Meet Mitzi! Mitzi is a fun loving, active and friendly 2 year old female German Shepherd mix. She’s got a short, neat coat and a wonderfully expressive face. Your guess is as good as ours as to what other dog breed she is mixed with. Mitzi is full grown and weighs 41 lbs. Her first vet appointment confirms she is a healthy young gal.

One of our very own volunteers found Mitzi running the streets in their town. She had a long tattered leash attached to her, that also served as make shift collar. We think she was “running” for a little while because she devoured her food at first feeding. All of our efforts to locate her owner have failed…if ONLY Mitzi had been wearing an ID tag or a microchip!

Our volunteers just couldn’t bring themselves to turn her into the local shelter, where she would face an uncertain future. So, even though we are overflowing with orphans, we decided to make room for little Mitzi. Mitzi is currently in a foster home where she plays nicely with the large male German Shepherd dogs she is sharing her space with. She is house trained and loves to go on walks. She walks fairly well on a leash, but a refresher obedience training course couldn’t hurt.

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.
