Faithful and AppreciativeVolunteer Favorite!

Emma appreciates any form of affection. She has just arrived, so we are getting to know her better. Emma was found traveling on a deserted road with another dog. They both landed in the animal shelter and owners came to claim the traveling companion, but no one came for Emma. Emma was on her very last day at the shelter when she was rescued.

This classic girl has a gentle disposition. Just to be certain, we are going to have an opthamologist look at her eyes, but our impression is that she can see as well as any other 5 year old dog! She shares her foster home with 2 tiny maltese dogs that bounce all over her. Emma doesn’t mind—when she’s had enough, she just gets up and walks away. She is also good with other large dogs but prefers that they not play too hard. Emma has big, beautiful, forgiving eyes that can melt any heart. Come out and meet her—you will love this mellow girl.

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.
