Please Sponsor My TrainingUPDATED BIO!No cats or small dogs

2 yr old Joe is ready to be your new BFF. He has a gorgeous, thick plush coat. He was dumped in a high kill shelter with very little hope for a happy holiday ending.

Joe is very intelligent and likes to learn new things. He has promised to listen carefully and learn all the right doggie skills so he will grow into a stunning dog of looks and talent. All he needs is a family who is willing to help him get there. A typical teenager, Joe needs to learn some basic obedience to become a well-mannered adult dog. Our volunteers are working with him to achieve this.

Recently we introduced Joe to a cat and he let us know that cats and small dogs are not on his list of acceptable companions. However, he would love a canine companion that is his size or larger–a dog willing to play rough and tumble with.

If you would like to meet Joe, 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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
