Cute, little Maya is a mostly German Shepherd puppy that was found sitting on the cold cement floor of an overcrowded animal shelter. How could her first family give up on her after only 3 short months?! She’s just a baby!

We promised Maya that this won’t ever happen to her again. She deserves better! Remember, puppies are a lot of work and need a lot of attention, training and socialization. Please only complete an online application if you are prepared to commit to Maya for the next 10 – 12 years of your life.

UPDATE Sept. 15, 2007

After 3 short months, Maya has come back to us. It appears her adoptive family did not have enough time for this wonderful girl and realized she deserved better. Maya loves to play with other dogs and was good with the cats and young children in her most recent home.

Will you be willing to give this fun-loving gal her second chance?

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
