No cats

Stitch is a beautiful 2 year old blonde boy, who landed in a scary shelter when his owner could no longer keep him.   It is obvious that someone took time with Stitch, as he is affectionate and gentle, but physically very strong.

He needs someone experienced in handling large, powerful dogs. Stitch likes to see himself as “large and in charge” at times when he is around other dogs.   Training and structure will help Stitch understand what is expected of him.

Recently we introduced Stitch to some cats and he let us know, in no uncertain terms – he needs a feline free home. Cats are not one of his favorite animals. He also met some tortoises. Stitch wasn’t sure what type of animal a tortoise really was. Whenever they moved, he would bark and hide behind the legs of our volunteer.

Stitch likes to have fun and go for walks, he is always ready to have fun.  Check out this video of his most recent outing.

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 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.
