Don't Overlook Me

Murphy was originally rescued from a high kill shelter in 2011. We thought we had found this all-around good guy his forever home. Sadly,Murphy is back with us now and it appears that he was not well cared for. His once-beautiful ears have been nipped at by flies, he was covered with fleas, and he needs to slim down.

Murphy is a big guy with classic markings. It is clear that Murphy needs to trim up a bit, his former family must not have spent much time exercising him. He is ready to be your walking buddy and check out the sights.

GSROC has promised him that good times are coming in his way! We have whisked him off to the doggy spa to get a very much needed bath and “mani/pedi”. We would also like to get his teeth cleaned so they can be all sparkly and white as well.

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.
