Sage was rescued from a crowded shelter with what we believed to be a broken leg. However, our orthopedic specialist confirmed that this was a birth defect, not a break after all. Sage was born with no cartilage in her front limb, so she can’t support herself on it. She is not in pain, but removing the leg can give her much greater mobility.
She is now in a GSROC foster home where she is being socialized with people and other dogs. Sage is a fun loving, sassy kind of girl. She loves to play and have fun.
We are determined to get Sage the care she needs, but we need to raise the funds for the vet care. Can you help us gather the funds needed? All donations, regardless of the amount are deeply appreciated.
female If you would like to meet Sage, 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.
