I'm Housebroken!I Love To Play!

We are not sure how a dog as good looking as Sophie ended up unwanted in a high kill shelter. When we heard about her, we were determined to show her that happy endings do happen!

Sophie is safely in the GSROC lifeboat now and is staying with one of our foster parents. She is a young girl who likes to play with other dogs. She is a confident dog and likes to play with big dogs as well as small ones. She is very alert and likes to be aware of everything going on around her.

Her foster mom reports Sophie enjoys following her from room to room when they are home and then will willingly settle down at her feet. She shares her foster mom’s time with 2 small pugs and does not seem to mind.

Sophie has promised to provide unwavering loyalty and love to her new family.

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.
