Three-year-old Thorr is a shepherd/lab mix. He has a happy disposition and loves other large dogs. Soon, we’ll introduce him to cats and small dogs and see what he thinks.

Thorr was one of 112 dogs that a collector in Kern County was forced to give up when the county closed his facility. We had no intention of taking Thorr with us when we went there to rescue the purebred shepherds, but when Thorr literally “ran for his life” to get out of there, our volunteers vowed to return for him. And they did.

Thorr is a great dog with a ton of potential. He is very exhuberant about life and is working on his nice manners. A basic obedience class will make a huge difference in teaching Thorr what is expected of him. He will make a great family member with just a little bit of training and leadership. This silly doofus thinks he’s a lap dog and doesn’t realize just how big he is!

To arrange to meet Thorr, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for more information.




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.
