GSROC got the call from a local shelter about 8 month old Summer. She was part of an cruelty investigation and has been brought to safety. Her prior home likes to swing her around by her hind legs! Luckily, she is now with GSROC and we have promised her that will never happen again.
Due to the way she was treated by her former family, Summer’s hip was damaged. Thanks to GSROC supporters, funds were raised to pay for the corrective surgery she needed. Summer has had this surgery and is recovering. We have noticed she is not putting complete weight on her affected leg. Our vet has ordered aqua therapy for Summer in hopes of building up her muscles so she can return to full function.
Summer has such a sweet disposition, we want to provide her with every chance for a full recovery. Can she count on your support?
This little sweetie is happy, bouncy and loves to play. She loves people and is friendly to all the dogs in her foster home. Old, young, big or small, Summer loves all of them. Sit down and give this girl some attention and you will have a loyal friend for life.
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.
