Samson was the lucky winner of the GSROC ‘get out of jail free’ card when our shelter scout went to rescue another dog from that facility. Samson successfully drew our volunteer’s attention over to his cage and convinced her that he deserved a chance to LIVE. When the volunteer took him out of his cage to evaluate him, Samson plunked into her lap as if to say, “Now what are you gonna do?”

Samson has good inter-canine skills and he would do well with a doggie playmate. He would love to romp and wrestle with someone his own size, but he might play a little too roughly for smaller dogs. We think Samson is between 18 months and 2 years old. He has beautiful markings and a big, sappy smile!

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
