Sparrow is only 1 year old and already has endured so much suffering. She is drastically underweight – she is less than 35 lbs! In addition, she has a severe case of mange, leaving her with weeping sores and bald patches all over her body. This poor girl is suffering.
Our volunteer gasped when she saw her. She is so thin, she reminded her of a delicate bird and named her Sparrow.
Sparrow enjoyed her freedom ride, she was a polite passenger and settled in for the ride to safety.
Can we count on your help for Sparrow’s care? She will need a special diet to increase her nutritional status, medicated baths, blood work, IVs and costly antibiotics. All of that adds up quickly and we are hoping to find sponsors to assist with her vet care.

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.
