These two German Shepherds wandered into a local artist’s community last month. The residents fell in love but had to bring them to North Central Shelter in hopes an owner would step up. No one did. GSROC was contacted and told their sad story. Although we are currently stretched to the limit, one look at these 2 sad faces and we could not turn away.
We believe they may be father and son, or perhaps brothers?
The younger of the two, Jackson is extremely affectionate and sweet. We believe he is approximately 5 years old. The older one, Jasper is a bit shy at first but warms up. He is approximately 8-9 yrs old.
Both of these boys have lived a hard life. They have fly strike on their ears and are very thin. Our vet has examined them and started them on a special diet to increase their nutritional status.
They will need special supplements to improve their health along with additional testing to further assess their health. Please send your tax deductible pledge to GSROC.

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.
