13 week old Gianna landed in a shelter broken and in pain. We were shocked when we saw her xrays – she has fractures in both legs and her hip is displaced as well. Our vet believes some of the trauma may have been due to this little girl getting hit by a car. Abuse may also have caused some of her issues. Our – it could have been both! Regardless – this girl needs her injuries treated asap and she needs surgery immediately.
Gianna is a just a baby – she deserves a better start in life that what has been handed to her so far. Can she count on your help?
Our surgery estimate is $4500.00 and all donations, regardless of the amounts are desperately needed.
UPDATE JAN 30, 2020 – Gianna has had her first surgery and is recovering. She has a broken hip, broken left leg and broken right hip. Poor little girl. The vet has repaired these fractures with pins and will be monitoring her recovery before deciding on the next step.

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.
