Faithful and AppreciativeI'm ShyPlease Foster Me!

We are overflowing with beautiful, deserving, loving shepherds but Lyka’s sad eyes and quivering legs got to us. She had obviously been someone’s beloved friend at one time, but there she was, cold and scared in a cement run with hundreds of other dogs barking around her. She doesn’t understand why her family suddenly tossed her away.

Lyka has just arrived so we are learning more about her. We suspect that she was relegated to someone’s back yard and now the entire world is new to her. We are desperately seeking a foster home for Lyka! She still quakes with fear in her boarding kennel, but once she is out, she is a playful and happy girl. Can you help by opening up your heart to her while she searches for her forever family?

To arrange to meet Lyka, please complete the online application first and then contact 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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
