I Play Well With Others!Volunteer Favorite!I have special needs

Harlow came to our attention thanks to the kindness and compassion of a local veterinarian. A fluoroscopy and subsequent tests revealed that she had a birth defect related to her heart. It took us a long time, but we were able to raise the money to correct the heart situation and Harlow is a bouncy, happy, silly pup. She will always require a soft diet of liquid food as her esophagus was not fully developed and she could choke on harder foods. For someone who doesn’t think that a pet with special dietary needs is a big deal, Harlow would be an excellent companion! You would never know that this fiesty little kid ever had heart surgery! She runs and plays and wrestles with the other dogs in her foster family.

Harlow is housebroken and walks well on a leash. She is good with her basic commands (when her puppy attention span allows her to be!). She is a special girl deserving of a very special home. Can you open your heart to Harlow?

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.
