When we were contacted about Gus, we did not hesitate to make room on our life raft for him. Unfortunately, within a few weeks it became apparent that there was something wrong with Gus. He became lethargic, stopped eating and had diarrhea and vomiting. We have rushed him to the vet and have received the diagnosis we did not want to hear……PARVO.
Poor little Gus is giving it his all to fight his way back to good health. But, he needs your help! We have been down this road before and we know how costly it is. Antibiotics, IV therapy, lab work and 24 hour care are vital to ensure Gus has a chance to beat this horrible disease. We were not expecting this financial hit but how could we say no?
All donations, regardless of the amount are desperately needed to help Gus with his fight. Can he count on you?
Gus is a cute little puppy who was given as a surprise present to someone. Unfortunately, the parents in the situation were not on board with this “surprise” and stated Gus had to go. This is one of the major reasons we do not believe it is a good idea to give a puppy as a present.
GSROC was asked to find a loving home for Gus and we agreed.

Gus, 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.
