\NCan You Please Help Me?

A kind samaritan allerted one of our volunteers about a young male shepherd she found at a hiking trail near her home. The dog had no collar, tags or a microchip.

GSROC rushed him to our vet where he has been evaluated and treatment has started. At first we thought Wayfarer may have been attacked by another dog or perhaps a coyote. However, our vet has told us these injuries were caused by a chemical substance.

The vet believes Wayfarer must have gotten into some chemical substance since he has injuries to his face and inside his mouth. Perhaps a chemical was left open and Wayfarer checked it out not realizing it was dangerous?

Regardless, Wayfarer is now beginning costly care to treat his injuries. Can you find it in your heart to help support him by sending a donation?

Click on the donate button at the bottom of the page if you are able. 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

  • 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.
