We always shake our heads when we see innocent puppies like Noelle in large, noisy, overcrowded animal shelters. Somehow, this angel ended up with no where to turn. Enter GSROC! We know that we can help Noelle get back on track for a wonderful, happy and long life in a loving family!

Noelle is a typical cutie-patootie puppy who is inquisitive and playful…and a little bossy! She is good with the other dogs in her foster home and she is currently learning house manners. The lucky family or person who adopts Noelle must take her to basic obedience class in order to help mold her into a nice adult shepherd. Noelle will probably be a petite female when she is full grown.

Please think long and hard before you apply to adopt a puppy. Is your situation stable? Do you have the means and patience to care for a puppy this young? Can you look into the future and know that you will be there for her for her entire life? These are the questions you should ask yourself before you adopt any dog.

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.
