Please Foster Me!No cats or small dogs

Ruger was left in the backyard in Fontana after his previous owners moved away.  A kindhearted neighbor took him in and their daughter in law recognized him from the Banfield veterinary clinic where she works.  The original rescuer was unable to keep him and thru a series of phone calls, GSROC opened up a space for him.

Ruger is confused and a little worried about his new circumstances but is very friendly.  Approach him to say hello, and Ruger will gently give you a quick sniff and a tale wag.   He is hoping to meet someone who is interested in offering him a home of his very own.

Told by the rescuer that with proper introductions he does well with other dogs.  Ruger is three, neutered and up to date with shots.

Recently we introduced him to a cat.  He viewed the cat as a potential snack and tried to bite it.  Based on this reaction we will not place him in a home with a cat.

If you would like to meet Ruger, 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 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.
