8 week old Lele was turned into a high kill shelter and was facing a death sentence. Her former family had not bothered to vaccinate her properly and now she is critically ill. A low cost medicine could have prevented this situation.
Without thinking twice, we welcomed this sweet puppy into GSROC’s rescue life boat. She is currently being treated with a combination of antibiotics, anti-diarrheal medication and IV fluids to help her flush the virus out of her tiny system. It’s critical to get ahead of the disease if there is any hope of recovery. We want to give little LELE every possible chance to beat this nasty ‘puppy killer’.
When GSROC commits to caring for an orphan, we believe that it is our responsibility to provide the very best of care available and to stay the course when an animal’s life is hanging in the balance. From many past experiences in combatting parvo, we know that we have approximately $2,500 in veterinary costs ahead of us. That seems like a daunting amount but once treatment is complete, this sweet puppy will have a long and happy life ahead of her.
We need your help to raise these emergency funds! What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to make at tax deductible donation that will truly SAVE A LIFE?
We have looked into Lele’s eyes and promised her that she will be better soon. Please help us to keep that promise by directing a gift in any amount to her veterinary needs!

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.
