No small dogs

3 year old Lara landed in a high kill, crowded LA shelter.  When no one came for her, the shelter reached out to GSROC for help.   The shelter reports she gets along with other dogs and greeted people politely.

Lara is settling in at GSROC and looking forward to starting a new life.  She walks well on a leash and meets new people politely.   Stop to say hello and you are struck by how pretty she is.  She has dark coloring around her face which make her eyes look even more dramatic.

Lara gets along with other large dogs.  She would also enjoy being in a home as an only dog.  Lara likes people and will happily stay by your side if you want her to.  Stop to pet her or scratch behind her ears and she will lean against your leg and soak it up.

Lara was obviously used as a “breeding machine and cast off when no longer wanted.  We have promised to Lara that is all behind her!   She is now working on getting her girlish figure back.

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.
