Here is our new girl, Rory. She is 6 months old, very gangly and long-legged. A teenager paid $1300 for her at a pet store, where he was told she would be euthanized if she did not sell her soon. He could not stand seeing her stuffed in a cage so he used his grandfather’s credit card to “rescue” her from the pet store. Grandpa intervened and found our rescue via the internet, and well…here she is!

Rory is healthy, remarkably smart, very sweet natured, and fine with cats. She is learning to sleep in a crate but not housebroken yet. She needs someone to teach her how to be a good dog, and she will flourish in any home.

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an application online.




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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
