Ernie is hanging tough and working on his recovery.   The bones in his leg are healing but this is not a rapid process. His vet just told him the news that he needed to stay on bed rest for 4 more weeks.  Ernie wasn’t too happy about that, but understands and agreed.  Especially once we gave him a special chew toy to keep him busy! He is still wearing the apparatus on his leg to help his recovery.

UPDATE;  Ernie has successfully completed his surgery and is continuing his crate rest as prescribed by our vet.    He has a sweet personality and likes other friendly dogs.



2 year old Ernie landed at a crowded shelter with a severely injured leg.  He needed immediate surgery to correct the shattered bones in his leg.  One look at his xray shows just how much pain this poor boy had endured.   GSROC could not turn our backs on him.

Ernie has successfully completed his surgery but funds are still needed for his costly vet bill.

Can we count on your support?    All donations, regardless of the amount are desperately needed.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
