Ellie Mae was living with an elderly woman and her son. After the son was hospitalized, Ellie Mae lived alone with her owner. Unfortunately, the woman also became very ill! Ellie Mae stayed by her side guarding her until help could arrive. When paramedics arrived, Ellie Mae placed herself between them and her owner to protect her until she could be sure her owner would be safe. The remainder of the family are unable to take give Ellie Mae a home.
Ellie Mae loves people of all sizes and is very mellow. She walks very nicely on a leash and she lives to please her person. She loves children and other dogs. Car rides are also one of her favorite things. She spent many hours with her owner happily watching the world go by.
She is very confused and upset about this turn of events and doesn’t understand what has happened to her family. We have promised Ellie Mae to find her a new loving home that will mend her broken heart.

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.
