Senior sweetheart!Don't Overlook MePlease Foster Me!

Katie was fortunate enough to find a wonderful person of her own. She has lived contentedly for the past 6 years surrounded by love, but due to a family tragedy, she is back with us seeking love one more time. Please help us find Katie a wonderful home for her retirement years!

Katie is housebroken and affectionate. She is good with kids and adults alike. She prefers to be the only princess in your palace, and at her age, we think she has earned this privilege. Katie requires daily medication to help control her arthritis and joint stiffness, and we recommend a quality dog food with glucosamine and MSM as well to help keep her joints more flexible.

We are looking for a permanent foster home for Katie where she can rest on soft blankets and have someone who loves her. GSROC will pay all food and approved veterinary costs and there would be no adoption donation. We simply want Katie to know the warmth and comfort of a kind home for her golden years.

To arrange to meet Katie, please complete the online application first and then contact for more details about becoming a permanent foster home for Katie.

If you would like to meet Katie, 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 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.
