5 year old Poncho lived his entire life in a back yard cluttered with dilapidated old cars and piles of of waste.  His family allowed him to breed many litters before deciding that they no longer wanted him.   GSROC heard of this poor boy and made room in our lifeboat for him.

Our volunteers have worked closely with Poncho to increase his confidence.  He was very timid and shy at first but has gradually learned that there is a big world out there filled with new adventures.   He now walks well on a leash and will thrive in a quieter home willing to provide him with love and security.    A home with a retired couple who are looking for a constant companion may be ideal for this boy.    He promises to provide his new family with love and loyalty.

Recently, we introduced Poncho to a cat.  We believe with proper supervision and introduction, Poncho may be able to live with an experienced cat.

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.
