I'm very confidentI Need An Experienced OwnerNo cats or small dogs

When her time was running out, shelter staff made a special plea for this young girl to be rescued.

Maxi is drop dead gorgeous and she knows it. Whomever had her previously let her get away with a lot of bossy behavior, which didn’t do her any favors. She is quick and incredibly alert–constantly watching all that is going on around her. We think that Maxi would do well in active pursuits that challenge her mind and body but she must be an only dog in her home.

Maxi does best in calm, orderly surroundings with a solid routine that she can depend on so that she doesn’t have to make any decisions on her own. She is very athletic and has a beautiful gait when she runs. She loves to learn and is very responsive to leadership.

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.
