Ginger was rescued from a high-kill shelter on her very last day. She pawed at the volunteer as she walked by, beckoning her to save her life. Then she showered her with kisses through the fence, demonstrating how much love she has to give! Now she is now safe with us, and looking for a loving, forever home to call her own.

Ginger is amazing with people – there is not a person that Ginger doesn’t like! She loves to play ball, carry her toy with her, ride in the car, go for walks and guard her family. She is housetrained and knows her basic commands as she has been through some training classes.

Ginger was not socialized in the past and she must have an experienced dog owner who knows what it takes to work with a strong and confident dog who dominates if she has the chance. She gives respect to those who command it in a loving, patient way. Ginger will probably be best as only dog although she may be able to live with a submissive male.

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
