I'm Housebroken!I'm Gentle and Calm

Gretchen was found by a good samaritan after she was hit by a car. Her owner was notified by animal control, and much to their dismay, they said they no longer wanted her after rescuing her as a puppy from the shelter!

Fortunately for everyone, the good samaritan got her out of the shelter, nursed her back to health, and asked us to help her find a good home.

Gretchen is a six year old beauty, who is very sweet and very smart. She is gentle and gets along with other dogs. Gretchen is already house trained and knows how to use a doggie door. She loves to ride in car and is very good walking on a leash. She shows no signs of aggression when feeding the other animals. Most importantly…she loves to be loved!

If you are interested in meeting her, please contact and complete an application online.

If you would like to meet Gretchen, 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 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.
