I Like Kitties!I'm Gentle and CalmSPECIAL UPDATE!

This poor senior girl was living with a homeless person who routinely beat her. When this was witnessed by other homeless persons in the area, they intervened to save her.

The best shelter this group of concerned people who saved her could offer her was a rundown chicken coup with a dirt floor, but their hearts were in the right place. Prior to that, Misty had been forced to coexist not only with her abusive owner, but also with some tough street dogs. Misty’s rescuers were worried for her safety, so the chicken coup was the only shelter available.

Misty is a sweet, submissive female. She likes cats and other dogs. When she was rescued, she leaned up against the people as if to say thank you. She has had xrays, blood work and a health check. She will require expensive joint medication for her comfort (Adequan injections and oral medication as well). She has advanced arthritis and we would like to get her acupuncture treatments with your help.

If you are interested in meeting Misty, please complete an online application and an adoption counselor will contact you. If you can help Misty with her vet care needs, please click on DONATE and pledge a gift in any amount.

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.
