Poor Kona was trembling and frightened at the animal shelter where she landed as a stray. No one came to claim Kona, and clearly she has never known good care or love. When Kona was slated for euthanasia simply because of her fearfulness, GSROC elected to intervene on her behalf. Surprisingly, the shelter staff tried to talk us OUT of rescuing her, but our volunteer held firm because this little spirit deserves at least a chance to thrive.

Kona is in a warm and safe and quiet environment with one of our foster families. We know that with some time and encouragement, she will come out of her shell and be the happy puppy that she was always meant to be. Watch for more updates on Kona’s progress!




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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
