4 year old Renegade is a good looking boy who is a part of the Lancaster Lovables. Most likely, he has never known freedom, the doggy joy of exploring the woods, or going on walks with a family. You see, Renegade is one of the Lancaster Lovables, a group of dogs confiscated from a puppy mill during a law enforcement raid.

When our volunteers came to the shelter to pick up Renegade, he bounded over to the front of the run, tail wagging and ready to go! He realized freedom was at hand. Our volunteer was impressed by his friendly, sweet personality. Renegade hopped into her car, settled into the back seat and looked at her as if to say….”let’s get out of this place!”

Renegade is now safely with GSROC and is busily making friends with everyone he meets. He especially likes volunteers who share treats with him, as you can see in his photo. Doggy treats, pieces of cheese – Renegade loves them all. If you are willing to pet his head, scratch his ears and tell him how sweet he is – well, he will become your friend for life.

Well, unless you are a cat. Renegade has let us know he is not partial to cats – in fact, he tried to nip the one we introduced him to. So, he needs a feline free home.

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.
