dogs, but he gets spooked when people make sudden movements, or when he hears loud noises. Cooper is affectionate and happy, but he requires a little bit of extra assurance that nothing bad will happen to him. He has a soft personality and would love to be a follower if you have a dog that likes to be a leader!



If you would like to meet Cooper, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
