Please take a second look at me.Please Foster Me!

Shadow was an owner turn in from South Central LA. Neighbors pressured the owner to provide her with proper care but instead, he discarded her at an overcrowded shelter. Shadow had the misfortune of being housed in a kennel with a very large pit bull, so she was traumatized even further.

Here is a video of her in the shelter:

Now, 3 weeks later, Shadow has relaxed and realizes that we are here to help her. She has gained some much needed weight and her coat looks great. Shadow likes kitties but she doesn’t like small dogs–they irritate her. She would make a wonderful companion for someone with another friendly shepherd, or for someone who wants only one dog. She will remain petite in build, probably topping out around 65 pounds in good weight. Please don’t overlook Shadow–she needs a new beginning.

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.
