I Play Well With Others!Please Foster Me!

Rookie is a 10 month old boy who landed in a very crowded, high kill shelter. This boy is full of fun and loves to play and romp. He didn’t understand how he could have ended up in a place with few positive alternatives. GSROC rushed to save this happy guy.

Rookie is a friendly guy who can’t wait to start obedience training so he can polish his doggy skills. He rides well in the car and makes doggy friends easily.

Please think long and hard if you are considering adopting a puppy. They are lovable, cuddly and cute. However, they are also filled with an unlimited amount of curiosity and energy. As they grow, they MUST have training in order to develop into the great dog they are genetically programmed to be. If you can’t provide the extensive time and commitment needed for this, then please consider an older dog

We are looking for a home that will be willing to invest the time and dedication it will take to help Rookie develop into the wonderful dog he is destined to become.

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.
