Aren't I cute?

18 month old Tara was picked up as a stray by Animal Control.  GSROC got the call that she had no prospects and hurried to save her.

She is a happy girl who is always smiling.  Tara greets people politely, she is always ready to make new friends.   At a recent adoption event, she enjoyed meeting everyone who stopped to pet her, including children.  She gets along well with dogs and the noise and excitement at the event did not phase her.   Recently we introduced her to small dogs and she was curious about the small dog but not aggressive.

Tara has an old injury to her front leg that didn’t heal properly. This does not appear to hamper her gait – she enjoys long walks and has lots of energy.  It is noticeable at times because she does not put all her weight on it now and again.   Don’t tell her though – she hasn’t noticed and it doesn’t slow her down one bit.

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.
