I Like Kitties!Volunteer Favorite!UPDATED BIO!

Maryanne is quite the charmer. She loves people and will happily lean against you to make sure you know she is there and she trusts you.

She is such a quick learner. She pays close attention when her trainer works with her, and this future ROC star loves to get kudos (and treats!) when she learns new skills. She is happiest when she is pleasing her people.

At a recent adoption event, Maryanne let everyone know how much she likes children. A young boy stopped to say hello to her – Maryanne instantly rubbed against him, asking for pats and love. She then proceeded to lean against him as if to say – “can I be your new friend?”

Recently, we introduced Maryanne to cats. We believe with proper introduction, she could live harmoniously with a cat.

Maryanne walks well on a leash and is ready to move on to more advanced training. She just needs a new family who will help her continue her education. We expect that Maryanne will fill out to be around 70 pounds at full size–she’s a little thin now, but with love and good nutrition, she will certainly blossom.

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.
