Ryder

Aren't I cute?

Ryder landed in a crowded shelter and was quickly snapped up for adoption by a local family. Unfortunately, Ryder was also very hungry and, believe it or not, while being examined by the vet at the shelter, he managed to grab the exam glove from the tech’s hand and ate it! When his new adoptive family heard that news, they decided they no longer wanted him.

When we were contacted about Ryder, we did not hesitate. Our volunteer hopped in her car and drove out to spring this little guy. Ryder has successfully expelled the results of his exam glove snack and has gotten a clean bill of health.

He is now in a foster home and already working on charming his foster dad and the other dogs in his home. He is a happy guy, with big, soulful eyes. Be careful – this boy will capture your heart when he meets 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.
