Can You Please Help Me?Please fill my piggy bank!

6 year old Mufasa was living in less than desirable conditions when GSROC heard of his plight.  We made room for him in our lifeboat and are getting to know him.


One of our volunteers observed Mufasa in severe distress.  We have rushed him to the emergency vet for immediate treatment.  We have been informed that he has BLOAT – which can be fatal if not treated immediately.   He was rushed to surgery to save his life.   We are stunned by this turn of affairs.   Currently we have another dog diagnosed with PARVO who is fighting for his life – and now this.  Our piggy bank needs help!

The surgery was completed successfully and Mufasa is being monitored.  He still requires IV treatments and has no appetite at this time.  He is lethargic and is kept pain free.  He will require continued care at this time.

All donations, regardless of the amount are desperately needed.


If you would like to meet Mufasa, 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.
