Faithful and AppreciativeAdult home needed

Previous || Next

Rico’s owner walked up to a local free spay neuter/shot clinic and wanted to drop him off.  Poor Rico has been living on a chain in his back yard.    What a horrible life for a dog .

The people at the clinic were afraid this man would just leave the dog on the street so they called GSROC.

Rico has been with with GSROC working with our volunteers.  He is shy and unsure of people he does not know.   Once he realizes you are not a threat to him, he warms up.   He is loyal to those he trusts and will enjoy an adult home.


If you would like to meet Rico, 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 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.
