Please Sponsor My Vet CareCHECK OUT MY NEW PHOTOS!


He was rescued from South Los Angeles Animal Shelter and is suffering from double ear infections, a skin condition and peri-anal fistulas (ouch), as well as some sort of abscess on his beautiful face. He is currently at our vet being evaluated and receiving treatment.

Our vet has told us that the wound on his face is worse than initially thought.  It appears that the abscess extends from his ear canal to his face.  This means very costly treatment, antibiotics and most likely more specialized surgery to correct this issue and prevent it from recurring.

Spike is a wonderful boy. He was turned in by owners who could not afford the ongoing treatment that he needs. We will immediately put him on a hydrolized protein diet to help with his skin conditions. (Hydrolyzed protein diets help food-allergic dogs by providing such small protein molecules that an allergic reaction is virtually impossible.) This diet is effective but expensive and he will probably need it for the rest of his life.

We are encouraged because he has begun to gain weight on this diet.  That is great news!

Spike is very gentle and sweet and takes treats very gracefully. He seemed truly grateful to be out of that scary shelter and on his way to a brighter future.

Our rescue has been hit very hard with medical cases in the last week. We are scrambling to keep up. If you are in a position to make a donation in any amount, we would be tremendously grateful. Your gift is tax deductible as allowed by law. (EIN 20-3455479). Will you please share his story? He would love to have a foster home to recover in!

If you would like to meet Spike, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
