Once Schatzie arrived at GSROC we rushed her to the hospital and she is currently being cared for with loving hands. It makes us SO angry that someone let something his terrible happen to a puppy—or any creature.
Schatzie needs regular bandage changes for her wounds, as well as antibiotics, parasite treatment and when she is healthy enough, vaccines and spaying. She is currently hospitalized but would benefit tremendously from a foster home that can keep her wounds dry.
GSROC provides all support for foster homes, including approved vet care, food, treats and toys. You provide the love and safe haven for our recovering babies.
Can you or someone that you know help Schatzie?
All donations, regardless of the amount are needed for Schatzie’s ongoing care.
Please visit and click on DONATE if you can pledge a tax-deductible gift to help this precious puppy.
Our coffers have taken some very hard hits recently with so many dogs in desperate straits. Thank you!

If you would like to meet Schatzie, 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.
