I Like Kitties!I Need A Playmate!Please Foster Me!

Schatzie was found by a good samaritan when leaving the house to take his daughter to school. Schatzie was in their front yard and when the daughter saw her, she started crying.

Schatzie appeared to be badly injured. They thought she had been shot in the head because she had a deep puncture wound and her eye was bulging. We received the frantic call asking for help. Because time was of the essence, we told the good samaritan to get her to our Vet immediately.

After x-rays and examination, the Vet thinks she was attacked by another animal. Schatzie is recovering nicely from her injuries and her eye will be fine thanks to her two guardian angels who found her and reacted immediately.

Schatzie is brand new and we’re getting to know her personality. What we do know so far is that she’s a very happy and friendly girl. She’s great with people and appears to be friendly as well with other dogs. At a recent adoption event, she kept trying to engage the other dogs in play! She has a beautiful sable coat and will probably be about 80 lbs. as she is a big-boned girl.

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.
