How anyone could abandon their dog at a shelter the day she is ready to give birth is something we just don’t understand. What we DO understand is this girl needed help!
The same day that she entered the shelter, Valentine’s Day, she gave birth to five perfect little puppies. The shelter staff encouraged her and assisted her, as one by one the puppies arrived. Sweetie is now safely in a GSROC foster home with her little family. We have discovered seh likes cats!
We have named the littlest boy Cupid, and his brothers are Romeo and Amore. The little girls are Cherish and Lovey, which not only celebrates the day that they were born, but captures their beautiful natures as well.Raising newborn puppies is a daunting task that requires a very compassionate and alert foster family. All sorts of things can happen in the early days, so we are monitoring the family vigilantly.
We know that we have 5 sets of vaccines, 11 de-worming treatments, and 5 sterilization surgeries ahead of us as the puppies mature, so we need to raise $2000.00 just to cover the basic costs.
We are hoping that you can pledge a donation for our Valentine’s Day family to help us reach our goal. Can you help this darling momma dog and her little family with a tax-deductible gift in any amount?

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.
