I Play Well With Others!

We were contacted by a humane society in Indiana that one of our dogs had landed in the shelter there….in Indiana!!! The microchip information led Riley back to us!

Regrettably, Riley was placed several years ago, and we believe the original owner gave this dog to someone else, who in turn took the dog to a shelter when they could no longer care for her!!! Very much against all of our policies! People ask us why we have such an extensive process to adopt one of our dogs… It’s to avoid situations like this from occurring more often!

One of our out-of-state volunteers jumped in her car and drove 8 hours both ways to get Riley and her little pal that she was turned in with, “Doyle”. Riley loves dogs of all sizes and she is affectionate with all humans.

If you would like to meet Riley, 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 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.
