This female is starting a new life with GSROC so we have christened her Renata – meaning “re-born”.   She injured herself on a fence and was relinquished to the shelter when her family decided they could not afford the treatment needed to treat her injuries.   The shelter staff was so taken with her sweet personality, they decided to fix the injury themselves. and landed in a high kill shelter.  Her wound has healed nicely and we wanted to ensure she got a new start.

Renata is about 3 years old and so happy to see our volunteer!  She hopped right into her and quickly sat right down.  She was ready for her freedom ride!

According to the shelter staff, Renata gets along well with dogs her size and has not been tested with smaller dogs.   She requires a home with a secure fence and will thrive in a home willing to spend time completing her training.  Her former family states she is good with children.

At a recent adoption event she was a very polite girl.  She was unreactive to small dogs walking by, but did bark at other high energy dogs that walked by.  We think she likes things calm and quiet and didn’t particularly appreciate noisy dogs interrupting her pleasant day.


If you would like to meet Renata, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
