We received dozens of pleas from all over the state to help June. Her sad eyes said it all. Even though we know that it takes a special individual to adopt a senior dog, we couldn’t turn our backs on this loyal companion. Named for the month that her new life will begin, June has already earned the devotion of our volunteers. June has told us that she wants to be the only canine queen in her castle, but in return, some lucky person will have a true friend.
June is active and plays with toys. She loves to go for walks but she could use some work on her leash manners. Her ideal home would be as a single dog with a retired person, senior citizen, or someone who is home a great deal.
UPDATE: June 20
Since June’s rescue, we learned that she had a rather large mass on her chest and our wonderful vet, Dr. Earl, successfully removed not one but FOUR large tumors. The tumors were so big that it required that a 5″ x 14″ piece of skin be removed from June’s abdomen. June is recovering in the hospital and she is expected to be back on her feet in a couple of weeks.
UPDATE: July 15
June is recovering from her surgery in a cozy foster home. She is grateful for every small kindness, and she is making great progress. We know that it will take a special person to adopt a senior girl, but if you are looking for a loyal, affectionate companion, don’t pass up this gem! She loves to give kisses to let you know how special you are! We are asking a $300 adoption donation plus $25 donation for microxchip fee.

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.
