Our Adoption Process:
Thank you for wanting to make a difference for a dog in need. We look forward to the opportunity to help you choose an ideal new addition to your family. Timing is EVERYTHING when it comes to a successful adoption. Please give long and careful thought to whether or not you are in a position to care for a large breed dog and to commit to its needs for the rest of the dog's life. If you are fortunate, your German Shepherd will live 12-13 years, so before you begin the process, think about where you will be 2, 4, 6 or 10 years from now.
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online or via fax. To make sure that your application is accepted, please make sure you have completed the r_equired* fields. 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.
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.
We also ask our adopters to help us spread the word about the important work that we do.
Our adoption donation minimum is $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.
