When we learned about Jackson’s plight, we knew that he didn’t deserve to die just because his previous owners left an ear infection untreated. Jackson–Jack to his friends–developed a hematoma (blood clot) on his ear from shaking his head to relieve the pain that he was experiencing. He is definitely a victim of neglect. We are treating his infection and Jack will soon undergo surgery to remove the lump on his ear. His beautiful shepherd ear will never look quite the same, but his personality isn’t diminished and his spirit is loving and happy.

Jack has just arrived so we will update his bio shortly. Please check back for more information. If you are able to make a small gift to help offset the expense of his ear surgery, it would be most appreciated. Please click on our DONATE button to learn how you can make a tax deductible contribution on line.

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.
