Theo is the sweetest soul in the world! He knows how to sit and how to give a paw and he appears to have been well cared for in his past life. We have no idea how he ended up wandering around on his own without a collar or tags on to help him get home…

A beautiful princess with a loving heart rescued Theo from the street and begged GSROC to help him in his time of need. We gulped when we learned of his age and that he would need medical treatment because our coffers are alarmingly empty. But we knew that we were Theo’s only hope, so we made room for him under our wing. Now, we are turning to you, our devoted supporters, to help us get Theo the medical care that he needs to relieve his pain.

Theo requires hip surgery right away. He already had a bad hip and the accident must have worsened it because he is in a lot of pain. Can you please help us to raise the funds for Theo’s surgery? To make a contribution to his fund, please click below and pledge your gift of any amount.

Theo is a very loveable gent who seems to have no problem with cats! As we learn more about him, we will update his bio so check back soon!

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.
