I Like Kitties!I'm Gentle and Calm

Pepper was in horrific condition when his good samaritan found him. He had been living on his own and had not eaten well in a long time. He was near death, thin, filthy & had an open wound. She rushed him to her vet where he was promptly given the treatment he needed. After nursing him back to health, Pepper has emerged as a gentle, sweet boy.

She has asked GSROC to help find him a home that “will love and spoil him.” She reports he is housebroken, likes other dogs and is a wonderful companion. He is currently living with 2 cats and one dog.

His foster mom reports he ignores the cats and they sleep on the back of the couch right next to him. He stays quietly in the house with his foster doggie brother whenever she leaves to go to the store and patiently waits for her return.

He likes car rides and his favorite thing is to lay next to you and watch TV in the evening.

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.
