I am very sensitive

Leena is one of the Lancaster Lovables. This girl is one of the last ones languishing at the shelter after a recent puppy mill bust. GSROC worked very hard to make room for her in our lifeboat. We were not going to leave her behind!

Leena is now safely with GSROC and so happy to be here. Currently she is shy and unsure – like all Lancaster Lovables, everything is new to her and she is unsure when first meeting strangers. She seeks reassurance from her handlers and takes directions well. Leena wants to please – she just needs our help in realizing she is now safe and happiness is right around the corner.

At a recent adoption event, Leena met some of the other dogs from the Lancaster puppy mill bust. She became quite animated and excited – she recognized some of them as her former pals and was happy to see them.

Leena walks easily on a leash and enjoys car rides.

If you would like to meet Leena, 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.
