I love toys!UPDATED BIO!

7 year old Gia was in a desperate situation. She landed in a high kill shelter that was totally full.   Her time was running short and her options were limited.   GSROC heard of her plight and sent our rescue mobile to save her.

This girl loves her squeaky toys!  Toss her a toy to play with and she will be your new pal. Then, watch her trot off with her new “baby” as happy as can be.

At her first adoption event we let Gia see some smaller dogs.  Being the opinionated girl that she is, she let us know that small dogs are not her cup of tea.   Gia would prefer to be the only dog in your life but she’ll make sure that you don’t need any more!   This girl is very aware of her surroundings and watched everything carefully.  She likes to be certain everything is under control.

We don’t understand why Gia is still with us.  She has patiently waited her turn for adoption.  Please consider opening your home and heart to very worthy and fun loving Gia.

If you would like to meet Gia, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
