I love belly rubs!Please Foster Me!

Watson is a 2.5 yr old boy who was wandering in a neighborhood as a stray.  Animal control was able to capture him and brought him to an overcrowded shelter.   No one came to claim him and Watson didn’t have many positive options.   When GSROC heard this sweet guy’s story, we hopped in our van and rushed to save him.

Watson is busy making friends at GSROC and is impressing our volunteers with his friendly personality.  This boy loves belly rubs and will happily plop down if he believes you are willing.   He is a sweet guy who walks really well on a leash.  Watson is happiest walking right by your side, he doesn’t want to pull forward and leave you behind.  He wants you to enjoy the walk as much as he does.

If you would like to meet Watson, 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.
