We are convinced some of our volunteers are magnets for dogs who find themselves in dire situations. How else to explain this scenario?
Two of our GSROC volunteers were returning from a much needed vacation. As they were driving home, they witnessed Freddie perform a high risk attention maneuver. He dashed across the snow covered highway right in front of their car! Not satisfied with this short dash, Freddie then proceeded to CHASE cars on the highway – narrowly avoiding getting hit in the process!
Our volunteers pulled off the road and managed to lure Freddie off the highway and to safety. They then took him to the local shelter. They then determined no one was looking for Freddie and there was no room for him at the shelter. So, they decided to bring him back to So Cal!
He is fitting in nicely with his new foster family and playing with his GSD foster brothers and sisters.

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.
