I've Had Training!I Have A Special Sponsor!Please Foster Me!No cats or small dogs

The kind animal lover couldn’t just leave Patches alone in the wilderness, so he took her home and had her scanned for a microchip. Viola! She had one, so he contacted the prior owner who told him, “Oh, we lost that dog a long time ago–we don’t want her back. We have a new dog now…”.

Poor Patches was considered as disposable by her heartless family. We have promised her that the family we find for her will treasure and love her through thick and through thin. She loves other dogs and play, play, play is her motto! Patches has had a little training but could definitely use a refresher. A home with another friendly dog would be ideal for this sweet girl.

Patches got her name because her fur is brittle and missing in some places, but we are working to restore her to her former beauty. We have no idea how long she was out roaming on her own, but her good nature and love for other dogs persevered.

Patches would LOVE to have a foster home where her skin could continue to improve. We provide the food and vet care, you provide the love and security for a dog in transition. To arrange to meet Patches, please complete the online application first and then contact for more details.

If you would like to meet Patches, 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.
