It appears that Ruby had been abandoned up in the local mountains. A resident heard her howling at the bottom of her driveway and went to investigate. It was bitterly cold that night and the resident moved Ruby into her garage for warmth.
One look at Ruby and it becomes apparent she has not had an easy life. Her coat is dull, brittle and dirty. Her nails are so long, it is difficult for her to walk. Our hearts broke when we heard her story.
We have been inundated with dogs needing our help and we are financially strapped. However, we could not turn our backs on this gentle dog who certainly did not deserve to be left to die in the cold.
Can you please help us fund her vet care? She needs a complete assessment, de-worming, vaccinations and lab tests. In addition, it appears that her foot may be injured, so xrays and examination will be required.

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.
