Oreo’s skin and face were covered with oozing sores due to neglect. The shelter staff advised us that he was painfully thin when he was originally confiscated, but now he is putting on some much needed weight. His wounds are improving, but he is going to require ongoing care to repair the damage that was done by his cruel owners. We have been told that the skin condition is reversible through a regimen of treatments, so we are asking for your help to make it possible for us to care for Oreo. We have more dogs than ever in our hospital ward now, and we need your help to give Oreo the relief that he desperately needs.
UPDATE 5/26/07 Thanks to the devotion of his foster mom and dad, Oreo is improving each day. His sores are not as pronounced, and his raw little feet don’t look as swollen. He is no longer squealing in pain when he accidently gets excited and lands hard on his sore feet. Oreo’s personality is WONDERFUL! he loves to play with other dogs and he adores chidren! This is a fabulous dog that had a terrible start in life but bears absolutely no hard feelings. He just wants to give and get love…all the time!
Please take a look at Oreo’s hopeful little face and make a donation in any amount so that we can continue to provide him with the vet care that he needs. He is still receiving medicated baths and oral medication, and we expect this to continue for a few more weeks.

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.
