One year old Zahara is a gorgeous girl who turns heads as she walks by.  She has classic good looks and and an inquisitive nature.   She was a big hit at our recent adoption event and friendly to the people she met.  She is more than just a pretty face though.  Zahara is a very smart girl and loves to learn new things.   She walks easily on a leash and is treat motivated.  She pays close attention when walking with you – she doesn’t want to miss anything interesting you may say.

Zahara likes to play ball and loves to give kisses.

Zahara knows she is a special girl and currently believes she is the only dog you will need in your home.  In her mind – why would you even consider having another dog when you can have Zahara?  We are working with her and believe she may be willing to accept friendly male dogs in her social circle.

If you would like to meet Zahara, 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.
