I Like Kitties!I Love To Play!UPDATED BIO!

Tara is a young girl, we believe her to be approximately 11 months old. She had been abandoned in the desert and was very scared and hungry when found. She had no identification and it was apparent she had been left behind.

GSROC opened our lifeboat and welcomed her aboard. She is a happy girl and likes to have fun. She is playful with other dogs and enjoys a good romp. We have not tested her with cats.

Tara had been on her own for awhile and was very hungry. Is it any wonder that she can be a bit protective around her food? She does not want to share it the memory of severe hunger is too recent for this sweetie.

All she needs is a loving home where she can continue her training and feel safe. She is smart, listens well and wants to please!

At a recent adoption event, Tara impressed everyone with her friendly, outgoing personality. She was so happy to meet everyone who stopped by to say hello. She is funny and full of energy.

Tara was introduced to a cat. She was interested and tried to make friends. We believe with proper supervision and adequate time, Tara could live in a home with a cat.

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.
