I Play Well With Others!I Need A Playmate!

We decided to give Snickers honorary German Shepherd status when we heard his sad story. This poor puppy was picked up as a stray, went unclaimed, got adopted, and was returned to the shelter 2 days later due to landlord problems! That means that at age 4 months, Snickers is already looking for his third home and some stability in his life. To compound matters, who ever owned Snickers originally mutilated his ears by trying to crop them to stand up. Also, his tail is “docked” using a home technique that was certainly painful.

Poor little Snickers is desperate for a secure, loving environment and he would positively LOVE to have another dog to play with! He tries to get the other dogs to play with him using all sorts of antics and comical movements! After he’s tuckered out from playing, Snickers loves to cuddle up with you and nod off. This is a darling, deserving puppy and we want to find him an extra, extra special home.

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.
