Our volunteer was at a high kill shelter rescuing a german shepherd. As she walked down the row at the kennel, her eye fell on Ginger.

Ginger was fighting a very bad doggy cold at the time. This can be a death sentence in crowded high kill shelters. Knowing that, our volunteer slipped her into our lifeboat to give Ginger a chance. We are happy to say that she has recovered fully from her cold and is feeling much better.

Ginger has a Grade 3 heart murmur. She can still have regular exercise, but marathon running is not for her. Our vet has told us that regular walks are actually good for her. Regardless, Ginger has lots of energy and is always ready for a walk or to have some fun.

This girl is only 37 pounds, so she is a petite girl.

Our vet has determined that Ginger is not breathing normally due to a soft palate abnormality. She needs surgical repair to correct this. Poor baby, she is unable to breathe well, especially when she gets excited.

Can you help Ginger fund this necessary surgery? Please click on SPONSOR to send in your tax deductible donation.

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.
