I Like Kitties!I have special needs

4 year old Ivy found herself lost and alone.  Picked up by animal control, she landed in a crowded high kill shelter at one of the business times of the year.    Once again, noisy fireworks have claimed its next victim.

Ivy was so happy to see our volunteer.  She wanted out of that noisy place!  She hopped right into the car and quietly relaxed.  Her sweet nature quickly won over our hearts.   She likes people and enjoys being petted.  Ivy does not feel like that about other dogs however.  She prefers to spend her time with people rather than other dogs.    Ivy will do best in a quiet environment with a high fence.

Ivy had a condition that was untreated by her previous owners.  This has left her with very poor vision.   She is fearful in open situations but in her own home she relaxes and is very happy.  She would love to be in a home of her very own.   Please consider fostering or adopting Ivy..  She has so much love to give.

She enjoys car rides and has good leash skills.

If you would like to meet Ivy, 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.
