Please Sponsor My Vet CareSPECIAL UPDATE!Adult home needed

URGENT!  Stitch is bloating and has been rushed into surgery.  The bill for this treatment will be close to $6000.00.   Our budget can not handle that amount – can Stitch count on your support?  All donations, regardless of the amount are desperately needed!


UPDATE – Stitch surgery went well.  He is resting comfortably at the vet hospital.  He is able to get up and walk a bit but requires supervision since he still need pain meds.  He has nibbled at his food, but has not really begun eating.


3 year old Stitch landed in a crowded shelter and had no where else to turn.  He was picked up as a stray and was even wearing a collar.  When no one came to claim him, GSROC got the call from the shelter staff.   We have discovered that Stitch can become extremely protective of his “person” in his home.  We are now looking for a sponsor for his training.  He must live in an adult, experienced home with no small animals or children.

If you would like to meet Stitch, 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.
