4 month old Olivia was dropped off in the animal shelter’s dropbox in the dead of night.   Who does that?  Someone cold and heartless in our opinion.   Our volunteers jumped into action and headed out to bring her to safety.  Olivia has a very sweet nature and just wants to get well and find a family to love.

Poor little girl is suffering from pain and itching from her skin condition and terror from her abandonment.  Our volunteer said she whimpered and cried during her trip to our vet.  Can you blame her?   These types of stories are just heartbreaking.

Olivia will need vet visits, costly antibiotics, medicated baths and a foster home.  Can she count on your support?   Please send your donations to help Olivia in her fight to recover her health.


If you would like to meet Olivia, 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 — $495.00 for purebred puppies, $395 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $295.00 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.
