I Like Kitties!I'm Recovering!UPDATED BIO!Special Needs

Zeanna’s owner faced hard financial times and despite his efforts, he was unable to care for Zeanna. He came to us to help Zeanna when he had no where else to turn. GSROC whisked her to our vet’s office, where she was evaluated and treated. She has been diagnosed with pancreatic insufficiency – she lacks the necessary enzymes to digest her food properly. This is a condition that she was born with–it is fairly frequent in German Shepherds and can be easily managed once it is diagnosed.

Zeanna has been placed on a special diet and provided the enzymes she needs on a daily basis. She will need these enzymes for the rest of her life, but as long as they are provided, she will live a normal life. We have seen immediate improvement and Zeanna is feeling much, much better. Her coat is now glossy and full. Her step is lively and the light has returned to her eyes.

She is now in a foster home with other dogs and cats. Zeanna is patiently waiting to find a home of her very own.

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.
