8 year old Koda has not been treated well by her former home and deserves better. She had been found on the street by GSROC a few months ago. She was lost and GSROC posted signs and found her owners. Her family was grateful for her return. GSROC thought it was a happy ending and case was closed.
Fast forward a few months and we learn that Koda had been taken to a crowded shelter and left there by her family! We were stunned and could not turn our back on Koda. We made room in our lifeboat for Koda and she is now safe with us.
This sweet girl was suffering from giardia and had a mass near her eye. She needed immediate treatment and the mass needed to be removed. Obviously, we had not planned for this expense, but we could not turn our backs on Koda either. She has had the surgery to remove the mass and is now ready to start her new life.
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.
