I'm Special!Please Foster Me!

Orville is a 4 month old little boy who was picked up by a stray and landed in a local shelter. He may be small in stature, but he is BIG on charm. Somehow, he managed to convince our volunteer that he belonged with the big dogs at GSROC. We are not sure exactly what he told our volunteer, but it worked!

Orville is safe now with GSROC and looking forward to finding a home of his own. He is looking for a family that enjoys little dogs who are big on spirit. He has lots of love in that little body and can’t wait to lavish it on his new family.

Orville is a mix of terrier and perhaps corgi. He will remain a smaller guy – but he wants everyone to know – don’t count him out because of his size!

If you would like to meet Orville, 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.
