Faithful and AppreciativePlease Sponsor My Training

Sahara is one lucky girl. One of our eagle-eyed volunteers saw this girl running on the freeway and stopped to rescue her. With the help of CHP, she was able to wrangle her into her car to safety!

All attempts to find the owner were exhausted, and now this girl is looking for a new home. She is very sweet and affectionate, giving lots of love to all who know her. Sahara has a beautiful black and red coat and weighs in around 70 pounds.

Sahara is eager for someone to call her own. She is enrolled in basic obedience training and she is picking things up quickly. Sahara is a happy girl who would enjoy having another dog as a companion. We believe she potentially could live with cats.

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an online application and then contact for more information.

If you would like to meet Sahara, 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.
