Pretty Shasta waited patiently for a long time in a crowded animal shelter, but nobody came for her. Shelter volunteers recognized her sweet nature and when they begged us to help, GSROC found space for this lovely, deserving creature.
Seasoned and savvy volunteers know that middle-aged and senior German Shepherds make superb companions. With their silly puppy years behind them, they are ready to settle down and enjoy whatever their people want to do. A walk in the park, a ride in the car, or an afternoon snooze are some of their favorite activities.
Shasta is no exception. She LOVES to walk and will remain politely by your side on a loose leash. She has a luxurious silver and cream coat and feels like a teddy bear when hugged. Shasta will sit for a treat but because she needs to shed a few pounds, she needs to cut back a bit on those! With regular exercise and a healthy diet, she will soon have her girlish figure back. She is friendly with other dogs her own size but we are not sure about cats yet.
Since she is new, we are still getting to know her and will update her profile as we learn more about her. If you are interested in meeting her, please complete the online application first anc then cotnact firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
