This is Hans. We were contacted by a distant shelter to rescue this poor old gent because they had prolonged his time at the shelter too many times and they were faced with having to euthanize him. The shelter staff had already extended Hans’ time over and over, hoping beyond hope that someone would save him, because he was a staff favorite.
Hans is somewhere between 8 and 10 years old. Even though we know most families don’t want an older dog, we couldn’t turn this guy down and let him die just because he isn’t a young pup. How could we disregard a life still willing and able to give so much love?
Hans is a big boy, and still can play just like a pup! He is currently in a foster home, and gets along famously with all dogs big and small, as well as children! He is housebroken and knows how to shake your hand! Could you be the person or family to give this big guy the home he deserves?
male If you would like to meet Hans, 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.
