At just 5 months old, Stella landed in a scarey animal shelter and very nearly lost her life. The shelter was facing a shortage of space, and Stella had the misfortune of catching a mild cold at the shelter, so she was placed on the euthanasia list to make space for other dogs coming in. We couldn’t let little Stella be destroyed just because she had the sniffles!
Our rescue is beyond full and overflowing with beautiful, highly adoptable dogs but we are so thrilled that we were able to save Stella. Your donations make it possible for us to rescue puppies like Stella, even if they are not “perfect”.
Stella has just arrived so we will update her bio shortly. If you are interested in meeting her, 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 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.
