Sasha, a beautiful 6 year old girl, managed to open the gate at her home and get out. She was hit by a car and her leg was crushed. After a complicated and lengthy surgery, our vet was able to save the leg. Sasha will require 4 weeks of very strict crate rest so that her leg can heal properly. Her great disposition and loving nature showed us that someone had taken good care of her.
UPDATE: As we investigated further, we learned that Sasha had been turned into the animal shelter by her family because they did not have the resources to repair her leg. The family has 3 children, one with special needs, and Sasha was his constant companion. The family did not want Sasha to suffer and they felt that euthanasia was their only option. By sheer luck, German Shepherd Rescue OC was in the right place at the right time and we were able to help Sasha. We plan to return her to her family once she is in stable enough condition for her to go home. Watch for more updates coming soon!
UPDATE 4/10 Today was the joyous day that Sasha was returned to the family that thought they would never see her alive again! The reunion was heartwarming and Sasha was overjoyed to see her kids again. Sasha’s family must keep her on crate rest in order for her leg to mend properly. They have promised to follow the doctor’s orders strictly, and they have already repaired the gate so that Sasha will never get out again!

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.
