As 2005 was drawing to a close, German Shepherd Rescue learned of family and a dog in desperate need. A single mother of two girls had lost her job of 16 years and was living at a homeless shelter in downtown LA. The family had lost practically everything, but they were clinging to their most precious possession of all: Their beloved dog, Tacomeh, who was living in their car several blocks from the homeless shelter. When the mother realized that the best place for their dear dog was in a stable, loving home, she made the heartbreaking but kind decision to find Tacomeh a new family. German Shepherd Rescue was contacted for assistance.

Our dedicated volunteers mobilized quickly and Tacomeh was shuttled to a safe and warm boarding kennel where she is getting lots of attention from our concerned team. As we learn more about Tacomeh, we will update her bio with more details. For now, we know that she is medium-sized, sweet and obliging. She is grateful for every kindness, and she has the happy spirit that you would expect in a 1 year old dog.

If you are interested in adopting Tacomeh to give her the happy ending that she so richly deserves, please complete the online application and then contact for more details.

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
