UPDATED BIO!No cats or small dogs

Sylvia became infected with mange.  Her family turned her into a local shelter stating they could not afford the care she needed.   When GSROC heard of her plight, we could not turn our back on her. Fast forward a few months and some loving care by our volunteers and she is healed and feeling great!  Check out her new photos to see how great she looks!

One of her favorite things is to take strolls in the park with our volunteers.   She loves people but doesn’t care for other dogs.  She figures after all the hard work she has put in getting better – she deserves all the attention.

She has completed professional training and enjoys friendly people who are not heavy-handed.  No small dogs for this girl, but she may enjoy a gentle, large dog.

If you would like to meet Sylvia, 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.
