Washington is a shepherd mix puppy who had a horrible start in life in the hands of a neglectful person. Washington hasn’t learned that people can be kind but we are working to let him know that at the end of each hand with a treat in it is a loving, caring person. Without the devotion and patience of our wonderful volunteers, there would be no hope for Washington, but everyone is determined to see him and his brothers thrive.
Washington is too fearful to go into a foster home, so he is in boarding. We are desperately seeking sponsors to help offset the costs of his nightly room and board, as well as of his neutering, vaccines and deworming. Can you please help Washington with a gift in any amount? Please click on DONATE and indicate that you wish to help Washington learn what it’s like to be loved. Thank 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.
