I Like Kitties!Volunteer Favorite!UPDATED BIO!

Dodger was someone’s family member, but when he was picked up as a stray by Animal Control, his family elected not to recover him from the shelter. He is described as polite and affectionate by the shelter staff.

updated bio:

Dodger attended his first adoption event and made a big splash! He was polite to everyone he met, dogs and people alike. He has a calm, easy manner and took all the activity in stride. He bonds very easily with people and obviously enjoys spending his time with people.

He walks easily on the leash and knows basic commands.

His coat has gorgeous carmel colored highlights – something many women would spend buckets of money to achieve!

Recently we introduced Dodger to cats. He was not interested, even when they walked right by him. No leash pulling was noted. We even tried a second cat – same result. Based on this, we believe with proper introductions, Dodger could live in a home with a cat.

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.
