I'm a "velcro dog"!I Need A Playmate!

Sloopy was shaking and shivering in a crowded public animal shelter when a kind shelter scout advised us of her plight. This beautiful lanky girl should weigh around 80 pounds, but she’s practically skeletal at 43 pounds. Sloopy has a beautiful coat with a long, luxurious tail, but she hadn’t been brushed in a very long time. Now that she’s safe with us, we are treating her for a mild cold and helping to build up her weight and her confidence.
9/21 update:
Sloopy is now in a foster home. She is gaining some much needed weight. Her foster mom reports that she’s a very sweet dog that loves to follow her around. Sloopy is up to 57 pounds!

Sloopy is a gentle dog. She rides beautifully in the car. Her foster mom is teaching her how to walk on a leash nicely. She is very willing to learn, all she needs is a leader to teach her how to be the marvelous dog she was meant to be.

To arrange to meet Sloopy, please complete the online application first and then contact 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.
