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 for more details.

If you would like to meet Lona, 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.
