I Play Well With Others!I donated blood to a police K9!

Rommel was rescued just in the nick of time as he was hours away from being euthanized…

Rommel was adopted once from the shelter, by someone who wanted to use him as a guard dog and have him stay outside by himself all the time. Well, Rommel proved he was not happy with that situation, and escaped the yard several times. The owner thought Rommel wasn’t worth the effort, and returned him, knowing that he would only have a few days to find another home or face death.

We felt Rommel was definitely worth the effort! Rommel is a big, masculine guy, approximately 4 years old. He is good with other big dogs, and friendly with people. He rides wonderful in the car too! Obviously, he will need a secure yard, or someone who is home with him most of the time. Rommel needs to learn some leash manners, as he was probably never taken for walks. He bonds very quickly, and likes to “check” on you when you walk with him.

If you are interested in meeting Rommel, please complete an application online, and contact for more information.

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.
