Onyx is one of the Lancaster Lovables. These dogs were part of a puppy mill and were confiscated during a law enforcement raid. The majority of the dogs were kept in crate most of the time and were so happy to see our volunteers! We are now working with them as they discover the outside world and begin to enjoy their freedom.

Onyx has a beautiful short, black coat and appears very eager to please. She has a sweet, quiet personality and greets new people politely. Onyx likes to meet new dogs and will happily play with them if they are willing to do so.

Please remember, all puppies are sweet, cuddly and lots of fun. However, time and a commitment to training are needed to help puppies learn the necessary skills to become a great adult dog. Please take the time to consider if you are interested in taking on a project such as this. If not, then please consider one of our older, equally deserving dogs.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
