No cats

9 year old Kara is a sweet lady who had the bad luck to end up with an uncaring owner.  After living with him for over 6 years,  she was unceremoniously  dumped in a very overcrowded high kill shelter.   The reason she was no longer wanted?  She got “Too Big”.   Yes – Too Big.

We have no idea how an adult female GSD can get “too big” since she was obviously already done growing by the time she became part of that family.   What we DO know is that Kara deserves better treatment than this.

She was totally bewildered by her surroundings and was so very happy to see our volunteer!  She hopped in the car and settled right down.  She knew better things were coming her way now that GSROC had saved her.

Kara was quite popular at a recent adoption event.  She bonded quickly with her handler and happily sat by her side greeting all visitors politely.    Her doggy driver’s license may say she is 8-9 year old, but Kara doesn’t think so.  She is lively and loves to go for walks.

She appears to like other dogs, walks well on a leash and is so looking forward to finding someone to love.  However, she has let us know she prefers a feline free home.

If you would like to meet Kara, 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.
