After failed attempts to capture this injured boy early in the day, one of our volunteers found him later in nearby bushes in so much pain that he was unable to move.
At the emergency vet, he was diagnosed with a fractured pelvis, and substantial bruising on his chest that caused a pneumothorax. Mosby had no collar or microchip, and there has been no one looking for him via signs, humane or social media sites.
It was Mosby’s lucky day when he was found by a rescuer who was able to secure him a special spot on the GSROC lifeboat! Mosby has had a very big surgery to relieve his pain, but he is still on crate rest. He needs pain meds and assistance with walks, and our volunteers do physical therapy with him every day.
Mosby is a good natured, friendly labrador who deserves a home of his own. Can you help by making a spot for this survivor in your home? Please submit an online application and then come to meet our funny fellow.
male If you would like to meet Mosby, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.
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.
