Honestly, we don’t make up these stories – Meet Marley. He is a 2 year old who was found wandering in a neighborhood. The finder was able to contact the owner. You would think that would be a happy ending, right? Nope! The owner said they no longer wanted the dog and not to bring him back!
Stunned, this kind animal lover contacted GSROC for help. Marley is now safe with us and we are getting to know him. He is a gorgeous boy who likes people and other dogs. He spent time with young children and does fine with them.
Marley is a puppy in a big body. He doesn’t think of himself as big and his exuberance sometimes causes issues. It is obvious his previous home didn’t bother to teach him how to handle excitement, as he jumps when he gets excited. He must have been left alone often as he gets anxious when alone, so Marley will do best in a home with another dog and where people are there frequently.
Recently we introduced Marley to a cat. We believe, with proper introduction, he may be able to live with a cat.
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.
