Senior sweetheart!I Need A Hero.

All Dutchie wanted was a place to rest her head after devoting herself to her family for 9 years. But instead of a soft bed to sleep on at night, she was given a cold slab of concrete at the shelter. Day after day people passed her by because she wasn’t a puppy any longer. No one looked past the gray muzzle and wisdom-filled eyes to see the still amazing German Shepherd underneath. The day came when the shelter was going to euthanize her and we just couldn’t allow that to happen.

Dutchie isn’t asking for much, just a warm bed for her remaining years and someone to be her companion. She is looking for someone to love her when her own family forgot her.

We are looking for a permanent home or a long-term foster home for Dutchie. She is housebroken and her health is stable, she in on daily meds for her arthritis but gets around well. She loves to take walks even if it’s just around the front yard to smell the grass or lie in the sun. Dutchie is great with dogs of all sizes.

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.
