Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction. Roxanne is a prime example of why GSROC is so against puppy mills and backyard breeders. This girl was born out of state, shipped to California and landed in a pet store. She was purchased and went to a home.
Fast forward to one year later – she found herself being bred and she had a litter of puppies. A kind animal lover found her in the parking lot of an animal shelter. The person with her was giving her and her puppies away. Luckily for Roxanne, this person stepped in and then contacted GSROC.
Roxanne is safe with GSROC and is eagerly anticipating her new life. GSROC has promised her that her days of being used as a breeding machine are over.
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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
