UPDATE!  MARCH, 2020 – Milo is improving every day.  He is in the good care of a loving foster family, where he receives 3 medicated baths every week.  He is feeling much better and his playful nature is coming through.  The open sores are resolving, and soon tufts of fur will be popping up.  We are so grateful to everyone who has helped us to fight for Milo’s life!


12 month old Milo was suffering from starvation and mange that had been untreated for a very long time. He was living on the streets with no one to care for him.  When he begged for food from local merchants, one hit him in the head so viciously – he needed immediate treatment!

When we saw his photos, we knew we had to step in to save him.   How could anyone turn away from this poor dog?   Milo needs extensive treatments that will be costly but we are determined to help him.  He needs costly antibiotics, IV fluids and medicated baths to help his skin condition.

All donations, regardless of the amount are desperately needed to help Milo.  Can he count on your support?



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.
