Stay tuned for Shay’s bio as we get to know him better.

First report during the transport from the Shelter to the Boarding Facility is that Shay is a little shy. He’s a big boy that is just bewildered by his circumstances. He takes direction from his sister Autumn and once he gets to know you and knows his sister is safe, he warms right up. He even gave kisses of graditude to the Volunteers on his new journey to happiness.

Shay definitely takes direction from his sister and won’t let her out of his site. They’re totally bonded to one another and we want to place them together.

They are both in excellent condition and as we learn more about them, we will update their bio’s.

They share a run together in the Boarding Facility and can’t wait to find their forever home. If you would like to meet them, please fill out the on-line application and/or e-mail JOHNANDEBHANCOCK@AOL.COM with questions.

If you would like to meet Shay, 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.
