Update 2/21/08
After months and months of waiting and hoping, Justice finally got the wonderful family that he deserved! We are thrilled that Justice will be a cherished family member with his very own little boy to look after! This miracle was only made possible through the devotion and support of hundreds and hundreds of animal lovers from all over the country who pulled together for Justice during his darkest hours. The big, strapping, beautiful boy that Justice is today is the perfect example of how rescue WORKS when we all work together for the benefit of our fellow creatures in need. From Justice and all of the volunteers at GSROC, thank you for never, ever EVER giving up on Justice!

Update 1/1/07
Thank you to everyone who has been following Justice’s story of recovery for all of these months. As a result of the hard work by our volunteers, and the wonderful donations and heartfelt prayers from our supporters, he is strong and healthy and ready to find a wonderful loving home. Justice will have permanent scarring as a result of the burns, but the wounds are healed over. We apply a special salve to his exposed skin every day to keep it from drying and cracking due to the sun as he does not have hair to protect him in a few places.

Justice is a very happy-go-lucky teenager. He reminds us of a 1 year old dog in a 3 year old dog’s body because he’s just so sweet and playful. A very devoted team of volunteers has been working with him on his manners and now he walks perfectly on a leash! He loves his regular walks, and just hamming it up by rolling in the grass. We think that Justice would enjoy having another large dog as a companion, but small dogs and cats…not so much!

Justice will require a physically STRONG caretaker as he is a powerhouse. Justice likes children but he would be too much for very young children because he’s so strong and kind of klutzy in an endearing way.

The person or family who adopts Justice will not only be getting a wonderful, devoted companion, they will be doing a great deed for a dog that has experienced the worst of humanity. Please help us to make the rest of Justice’s life so wonderful that he forgets about the horrors that he suffered before he came to us.




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.
