Osa and her male companion ended up in a crowded shelter waiting for their family to pick them up. The Shelter contacted the owner but they never showed up. They said they didn’t have enough money to bail them out and stated Osa may be pregnant. It is so hard to believe this family just didn’t care what happened to their loyal dogs.
Osa’s companion was adopted but poor Osa was left behind in the frightening shelter. When GSROC heard about her story and the possibility of giving birth in a shelter, we couldn’t bear to leave her behind. We rescued her and took her straight to our Vet for an exam. As it turns out she’s not pregnant but has a urinary infection and is very thin.
Even though Osa is too thin at the moment, she will be a big girl probably weighing 85 lbs. She can sit and shake and probably gets along with dogs her own size. Once we get to know her better, we will update her bio.
If you would like to learn more about her please fill out the on-line application or contact JOHNANDEBHANCOCK@aol.com.
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.
