I Love To Play!Please Foster Me!No small dogs

Zara has just arrived from a crowded shelter. She was suffering from a case of doggie sniffles (Kennel Cough) and was about to be euthanized. About $100 worth of medication and 2 weeks of doting care from our volunteers knocked the bug out of her and she is feeling fantastic.

As we learn more about Zara, we will update her profile and share more. At her first adoption event, she was warm and welcoming to all humans that she met, but a little too high strung for toddlers and smaller children. Zara seems to be particular about the dogs that she will allow into her inner circle, but we will be working with her to introduce her to some friends. We think that Zara would love to be a jogging partner or engage in hiking or another hearty activity!

Please check back soon for more details about Zara.

If you would like to meet Zara, 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.
