Our most recent rescue is sweet Penny and her 8 newborn puppies. This poor momma dog was forced to give birth in a dirty yard with no protection from 110 degree heat. Her family didn’t even provide her with a blanket, let alone shelter!

Penny did her best to care or her brood, digging a hole to find cooler soil. A devoted rescuer learned of the situation and rushed out to help. She found the 4-day-old babies, with eyes still closed, strewn all over the yard, and momma in distress at being so helpless. We cannot imagine what kind of family would allow animals to suffer like this, but we learned that this was not Penny’s first litter!   Of course, we did not hesitate, we rushed to make room for this little family in our lifeboat.

Can Penny count on your support?  Funds will be needed for these babies and of course Penny.  Vet exams, neutering surgeries, flea and tick medicine and all those puppy vaccinations.  All donations, regardless of the amount are needed.  Thank you.

If you would like to meet Penny, 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.
