I Play Well With Others!I Love To Play!Please Foster Me!

Shanti was found as a stray, and sat at the local shelter for a month waiting for someone to take her home. Sadly, no one ever came for her. The shelter staff knew she was running out of time, and begged us to take this wonderful pup into our safety net.

Shanti is an absolute sweetheart and very lovable. She has a gorgeous black coat with tan feet and her ears have a split personality! She will make a very nice family dog as she has the kind of personality and temperament to get along with everyone! She is approximately 10 months to a year, and she is going to be a big girl. She is still growing into some really big feet!

If you are interested in meeting her, please contact and complete an application online.

If you would like to meet Shanti, 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.
