I Love Children!

Maui is the perfect dog! She is housebroken, she rides beautifully in the car, she is well behaved and calm, AND she loves children. Maui was so wonderful during her time in the animal shelter that the shelter workers were taking her out as a pet therapy dog in training–her job was to make children who were sick feel better.

This black and red girl is going to make someone an incredible soul mate. She is sweet, sensitive, forgiving and loyal. We are asking a minimum adoption donation of $400 plus $25.00 for Maui with these funds being directed to the surgical needs of Traveler, a puppy who requires life-saving surgery to repair his heart.

As we learn more about Maui, we will update her profile. To arrange to meet her, please complete the online application first and then contact for more information.

If you would like to meet Maui, 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.
