UPDATE: SEPT, 2021 – RUDY is doing so much better.  He was discharged to a GSROC foster home and has completed his last round of meds.  He likes to play and have fun with his brother Ricky.

5 month old Rudy is in grave shape.   He was found when a hoarders’ dogs were confiscated by the authorities.  These dogs had been living outside in the heat without water, food or shade!   To say the conditions were horrific is a gross understatement.

Rudy is lethargic, dehydrated and (we have now determined) has PARVO.   The chips appear to be stacked against him – but Rudy is fighting to stay alive.  As long as he is willing to do so, we are determined to help him.   After all – he is only a baby!   We have been faced with other dogs in this situation and have helped nurse them back to health.  We believe Rudy deserves the same chance.

UPDATE: SATURDAY – Still in critical condition, still in the hospital. Made it through another night but still not bright and alert. We may be forced to insert a feeding tube if he doesn’t eat on his own soon. Currently being syringe fed by vet techs.

The estimate for his emergency care is expensive – but we are hoping we can count on our followers for support.    We need to raise $5500.00 at this point.   Can Rudy count on your donation?

If you would like to meet Rudy, 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.
