Nellie

Nellie had a congenital eye defect which had never been addressed by her previous family. She required immediate surgery to remove the residual of the impacted eye to reduce pain and prevent infection. Nellie also has a deep puncture wound on her head which also requires treatment. In addition, there is concern that her jaw may be broken or possibly malformed.

We have been inundated with ill and injured dogs in the last few weeks and our financial cupboard is bare. Can Nellie count on your support to help fund her needed surgery? Please find it in your heart to send a donation to help Nellie. Click on SPONSOR to send in your donation.

September 1 Update
Nellie’s surgery couldn’t wait any longer, so we took the leap of faith and promised to repay our vet as soon as the funds could be raised. While the surgery was successful, it was much more complex and longer than anticipated; much of the muscle behind the eye had to be removed in addition to the eye itself.

Fortunately, Nellie is feeling much better now and she’s told us she hates the “cone of shame”. Nellie loves the company of other sweet dogs and she plays with unbridled joy! We’re proud that we helped her feel better, but we need your help to pay her vet for his skills. Please click on DONATE and pledge a gift in any amount to help our Nellie-Belly. Thank 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.
