When we came upon Monet among all of the barking, leaping, over-stimulated dogs at the county animal shelter, she was sitting quietly in her cage in spite of all the commotion. She was very confused at being homeless and in this scarey, strange setting. By no fault of her own, Monet was cast off when she was no longer a novelty–years past the adorable puppy stage, but far from being old.

Monet is a very pretty girl with classic shepherd markings. Unfortunately, her family left no information about her at the shelter, so we are having to learn what her likes and dislikes are one day at a time. Monet has plenty of love to give to a family that will show her that they won’t abandon her. She has requested a home with no kitties, please.

Please come and visit with Monet. We think she will win you over in no time! To arrange to meet Monet, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for more information.

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.
