I Like Kitties!Volunteer Favorite!

GSROC received a call from another rescue organization asking for help. Rocky and Sassy were left behind 2 months ago due to foreclosure. The owner would come by to feed them but as time went by, her visits became less often. They weren’t getting fed every day and had no protection outside. The weather kept getting colder, rain and snow made this rescue more and more desperate. With the help of other animal lovers, we were able to get them safe and warm just in time for Christmas. Now they just need a loving and caring home. They don’t have to be placed together.

Rocky is a sable male German Shepherd and his birth date is approximately 5/15/2009. He is good with kids, cats, even baby kittens and other dogs. He’s also housebroken. We were told someone tried to break into his family’s home while the single mother and child were home about 6 months ago. Rocky was beaten while trying to protect his family. He couldn’t move for a few days but has recovered and is just fine. Due to the beating, he’s a little shy around men until he gets to know them.

Since they just arrived on 12/18 we will update their bios as we get to know them better. Also stand by for more pictures.

In the meantime, if you would like to meet Rocky, please go on-line and fill out the application or you can contact

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.
