Little Riley was on the euthanasia list at a high kill shelter. Why? Because he has a mysterious lump on his side. The shelter did not have the capacity to evaluate the lump—which we believe to be a harmless cyst. We couldn’t imagine letting a puppy with so much love for life, and for people, be killed for such an absurd reason, so we dashed over to the shelter to save his life.
We don’t know exactly what mix Riley is, but he is 100% loveable. He was dancing around the lobby of the vet hospital, making new friends. Riley will receive the best of care to identify what the lump is and if it is threatening his health, it will be removed.
In the meantime, Riley is desperately seeking a foster home. Do you know someone wonderful who could take this little love bug in? Fill out the Foster Application at GSROC to help Riley!

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.
