One year old Macy landed in a high kill shelter at the worst time of year – the 4th of July holiday weekend! She had escaped from her yard and was picked up as a stray. Her owner elected not to bail her out, so she found herself alone in a scary high kill shelter.
We are not certain how she incurred the many deep wounds on her face–she may have been trying to escape from an enclosure, or could have been in a dog fight while on the run. Macy is also missing 2 or 3 teeth near the place where her mouth was gauged, but our vets have reassured us that she can adjust to this.
Can Macy count on you for help? She has such a beautiful face and with good care, she can be restored to her former beauty…However, she will need stitches and costly antibiotics as part of her treatment regimen.
UPDATE 7/14/13 Macy is no longer in the hospital. She is relaxing in a boarding kennel as she awaits adoption. She continues to receive antibiotic and topical treatments. Macy would do so much better if she was in a foster home. Can you provide her with a safe place to stay?
All donations, regardless of the amount are greatly appreciated. Can she count on you?
female If you would like to meet Macy, 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.
