UPDATE: MARCH 20
A reckless breeder allowed Simba and her twin sister to roam the streets loose and get exposed to every sort of contagious disease. Sadly, Simba’s sister did not survive a case of Parvo, but Simba is a fighter. German Shepherd Rescue of OC is committed to pulling this baby through but we need your help. Please help with a donation of any amount to offset Simba’s rising vet care costs!

UPDATE: APRIL 15
Simba has recovered from Parvo and she is recuperating in a loving foster home. We have seen a wonderful improvement in Simba since she went into her foster home! She is growing like a weed and building her social skills. She will do best in a quiet environment with someone who is willing to continue her obedience training.

To arrange to meet Simba, please complete the online application and then contact Dforsyth@socal.rr.com for more details.




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.
