Senior sweetheart!Volunteer Favorite!Please Foster Me!

Quest is a truly special boy. We have no idea how this beautiful, well mannered senior ended up in a very high kill animal shelter, but he managed to “talk his way out” by calling out to our volunteer. Quest is huge and seemingly well bred boy. He makes great eye contact and cocks his head to listen to you.

Quest has some arthritis in both of his knees but his hips are fairly sound. He loves people big and small, not so much cats though. He LOVES to play ball, and plays really nice with the ball. He knows basic commands and wants to please. He is fine with other non aggressive dogs.

In the words of our volunteers….He is a WINNER.

Quest is looking for a retirement home where he can just kick back and relax with his owners and enjoy watching the world go by. He doesn’t ask for much–just a warm place to lay his head and loving care. Could you make Quest your special boy?

Quest is also in need of a sponsor to offset the high cost of his boarding needs ($330 per month). Can you make a donation in any amount to help Quest pay his rent? Simply click on DONATE and indicate that your gift is for Quest.

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.
