Faithful and AppreciativePlease Foster Me!

Dante waited and waited at the public shelter for someone to come and reclaim him. Sadly, no one did. When his time ran out and there was no hope in sight, we tightened our belts another notch to make room for him. Dante could really use a sponsor to help offset the cost of his monthly boarding ($360 per month).

Dante is a good boy who hasn’t had the advantage of any training. He wants to please but really doesn’t know yet what is expected of him. He walks well on a leash, but doesn’t understand commands. He is good with other dogs his own size. Dante needs to gain at least 20 pounds as his body is much too thin for his masculine head. He didn’t have a clue what a car ride was all about and needed to get lifted in. After a few more rides, he’ll get the hang of it. We get the impression that Dante would really like to be someone’s special guy.

To arrange to meet Dante, please complete the online application first and then contact alderlysmith@aol.com for more details.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
