I Love Children!I Need A Sponsor!

Now you can see why our volunteers dread going to animal shelters. Each time they are there to rescue dogs, the all too common occurrence is that someone else will be turning in a dog at the front desk as they watch in horror….

Today was Zoey’s lucky day because our devoted volunteer could not turn away from Zoey’s hardship. The family said that they adopted Zoey from the same shelter in September but were returning her now (November) because she is “too destructive”. Guess what? All 6 month old dogs can be destructive if not redirected to more appropriate pursuits!!!

Their loss is our gain. Zoey is ravishing and her coat is bright, shiny white. She was in a family with children and loves to be around them, although she has a lot of puppy energy, so she could topple a toddler. Zoey is smiley and appreciative of every kindness she receives. She may have a touch of American Eskimo or Samoyed in her—we can’t tell for sure. We know that she will adapt to a new family very well because she very much wants to bond with someone.

Remember! All puppies require a great deal of work! They take time, patience, understanding and love. Please only consider adopting Zoey if you have the time and resources to devote to her. To arrange to meet her, please complete the online application first and then contact mdalescomm@aol.com for more details.

Adopting a dog is for a LIFETIME.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
