I love to go for walks!I need a job!

Over and over again we see fabulous dogs like Dash just tossed into back yards where their unenlightened owners expect the dogs to entertain themselves. It is unrealistic to expect an active, herding breed dog (or any dog for that matter) to be content to just wait around in the yard for occasional attention. Dash was left outside 24-7 and when he got bored, he would bark. Instead of correcting the situation (which in reality was their ignorance), Dash’s owners dumped him at the shelter where he was taking his chances with Life and Death when we found him.

We see the wonderful character and tremendous potential in Dash. He has already made friends with our volunteers. He is a macho male dog, preferring to play with female dogs his own size or larger. We do not recommend Dash for a home with smaller dogs or cats, but if you are looking for a big bubba who will be your constant companion, Dash is your guy!

Dash has some stiffness in his joints and hips and requires daily antinflammatory medicine to help him stay spry. He sure doesn’t act like a 6 year old dog! To arrange to meet him, please complete the online application first and then contact KKannen@hjklawfirm.com

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.
