I love to play in water!UPDATED BIO!No cats

We received a call from a distant shelter that this loving little girl was in danger of being euthanized due to overcrowding.

Darla had come in as a stray, and no one was looking for her. Darla loves to be petted and rubbed and will crawl in your lap if you let her. She is a pretty girl who would truly benefit from a basic obedience group class that would help her learn what is expected of her. Darla is young and eager to please.

We recently introduced Darla to a cat. She was very interested in her, although she did lose interest when she left the room. For that reason, we believe a feline free home would be best for Darla.

One thing Darla DOES like is water. She was visiting a volunteer’s home recently. When she saw the pool in the backyard, she hopped right in for a swim!

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an 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.
