One year old Onyx was found wandering in a local neighborhood with no tags or ID.   This is becoming more and more common unfortunately.  Luckily for Onyx, a kind animal lover stepped in and brought her to safety.  She was impressed by Onyx’s sweet personality.  However, she was unable to keep her as she already has a number of pets herself.   She contacted us for help.

Now that we have spent time with Onyx, we agree!   This petite girl is happy, playful and views everyone as her new best friend.  Other dogs?  Yep, Onyx figures they will be her friend forever once they start to play.  Children?  Onyx knows they will be great playmates and she is ready to make friends.

Onyx is still somewhat of a baby – she is only one year old and her former home didn’t bother to teach her many doggy skills. .  She has pretty good leash skills and is eager to learn more.  She wants to impress you with what she can learn – all she needs is someone to show her the way.

If you would like to meet Onyx, 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.
