We discovered Lona languishing in a cold, cement cell at an animal shelter and we knew that we had to save her. She is a beautiful girl who asks for so very little in order to be happy: A warm bed, a full tummy, and gentle strokes of her face mean so much to her. Lona is a tall girl with a big frame. She likes other dogs and she likes kids. Lona is a little stiff from arthritis, but with her daily supplements, she gets along well.

Lona would make a perfect companion for a senior person who wants someone to love and to receive love from, or for a family who just has a huge heart for the senior dogs. Please don’t overlook her just because she’s a ‘golden oldie’! She has so much love left to give!

To arrange to meet Lona, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for more details.




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.
