7 year old Louie was the apple of his affluent family’s eye. They bragged about his pedigree, and the thousands of dollars they spent on him for his background and subsequent training. He was their “baby.” Then, everything changed when the human baby arrived. Louie was banished to the back yard by no fault of his own (he loves kids).
His health began to deteriorate, but the family didn’t care. They fed him out of disposible foil pans because they didn’t want to get ‘germs’ from a proper bowl of his own. They told us “he stinks” so he was not allowed in their car to go to the vet. Although they had the means, they did not spend them to bring a mobile vet or mobile groomer to care for Louie. It seemed that Louie was destined to live out the rest of his lonely life in pain and solitude.
We became aware of Louie’s dire situation by someone who had known Louie in his early years and had recently learned of this change of fate. She immediately reached out to us for help.
We have whisked him out of the horrible home and he is being evaluated by our vet. Funds are needed for his treatment. Antibiotics, medicated baths, special medications for his skin treatments are all needed. GSROC’s budget is already stretched very thin and we need your help to take on this challenge.

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.
