AUGUST 2020 – Violet has made great strides in her quest for good health.  Her fur is growing back and she is looking forward to finding a home where she can relax and enjoy the rest of her life.  She is making great strides in her quest for health and just requires maintenance medications.

JULY 2020

Violet is still in the hospital being treated for a variety of infections.  Her spirits are getting brighter as she is starting to feel much better.  Violet has a long way to go as she has been neglected for a very long time.  Our vet tells us that she had given birth to numerous litters, even at her advanced age.  We are working to build up Violet’s energy and show her how it feels to be loved.  Can you help with a gift in any amount for Violet?

10 year old Violet had only an hour left to live when GSROC learned about her plight. Listed as a stray at a high kill shelter, she was in very bad shape with no help in sight. Violet (previously known as “Clementine” at SEAACA) has skin infections, eye infections, painful pyometria, dental issues, a lump on her face, and she has difficulty walking. Clearly, this poor girl has been bred and bred, then cast away when she was no longer useful.

If you would like to meet Violet, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
