A devoted volunteer was at a large Los Angeles Animal Shelter when Georgia was brought in on a leash…the volunteer’s eyes filled with tears and her heart filled with anger over the horrific condition that Georgia was in. According to those bringing Georgia in to the shelter (where she faced a likely death)a family had left Georgia tied up outside in their yard without love or care. A neighbor intervened to release Georgia from this torturous existence and brought her to the shelter. The alert volunteer brought Georgia’s sad fate to our attention and, despite our meager resources, we had to help.
Georgia’s skin was crawling with fleas, and her fur and skin had been gnawed away. She had raw and oozing sores from scratching and biting at herself to relieve the itching, and she was drastically underweight. Her ears were painfully infected and a yeast infection ravaged one-third of her body.
Fortunately, Georgia is now at our vet’s office receiving medicated baths, antibiotics, blood tests, and much-needed affection. As we learn more about Georgia’s prognosis, we will update her profile.
Please help us with a gift of any size to assist with this deserving senior girl’s care. We are desperate for help during what has been a very distressing summer for shepherd. Click on DONATE to pledge your gift for Georgia.

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.
