Our volunteers work so hard to find great homes for each and every one of our dogs, so we take it very hard when an adoption fails. Kraemer was adopted out of our rescue in 2004 and thankfully, he had a GSROC microchip as an invisible form of ID. When Kraemer ended up in an animal shelter, the shelter contacted the person listed on the microchip information, only to find that the phone number had been changed, the address was no longer current, and there was no way to locate the person. Our own attempts to track the adopter down came up dry as well, so, sadly, Kraemer is homeless once again. We feel so badly for Kraemer because we thought we had found him his forever family.

Kraemer is a high energy boy who needs an active lifestyle. As we get reacquainted with him, we will update his profile and share more information.

Kraemer is in a boarding facility and desperately seeking someone to help offset the costs of his daily care. If you can assist with a donation in any amount, please indicate that your gift is for Kraemer.




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.
