2 year old Ruby landed in a crowded shelter in Kern county during a recent wildfire. As the fires worsened, the shelter needed assistance to free up space for other pets that were being displaced by the fire.

GSROC stepped up to save this girl, even though she was suffering from mange at the time. All that is behind her now. Thanks to the support of our donors and a loving GSROC foster home, she has conquered her skin condition. She is one pretty girl now.

She shares her foster home with a pug, some cats and a GSD. Of all her potential friends, the german shepherd is the one least interested in playing. That doesn’t stop our Ruby! She has made friends with the pug and romps with him as much as possible. When the pug is worn out, Ruby goes to check on the cats to see if they will join in her games. However, she does not take no for an answer from the cats – so we believe a home without cats would probably be best.

Ruby is working on her doggy skills and walks easily on a leash. She loves car rides and is always ready to go for a quick trip with her family. She likes to explore and discover newt things with her people. Ruby will enjoy an active family who will continue her training so she can develop into the wonderful dog she is destined to be. She would love a home with another playful dog as this girl has lots of energy.

If you would like to meet Ruby, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
