Volunteer Favorite!

On his way to work one morning, one of our wonderful volunteers was traveling in one direction on the freeway when he noticed a shepherd swerving in and out of rush hour traffic in the other direction. Our volunteer got off the freeway at the next exit, turned around, fought traffic to get up to the front of the field and, with the help of a CHP officer, was able to get Dodger off the freeway.

Dodger is a fantastic boy—we can’t imagine how he ended up running for his life on a freeway. He had no collar, tags or microchip, and his ears bear scars from flies biting at them. Dodger is a large-boned boy with beautiful markings. He has a mellow personality and is definitely looking for someone to bond with.

To arrange to meet Dodger, please complete the online application first and then contact for more information.

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
